What is a Respiratory Therapist?

Respiratory therapists are allied health professionals who specialize in assessing and improving patients’ lung functions. RTs, also called RRT’s (Registered Respiratory Therapists), assess and treat a wide array of diseases, illnesses, and injuries that affect the respiratory system. They must have advanced knowledge of pulmonary care and high-tech equipment, such as ventilators, to effectively improve a patient’s quality of life or even save it.

One of the many great aspects of a career in respiratory therapy is helping patients at all stages of life, from premature infants to the elderly. These patients rely on RTs to address asthma, COPD, pneumonia, lung cancer, cystic fibrosis, lung trauma, and acute respiratory failure.

Respiratory therapists are in high demand nationwide. The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects employment growth of 21% in this field through 2028 largely due to an aging population.
