Respiratory Therapy Schools

Breathe deeply, and learn about being a respiratory therapist. In this position, you may work directly with patients to evaluate and analyze their breathing patterns. You may also work alongside a physician to treat and care for patients with other cardiopulmonary disorders. Respiratory therapists may also be largely responsible for a patient's diagnostic procedures and treatments. There may be the opportunity for interaction with other health care staff in planning, modifying, and maintaining a patient's daily health care regimen.

Under the orders of a doctor, therapists administer medication, oxygen and other types of breathing treatments. Respiratory therapists also complete diagnostic tests such as pulmonary function tests.
