Respiratory therapists provide care that helps manage a wide range of breathing problems, caused by disease, accident, or illness. Respiratory therapists work in a variety of health care settings from the infant to adult in the emergency room, nursery, Intensive Care Unit, and the general patient care unit .

They manage your airway when you cannot breathe adequately during a respiratory arrest or accident and can operate highly technical equipment to help you breathe.
