Respiratory therapy technicians assist doctors in providing consistent respiratory function to patients with breathing problems. A respiratory therapist performs chest physiotherapy on patients to remove mucus from their lungs which makes it easier for them to breathe.
A diploma in Respiratory Therapy Technician is a popular choice for those who wish to work in both home and public healthcare settings, assisting patients with cardio pulmonary abnormalities or deficiencies. The diploma is an intensive full time course that trains students on comprehensive respiratory care of critically ill patients.
After the completion of the course, candidates with diploma in respiratory therapy are eligible to find jobs in private/government hospitals with ICU facilities, surgical intensive care units and medical intensive care units etc. They can also work as respiratory care therapists in home healthcare to train patients and their families on how to take medications to use ventilators and other life support systems in their homes. Therapists also make emergency home visits when necessary for which they get handsomely reimbursed as well.
