Careers in Respiratory Care Science

Respiratory care science covers a wide range of topics, from emergency care and CPR to the operation of respiratory devices and the maintenance of patient records.

As a respiratory therapist, you need to have strong communication skills and attention to detail in order to provide the best possible care for your patients. You also need to be safety conscious, as you will be working with potentially hazardous materials and equipment.

In addition to your clinical duties, you will also be responsible for keeping accurate patient records and ensuring that all respiratory devices, such as ventilators, are properly cleaned and maintained.
