Respiratory Therapist Work Conditions

Respiratory therapists held about 112,700 jobs in 2010. Most respiratory therapists work in hospitals. Others may work in nursing care facilities or travel to patientsí homes. Respiratory therapists are on their feet for long periods and may need to lift or turn disabled patients.

Like other healthcare workers, respiratory therapists may be exposed to infectious diseases

Most respiratory therapists work full time.  Because they may work in medical facilities such as hospitals that are always open, some may work evening, night, or weekend hours.
