The role of the respiratory physiotherapist is to assist in clearing the airways of the patients and maintaining and improving the integrity of the respiratory system. Respiratory care helps people who suffer from chronic diseases like asthma, emphysema and bronchitis. Also, it helps those who have suffered heart attacks or who have sleep disorders.
