In brief: Many helpful facts..

A respiratory therapist can ensure you are using your inhalers properly.
They can also teach you specilized breathing techniques which may decrease work of breathing and increase breathing comfort. A respiratory therapist can show you how to measure your respiratory rate and measure your oxygen level with a pulse oximeter (a device that measures oxygen levels in blood).
