How to hire a respiratory disease expert


The number of people dying each year from chronic respiratory disease has increased significantly over the past four decades, and in several countries, this ranks among the leading causes of death and disability. While the reasons for this increase are not yet fully known, some experts attribute this phenomenon at least in part to increasing levels of air pollution in certain regions and the changes brought upon by climate change.

What does a respiratory disease expert do?

Respiratory consultants are physicians who specialize in disorders affecting the respiratory (breathing) system, which includes the nose, nasal passages, sinuses, throat, larynx, windpipe, lungs, chest wall, diaphragm, pulmonary blood circulation, and the respiratory control system in the brain. 

Respiratory illnesses that respiratory consultants diagnose and treat include:

  • persistent cough

  • breathlessness or wheezing

  • breathing-related sleep disorders including snoring and sleep apnea

  • asthma

  • chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)

  • emphysema

  • pneumonia

  • lung infections, including bronchitis and pulmonary tuberculosis

  • lung cancer

  • respiratory problems in patients with other cancers 

  • respiratory problems in patients under critical care (emergency rooms and ICUs)

  • pulmonary vascular disease, including pulmonary embolism and pulmonary hypertension

  • interstitial lung disease, including pulmonary fibrosis

  • sarcoidosis

  • bronchiectasis

  • pneumothorax

  • obesity hypoventilation syndrome

  • allergies affecting the respiratory system

The typical responsibilities of respiratory disease specialists can include:

  • Reviewing referrals from other physicians to diagnose, treat, and help prevent respiratory illnesses

  • Using diagnostic methods such as spirometry, capillary blood gas testing, cardiopulmonary exercise testing, peak flow monitoring, chest x-rays, bloodwork, sleep studies, CT scans, bronchoscopy, bronchoalveolar lavage, endobronchial ultrasound, and lung biopsy 

  • Performing or consulting with thoracic surgeons on procedures such as airway dilatation, lobectomy (removal of one lung), lung transplants, oxygen therapy, insertion of pleural catheters or stents 

  • Consulting on occupational lung disease

  • Consulting on pulmonary rehabilitation programs

  • Lung cancer screening

  • Performing respiratory research as part of the curriculum for respiratory medicine or as a respiratory disease scientist (existing consultants can work toward a Ph.D. or an academic clinical fellowship) 

Respiratory consultants work in hospitals, medical schools, private practice, clinics, and research institutes. This specialty requires a medical degree (M.D.) as well as several years of additional specialist training, typically as an internist with a focus on respiratory medicine. Respiratory disease experts have various job titles that can include Respiratory Consultant, Pulmonologist, Respiratory Disease Specialist, Respiratory Physician, Respiratory Medicine Consultant, Critical Care Pulmonologist, and Senior Clinical Fellow in Respiratory Medicine. There are also respiratory disease content writers, who specialize in writing in this field for the media, government, business, and academia.

How much does it cost to hire a respiratory disease consultant?

To hire a freelance respiratory disease consultant, the fee generally ranges from 80–200 USD per hour depending on the required skillset and the level of experience necessary. 

The hourly fee can be negotiated upfront based on the estimated number of project hours, or a flat fee (for projects of a defined scope) can be discussed. If you need short-term/temporary access to respiratory disease consulting services, then hiring a freelance consultant on our platform is a convenient and cost-effective way to access this expertise.

How do you write an effective job post to hire an infectious disease expert?

The best way to attract the top Kolabtree freelancers in this field is to make your project description informative. You will need to provide details on the following:

  • Skills required (e.g., expertise on viral respiratory infections)

  • What the project area is (e.g., clinical management of patients with acute respiratory distress)

  • What the project entails (e.g., improving the treatment outcomes)

  • What the deliverables are (be specific about what you need the outputs to be)

  • Duration of the project (provide an estimate of how many hours work you will need per week/by when you need the project to be completed)

  • By when you need to hire (having more leeway on this will give you more time to choose the best expert for your needs)

  • Your budget (per hour or fixed fee)

If you are unsure what exactly is required, providing as much detail as possible will allow the experts to still make an informed bid for your project and suggest the best routes forward. 

The Kolabtree platform makes it easier than ever before to rapidly connect and collaborate with top respiratory disease consultants who can provide your project with the required expertise.
