Members of the Respiratory Care Section are professionals who are committed to providing specialized respiratory critical care. All members of the healthcare team are welcome to join and contribute to the development and organization of the section.
Members of our section provide expertise in airway management, mechanical ventilation, physiologic monitoring, disease management, critical illness and injury of the pulmonary system, and all other aspects of the advanced care of critically ill patients.
This section communicates with the Society on issues dealing with respiratory care practice and provides technical expertise and guidance for the mutual interests of the healthcare team and the Society.
The section aims to provide support to the Society and section members through research and education in the areas of clinical, scientific, and technical aspects of patient care. It accomplishes this mission through communication, education, and research.
Communication: A key to the section’s success is developing a communication structure to relay information among the Society, the section chair, and section members.
Education: Develop a plan to ensure that the section becomes an integral part of the Society by educating both Society members and the special interests of the section members.
Research: Design a means to promote research among the section members through abstracts, posters, and studies.
