The Board of Registration in Respiratory Care (BORRC) serves all the people in the Commonwealth, particularly the underserved, and promotes healthy people, healthy families, and healthy communities.  The principal mission is the protection of the public health, safety, and welfare of all people in the Commonwealth.

Respiratory Care workers provide services to consumers, under the direction of a licensed physician. They identify, prevent and rehabilitate acute or chronic dysfunction, to promote the greatest respiratory health and function. Respiratory care also includes teaching the patient, and the patient's family, respiratory care procedures as part of the patient's ongoing program.
