We evaluate the qualifications of applicants for respiratory care, and grant licenses to those who qualify. We also establish rules and regulations to ensure the integrity and competence of licensees.
Who we serve
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.
