PSRC Well Represented in Sputum Bowl
The PSRC was well represented in the 2013 AARC National Sputum Bowl held in Anaheim,
CA, during the AARC International Congress. Our practitioner team (Joe Camacci, Tiphany
Haupt and Pete Crochunis) once again made it to the final four before being defeated by a
tough team from California! Our student team (Jeff Mixell, Jessica Laubach and Jonathan
Cope) also played well and made it to the second day of the competition before losing a close
match in the semi-final round. Congratulations to both teams on a job well done!

AARC Releases Exam Prep Course!
The AARC has released an Exam Prep Course to help prepare candidates for the CRT or RRT

are graded and used to prepare a personal study presecription for you! Once you have the prescription, you will have access to study guides that are video recordings by leading respiratory therapists from around the country.
