The American Association for Respiratory Care (AARC) International Congress accepted five research abstracts by Boise State University Department of Respiratory Care faculty members Lonny Ashworth, T.J. Wing, and their current and former students. Six abstracts were originally submitted for consideration.
The students will present a poster and a podium presentation at the AARC International Congress in November 2013. The research submissions are nationally refereed by respiratory care students and professionals. The Boise State students will be presenting in forums that include leading therapist and physician researchers throughout the world.
The students are to be commended on excellent research and excellent submissions. The following is a list of research projects, student researchers and faculty mentors:
