Respiratory Therapy Wins Again

For the second time in a row, our Respiratory Therapy program has won the NC Sputum Bowl Competition! They’ve been invited to National Competition in New Orleans, Louisiana. #GoTeamRCC

The Bowl is the number one place to test your respiratory care knowledge against the best of the best in the profession. Nowhere else will you find therapists cheering on teams from across the country as they race to answer questions on everything from aerosol delivery to arcane gas laws. A Student Sputum Bowl team consists of three people sitting at a table. Close to them is another team of three seated at their own table. Both teams will listen closely when the contest question reader verbally calls out a question that concerns some aspect of respiratory care. The team that buzzes in first has 10 seconds to answer correctly and score a point. At the end of 10 minutes, the team with the most points wins.
