Partnership With AARC

About AARC

Founded in 1943, the American Association for Respiratory Care (AARC) is the leading national and international professional association for respiratory care. The AARC encourages and promotes professional excellence, advances the science and practice of respiratory care, and serves as an advocate for patients and their families, the public, the profession and the respiratory therapist.

About Our Partnership

Edison Nation Medical and AARC will also conduct regular innovation searches targeted toward respiratory care and related issues.
