The Midlands Regional Winter Conference was held at Lexington Medical Center on February 20, 2015. Forty respiratory therapists and respiratory care students braved a cold, 17 degree winter day to attend this educational event. For their attendance, the respiratory therapists received 6 hours of CRCE’s, as well as hearing some valuable information. The vendor hall featured bright displays and representatives from Carolina Diagnostics, Hill-Rom, Phillips/Respironics and Ikaria. Various topics were presented: Cardiopulmonary Rehab for the Tracheostomy and Ventilator Patient, Ebola: What you need to know, Trilogy and Decreasing Readmission Rates, Asthma Disease Management-An Evolving Process, and Spirometry, as well as a passionate presentation titled “What has the AARC/SCSRC done for you lately” from the SCSRC’s own Jakki Grimball. Sponsors for the event included Passy Muir, Inc., SC DHEC, Philips/Respironics , Carolina Diagnostics. A very special “Thank You” goes to the Lexington Medical Center, for allowing us the use of the Lexington Medical Park 1 Auditorium for the event.
The Midlands Regional Board Members are already planning and looking forward to next year’s conference. The 2016 Midlands Regional Winter Conference is set for March 10, 2016, so mark your calendars!
