Description

RESPIRATORY CARE is the official science journal of the American Association for Respiratory Care (AARC). The RESPIRATORY CARE app features articles from 2003 through today, with new articles released weekly. Everyone can browse abstracts and subscribers can view complete full text articles in the app and as a PDF. Full issue download available for offline reading. RESPIRATORY CARE deals with the subject area of the same name, and thus publishes articles pertaining to disorders affecting the cardiorespiratory system, including their pathogenesis, pathophysiology, manifestations, diagnostic assessment, monitoring, prevention, and management. Because the practice of respiratory care prominently involves equipment and devices, the development, evaluation, and use of these things feature prominently in what the Journal publishes. However, as indicated by the word "care" in its name, the Journal also emphasizes the patient, and on improving all aspects of the care of individuals affected by respiratory disease.In addition to the reports of original research and the other article types listed below, an important function of RESPIRATORY CARE is the publication of state-of-the-art special issues arising from conferences convened by the Journal. These Journal Conferences have been an integral part of the Journal for more than 30 years.
