Ed Waits 4th Annual RC Conf

June 24, 2015


This fourth annual lectureship is named for a respected pioneer in respiratory care in this area of the southeastern United States, Mr. Ed Waits.  He began simple oxygen therapy in the mid-60’s and introduced innovation in all the important modalities of mechanical ventilation and nebulizer medication delivery over the ensuing decades as head of the emerging department known simply as “Respiratory Care.”  He has trained many, many active practitioners of this important discipline and supported general and pulmonary practices and critical care providers, including nurses and physicians.
