CLIFTON (FOX19) -- Cincinnati State’s state champion respiratory therapy student team recently earned second place honors in a national quiz competition that is affectionately known in the respiratory community as the “Sputum Bowl.”
State champion teams from 17 states took part in this event. The competition was in Anaheim, Calif., before an audience of about 1,000 at the American Association for Respiratory Care’s International Respiratory Convention & Exhibition.
During their trip the Cincinnati State students had the opportunity to meet Forrest M. Bird, an American inventor known in the industry as the "Father of Mechanical Ventilation."
