Sputum Bowl
The Sputum Bowl has been a part of AARC tradition since 1978.

The lights. The action. The costumes. The fabulous half-time entertainment.

The Sputum Bowl has been a time-honored tradition at the AARC Congress since 1978. Uniquely “RT,” the Bowl is THE number one place to test your respiratory care knowledge against the best of the best in the profession. Nowhere else will you find therapists cheering on teams from across the country as they race to answer questions on everything from aerosol delivery to arcane gas laws.

Fun features like “Ask the Expert,” “Risk/Reward,” “Ask the Posse,” and “Video Visuals” add to the excitement, and live streaming on Twitter guarantees everyone has a chance to keep up with the action.

In recent years, however, the competition has been dominated by student teams who come to the Congress fresh off of their wins on the state level. The number of practitioner teams has been on a steady decline.

For that reason, organizers have decided that we must have 15 teams registered by July 15 to continue the practitioner competition.

We know state competitions are gearing up now, so consider gathering a group of like-minded colleagues together and fielding a team. Or if you just want to skip straight to Nationals, get your group on board and register as a Renegade Team!

Either way, you’ll be in for a great time in Indianapolis this October!
