INDIAN RIVER COUNTY -- Indian River Medical Center's Pier Mangieri is the first respiratory therapist on the Treasure Coast to receive adult critical care specialty certification.
The National Board for Respiratory Care began offering this specialty certification last year.
Eligible certificants have already demonstrated advanced knowledge in the field of respiratory care, therefore the exam focuses on competencies unique to therapists practicing in an adult critical care setting and not basic competencies of general respiratory care.
Mr. Mangieri came to IRMC in 1994.
