Summary: A leader in respiratory care education for more than 35 years, this comprehensive textbook lays a strong foundation for a successful career.

In-depth discussions progress from the principles of respiratory care to applied anatomy and physiology, assessment, discussion of specific respiratory illnesses, basic therapy, acute and critical care, a ...show morend preventive and long-term care. Clinical Practice Guidelines (CPGs) and Therapist Driven Protocols (TDPs) in appropriate chapters familiarize you with patient care guidelines and decision trees as they are used in practice. A full-color format makes the text easier to read and brings out key detail in the illustrations. Mini-Clinis provide short vignettes applying content in the text to actual patient care, asking you to think critically on problems you may encounter. Clinical Practice Guidelines (CPGs) cover the steps of patient care with important information on indications/contraindications, hazards and complications, assessment of need, assessment of outcome, and monitoring. Therapist-Driven Protocols (TDPs) provide decision trees developed by hospitals, helping you to assess patients, initiate care, and evaluate outcomes. Rules of Thumb highlights rules, formulas, and key points important to clinical practice.

Key Point summaries in bulleted format help you clearly identify key concepts covered in each chapter. A Workbook includes a wide range of activities such as NBRC-type multiple-choice questions, case studies, experiments, and hands-on activities, allowing you to apply the knowledge you've gained from the text.
