Summary

This competency-based resource introduces readers to the assembly and care of respiratory care equipment with an emphasis on techniques for troubleshooting-equipment-including many step-by-step algorithms. The text uniquely focuses on the theory behind equipment in practice with detailed rationales that explain equipment necessity and function. Self-assessment quizzes that follow the National Board for Respiratory Care (NBRC) question-type format help learners measure their progress.

  • New chapter on high-frequency ventilators
  • Critical-thinking scenarios in each chapter to help readers improve their problem-solving skills
  • New coverage of high range/low range flowmeters in pediatric section
  • Emphasizes equipment assembly and troubleshooting through the use of algorithms, a key component of the NBRC exam matrix
  • Classification by control variables helps readers distinguish between different ventilators.
