The new edition of this essential resource covers core areas of respiratory care in a convenient outline format that makes it a great quick-reference guide, a handy review tool for credentialing examinations, and a comprehensive reference guide for clinical practice. Key topics include basic science; anatomy and physiology of the respiratory, cardiovascular, renal, and neurological systems; and therapeutic aspects of neonatal, pediatric, and adult respiratory care. Also features extensive coverage of pharmacology and infection control.
    • The convenient outline format breaks information down into manageable bits of information that make it ideal for study, review, and quick reference
    • The comprehensive coverage of key topics — from introductory material through therapeutic care — consolidates the full spectrum of respiratory care into one essential resource
    • Completely updated to reflect the significant advancements in the field of respiratory care
    • Reflects the required core content of the most recent National Board for Respiratory Care (NBRC) examination matrix, ensuring the most up-to-date competency requirements for certification
    • Features new chapters on ventilatory management for obstructive pulmonary disease, adult respiratory distress syndrome, NIPPV, tracheal gas insufflation, prone positioning, and liquid ventilation
