Workbook for Pilbeam's Mechanical Ventilation, 6th Edition
Corresponding to the chapters in Pilbeam's Mechanical Ventilation, 6th Edition, this workbook helps readers focus their study on the most important information and prepare for the NBRC certification exam. A wide range of exercises includes crossword puzzles, critical thinking questions, NBRC-style multiple-choice questions, case studies, waveform analysis, ventilation data analysis, and fill-in-the-blank and short-answer activities.
- Close correlation with the Pilbeam's main text supports learning from the textbook.
- Wide variety of learning exercises — including crossword puzzles, NBRC-style questions, case study exercises, waveform analysis, ventilation date analyses, and numerous question formats — helps readers assess their knowledge and practice areas of weakness.
- Critical Thinking questions ask readers to solve problems relating to real-life scenarios that may be encountered in practice.
- NEW! Graphic exercises appendix from the text is now located in the workbook for convenient access.
