Help your students breathe a little easier knowing there’s a proven way to master respiratory pharmacology! For more than 30 years, Rau’s Respiratory Care Pharmacology has been the preeminent text on the subject. With easy-to-grasp terminology, relatable explanations, and reader-friendly writing, it simplifies the process of learning pharmacology material like never before. Rau’s is organized into three logical sections, covering the basics of respiratory care, frequently used drugs, and critical care medications. New to the 11th edition is a Clinical Connections feature that helps students connect lessons from the book with the clinical setting, along with updated information on COVID-19 and changes to drug approvals. Rau’s truly is the best source for preparing your students for success on their exams and in professional practice.

    • Clinical scenarios with follow-up SOAP assessment help you assess your comprehension of the material.
    • Self-assessment questions offer you thought-provoking opportunities to test your comprehension of key concepts.
    • Learning objectives parallel the levels tested by the NBRC® exams to help you identify important information that goes beyond memorization and recall.
    • Key terms with definitions provide easy access to the pharmacologic vocabulary you should embrace.
    • Key points boxes in each chapter highlight important concepts in the lesson.
    • Glossary of all key terms in the text aids you in understanding the terminology associated with respiratory care pharmacology.

    • Alphabetical drug index provides a direct index to look up information based on drug name.
    • NEW and UPDATED! Clinical Connection boxes assist you in connecting information in the text to the clinical setting, including providing patients a better understanding of their clinical conditions as related to their drug treatments.
    • UPDATED! Chapter 1 reflects changes to drug approval.
