A comprehensive text on respiratory care for neonates, infants, and children, Neonatal and Pediatric Respiratory Care, 4th Edition provides a solid foundation in the assessment and treatment of respiratory care disorders. Clear, full-color coverage emphasizes clinical application of the principles of neonatal/pediatric respiratory care. New to this edition is coverage of the latest advances in clinical practice, a chapter devoted to quality and safety, and summary boxes discussing real-world clinical scenarios. From author Brian Walsh, an experienced educator and respiratory therapist, this text is an excellent study tool for the NBRC’s Neonatal/Pediatric Specialty exam!

    • A comprehensive approach covers all of the major topics of respiratory care for neonates, infants and children, including both theory and application
    • Exam preparation is enhanced by the inclusion of the content in the exam matrix for the NBRC’s neonatal/pediatric specialty exam.
    • A streamlined, logical organization makes it easy to build a solid foundation of knowledge.
    • Unique Pediatric Thoracic Trauma chapter focuses on common forms of thoracic trauma, a condition that accounts for 5-10% of admissions to pediatric trauma centers.
    • Learning objectives at the beginning of each chapter highlight what you should learn by breaking down key content into measurable behaviors, criteria, and conditions.
    • Assessment questions in each chapter are written in the NBRC multiple-choice style as found on the neonatal and pediatric specialty exam, with answers, page references, and rationales available on a companion Evolve website.
    • Case studies help you master the more difficult areas of care for neonatal and pediatric disorders.
    • New learning features and a fresh look make this text easier to study and use.
    • A companion Evolve website includes links to related sites for further research and study.
