Respiratory Critical CareAuthors: David W. Chang, Gary White, Jonathan Waugh, Ruben Restrepo
Respiratory Critical Care is the definitive resource for both students and professionals in the field. The scope of material makes the book a stand-alone reference: while most volumes on the subject limit their coverage to mechanical ventilation, this text segues from mechanical ventilation into respiratory critical care, and concludes with clinical practice guidelines. The strategic sequencing of concepts ensures that each chapter prepares the reader for a more effective understanding of the next.
This exciting new textbook draws on the combined experience of its contributing authors, all seasoned faculty members at CoARC-accredited Respiratory Therapy programs, to focus on the clinical application of critical care in a wide variety of contexts. Procedure, pharmacotherapy, life support, and medical and traumatic critical care issues are all addressed in-depth in dedicated chapters—content you won’t find in any other single source—and case studies illustrate each concept with empirical evidence.
As a brand new resource, Respiratory Critical Care boasts a uniquely up-to-date perspective. The authors apply their practiced expertise to discussions of current trends and recent innovations to present a compendium unrivaled in the field. By integrating assessment, theory, and practice, they have created an excellent tool to prepare for both the NBRC Adult Critical Care exam and growth in the career that follows.
