This book situates learning in a clinical context to help students adopt thinking patterns that practicing healthcare professionals use. Learning in context gives students of respiratory therapy and related health professions a particularly relevant foundation for clinical practice. Explanations of physiological mechanisms underlying the benefits of common therapeutic, diagnostic, and monitoring procedures are unique to this text. This kind of knowledge is essential to the clinician in developing a rational plan of care. This book is for respiratory therapists and other health professionals involved in cardiac and respiratory care.

Respiratory Therapy ProgramReview:
This second edition is a must have. It is well written and the author goes to great lengths to present traditionally difficult material in easy to understand concepts. This book is highly recommended and would be a valued resource in any medical or college/university library.
Susan A Trombley, AAS, RRT, Doody Review Service
I found the author’s writing style succinct and easy to read. I think this textbook should be useful adjunct for students in reparatory therapy programs that use problem-based learning, and for clinicians interested in learning more about the physiologic basis of respiratory care.
