I asked my students to carefully compare our current text and Hess side-by-side, and my students' vote was in favor of Hess. I have now adopted Hess for my respiratory courses. I am very pleased to see a chapter on clinical-decision-making; this is a key important feature. Also, the quality of the illustrations and photographs are fantastic!" ~ Michael Chaney, Cincinnati State Technical and Community College. Seller Inventory # AAZ9780763760038
