Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David H. Eubanks, EdD, RRT (American College of Chest Physicians)
Description: This is the second edition of a textbook directed toward readers who have little or no previous education in human anatomy and physiology of the cardiopulmonary system.
Purpose: It is intended to provide respiratory care students a comprehensive overview of the structure and function of the cardiopulmonary system in a clear and precise manner.
Audience: The proposed audience is respiratory care personnel, although I believe the book would be equally beneficial to nurses and prehospital care personnel (emergency medical technicians and paramedics). In addition, I believe that the book would be most beneficial as a primary text for every level of health care personnel and as a bridge text for students studying more advanced health care levels, such as the respiratory therapist or baccalaureate-degree nurse.
Features: The primary features of the book are its reasonable price; the manner in which the author explains difficult principles and theories in an accurate, yet understandable presentation for the beginning student; and the use of questions after each chapter.
Assessment: In discussing this book with school directors, I have discovered that they like the text for entry-level students. They shared my opinion that the learning objectives preceding each chapter are too basic and predominately direct the student's learning at the knowledge level with little or no challenge for comprehension at the synthesis or evaluation levels of the cognitive domain. The author's extensive use of figures and tables, minimal use of references, and basic explanations limit the book for studen ts at the entry level. This limitation, however, is also the primary strength of the book, because it enables entry-level students to grasp difficult concepts more easily than with other texts. I found the book to be accurate, and it would be a useful addition to a school's library or bookstore's inventory.
