Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Steven K. Hamick, BIS, RCP, RRT (William Beaumont Hospitals)
Description: This new book details the specifics of medications respiratory therapists will administer or will encounter while caring for their patients.
Purpose: It recognizes that respiratory therapists work in an array of patient care settings and administer a variety of prescription medications for different disease processes. The book notes that both cardiac and respiratory diseases are often interconnected, so discussing them together is vital in understanding patient treatment regimens.
Audience: It is written for respiratory care students and also serves as a reference for respiratory therapists.
Features: The book covers anatomical structure/function, cardiopulmonary disorders, fundamentals of pharmacology, patient education, routes of drug administration, calculations, and various pharmacologic therapies for disease processes — including antibiotic therapy. Each of the 22 chapters contains an outline, objectives, key terms, and an introduction. The text flows well with color figures/images, tables, and "Point to Remember" boxes to illustrate key concepts. Each chapter ends with a summary, learning goals, critical thinking questions, website links for further reading, review questions, and a case study. The end of the book contains appendixes for 100 commonly prescribed medications for cardiopulmonary care, commonly confused drug names, reporting medical errors, answer keys to chapter review questions, and a well-done glossary and index.
Assessment: This is an outstanding book for respiratory care students and will serve as a valuable resource for respiratory therapists as well.
