    Clinical Assessment In Respiratory Care

    Dr. Wilkins 'thinks outside the box.' Now in the 5th edition, he wrote the first edition when he couldn't find a comprehensive book on the market for his students. He recognized that they were capable of doing more than administering treatments prescribed by the physicians. He's a 'trend-setter.'

    Clinical Assessment In Respiratory Care

    I've followed Dr. Wilkins' career. A talented communicator who 'came up through the ranks,' Dr. Wilkins is always able to make the student understand. He began his work in teaching as a high school student working on anti-smoking programs.
