Reviewer: David H. Eubanks, EdD, RRT (American College of Chest Physicians)
Description: This is a comprehensive bridge text to help individuals integrate previous sources on pulmonary rehabilitation into a successful program. This book is unique because each of its four parts serves as a guide to help the program coordinator and team members to implement each phase of a rehabilitation program.
Purpose: The overall purpose is to provide a resource for instruction in how to implement a successful pulmonary rehabilitation program. Even though the materials are excellent, the book can only achieve its stated objectives after it has been used to develop and implement a program.
Audience: This book is directed at medical students, nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists, social workers, discharge planners, occupational therapists, psychologists, HMO administrators, dietitians, and other allied health personnel.
Features: Features include the looseleaf format, which is flexible and can be easily used by program planners, caregivers, and patients. Even though it is not stated by the author, this looseleaf format would be very conducive to updating materials in the future. Other features include useful charts, tables, and forms that are practical and applicable to utilization by rehabilitation personnel.
Assessment: This book is a practical manual for the development and implementation of a pulmonary rehabilitation program. It includes necessary forms for providers as well as the mechanisms of pulmonary disease and rehabilitation. The book is well organized and contains specific instructions on "how to" for the patient as well as the professional. It is a well written text that is highly recommended for care providers, hospital libraries, and academic medical centers.
