Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Paul J. Mathews, PhD, RRT (University of Kansas Medical Center)
Description: The authors have updated and expanded this work, adding four chapters, new diagrams, and eliminating outdated equipment.
Purpose: The stated purpose is to keep pace with the evolving and expanding advances in respiratory equipment technology. This task is admirably done.
Audience: This book is primarily designed for respiratory care practitioners and respiratory care students. It is also well suited for critical care nurses and anesthesia and critical care house staff. The level and depth of coverage may present a challenge to new students, but it reads well for those with a background in respiratory care or with the aid of a teacher/mentor.
Features: This book features a large number of tables, photos, and diagrams. These, with a few exceptions, are of good to excellent quality. Several photos are overly dark or so detailed as to be obscured. Disbursed throughout the book are "Troubleshooting Boxes" which identify potential problems, list probable causes, and present suggested solutions. A "self-study disk" which contains a test bank of 478 items and a results file accompanies the text.
Assessment: This is a well written and well conceived project. The authors show their expertise in the presentation of these materials. This is not to say that the book is perfect As an example, on page 1 of Chapter 1 in the glossary, the word insolution is used twice where the word should be insulation. However, very few additional errors were found. My assessment is that this is a very good book. It should be actively considered for adoption in respiratory care programs and included in departmental libraries.
Long K. Han
This is a comprehensive textbook of respiratory airway equipment, ventilators, and several types of monitoring equipment. The authors have produced a clearly written and detailed textbook that addresses the physiologic and mechanical concepts involved in respiratory care medicine. This book is an important contribution to the relatively small number of reference works in this area. Targeted toward all students and practitioners of respiratory care medicine, the book's depth of coverage of physiology and mechanical concepts lends itself well to all levels of medical training. The authors are well-published in their areas of expertise. The majority of the authors are respiratory therapists from major medical centers. This book has many illustrations, photographs, and tables that amplify key points in the text. The references are abundant. They are generally current and pertinent. Each chapter begins with a list of key words and objectives that help to focus the reader's attention on the content. The overall appearance of the book is excellent. A glossary of keywords provides concise, yet clear, definitions. This is an excellent book for all critical and respiratory care practitioners. Amply illustrated, the book is a comprehensive guide to the bewildering types of respiratory care equipment at the health professional's disposal. Its detailed coverage of ventilator properties makes it an essential part of any library.

Booknews
A book/disk package approaching material in a fashion similar to a peer-reviewed research paper, illustrated with b&w photos and diagrams. Emphasis is on principles of operation, application, clinical utility, and device limitations. This edition includes new material on bedside monitoring, gas movement, and ventilators, and adds troubleshooting boxes which list symptoms, causes, and remedies of commonly encountered problems in the use of respiratory care equipment. The accompanying disk contains some 400 review questions with explained answers. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
