Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Charles J. Vanderwarf, BS, RRT (Loyola University Medical Center)
Description: This is the fourth edition of a text originally published in 1977 that essentially covers all aspects of current respiratory care practice.
Purpose: The editors have updated one of the founding textbooks of respiratory care practice. The fourth edition has been revised with a focus on patient assessment and outcomes-based care.
Audience: The text is intended for students, practitioners, and managers involved in the delivery of respiratory care. The editors are respected leaders in this field.
Features: The book is divided into five sections with a total of 36 chapters. The first section has three chapters that review the history and current state of the respiratory care profession and suggest its future direction. Section two has two chapters that review the anatomy and physics involved in respiratory gas exchange. The seven chapters in section three are devoted to the skills needed for assessment of the cardio-respiratory system. Section four has 12 chapters that provide a thorough discussion of respiratory care modalities and equipment. Section five's 12 chapters review application of respiratory care techniques in age-specific and disease-specific categories. Each chapter is nicely outlined and lists the objectives the contributor intends for the reader. There are extensive illustrations, diagrams, and outlines throughout the text. Each chapter is appropriately referenced.
Assessment: This guide to clinical practice remains one of the essential reference texts for healthcare professionals with a primary interest in respiratory care. It is remarkably comprehensive, covering topics as diverse as hyperbaric oxygen therapy and ethical considerations in respiratory care, without slighting the basics. The fourth edition is successful in updating the text for the evolution that has occurred in respiratory care since the third edition was published in 1991.
