Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Steven K. Hamick, BIS, RCP, RRT (William Beaumont Hospitals)
Description: All aspects of theory and clinical practice have been revised to reflect current 21st century practice in this update of a comprehensive book on respiratory care. The previous edition was published in 2001.
Purpose: The book has been completely rewritten. As the practice of respiratory care has evolved significantly since the first edition, this revision is both welcome and needed.
Audience: According to the authors, the book is intended primarily for students and would be useful to others as a reference. In my opinion, the chapters devoted to clinical practice should be the standard of care given by every respiratory care practitioner. The authors are unquestionably experts.
Features: The book is divided into 62 chapters that begin with patient assessment and respiratory therapeutics and end with the professional aspects of respiratory care (critical thinking, ethics, reimbursement, etc). Each chapter begins with an outline, objectives, key terms, and introduction and ends with key points and suggested reading. Numerous images, drawings, figures, boxes, and tables throughout reinforce chapter concepts. The book includes a glossary as well as an index.
Assessment: This excellent book sets a new standard for comprehensive respiratory care textbooks. It is an outstanding book for respiratory care students as well as seasoned practitioners. It is hoped the authors will consider future editions as the profession of respiratory care evolves.
