Overview

Simplifying complex information, this workbook focuses on the most important concepts in Egan's Fundamentals of Respiratory Care, 9th Edition. It makes learning easy by using real-life examples, humor, and a wide range of activities. By highlighting key points, it helps you answer three basic questions: What do I need to know? Why do I need to know it? How will I use it?

• An understandable and engaging approach breaks down essential information into manageable chunks.
• Chapter overviews introduce topics and explain how and why each applies to the practice of respiratory care.
• A review of chapter objectives ensures that you understand the primary concepts from the text.
• NBRC-style review questions help you prepare for the CRT and the written portion of the RRT exam.
• Vocabulary review exercises include matching, fill-in-the-blank exercises and crossword puzzles to test your mastery of key terms and acronyms.
• Case studies ask you to apply concepts to the real world.
• Critical-thinking questions ask you to analyze potential rewards and pitfalls in applying your knowledge to a clinical environment.
• Web links are suggested for further research and study.
• Answers to all questions/activities, with references to the textbook and rationales, are included on Evolve Student Resources.

Follows the text to reinforce major concepts and ensure optimum learning of respiratory principles. Clearly written and organized to keep students' attention and increase learning. Questions, review and highlights incorporate the three areas tested on the NBRC exam - recall, analysis, and application - to help students identify important information that goes beyond memorization and recall. Activities include: Vocabulary review - matching, fill-in-the-blank exercises, and crossword puzzles. Reviews of chapter objectives check understanding of primary concepts.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer:Steven K. Hamick, BIS, RRT, AE-C(William Beaumont Hospitals)
Description:In its 40th year, the revised ninth edition of this book is considered by many to be the authoritative text in the field of respiratory care. Last updated in 2003, this edition continues the tradition of defining the profession of respiratory care by providing the requisite information for students and serving as a valued resource for practitioners.
Purpose:This book provides the education foundation for respiratory therapy students in training, yet serves as a treasured reference for practitioners.
Audience:It is uniquely written for both respiratory care students and practitioners. The authors, unquestionably, are experts in their fields of expertise.
Features:This edition contains an unprecedented 51 chapters in seven sections. Each chapter begins with objectives, an outline, and key terms and ends with references. Four-color images, tables, "Rule of Thumb" notations, "Mini Clini" case studies, and key points reinforce learning concepts throughout the book. Four appendixes covering temperature corrections, STPD to BTPS and STPS to STPD conversions, normal values for vitals, blood gas parameters, hematology, blood chemistry, hemodynamics, and pulmonary function are supplemented by additional information (common medical abbreviations, equations, etc.) on the inside covers. The book ends with an excellent glossary and index.
Assessment:More than just a textbook for students, this ninth edition defines the standards of practice in respiratory care and serves as an invaluable resource, particularly for hospital-basedpractitioners. Given the continuous advances in medicine and their impact on respiratory care, it is hoped the authors will continue to revise this book to educate and reinforce practice standards.
