Good guide for those with no respiratory knowledge. Doesn't really have anything outside of what you should know off the top of your head. Mostly filled with things you shouldn't have to reference. Some useful information (that you can flip to quickly) about respiratory medications if you can't think of it right away. Also has some diseases listed that I wasn't necessarily knowledgable about, because they aren't too common. Had some old information too. But ok as a quick reference if you can't retain the basics.
