The field of respiratory care continues to change and grow. New research, therapies, and theories are continually emerging. FOUNDATIONS OF RESPIRATORY CARE, SECOND EDITION is written by leading authorities who have hands on, practical knowledge of the latest innovations and applications for care. Chapters cover timely topics such as the increasing population of elderly patients and the need for managing mass casualty incidents and disasters. Difficult topic areas such as interpretation of ventilator graphics, pharmacology, and hemodynamics are presented in a manner that allows for ease of comprehension and application of the concepts. The education of respiratory therapists is moving toward a problem-based learning model. FOUNDATIONS OF RESPIRATORY CARE, SECOND EDITION captures that model through the integration of case studies throughout the reading to reinforce and fine tune problem solving and decision-making skills. The most current AARC clinical practice guidelines are referenced throughout to once again help bridge that gap between classroom and real world application of concepts.
