Instructors Praise This Approach Focusing on the principles of the equipment and then concluding with in-depth discussion and practical solutions to complex problems, this focus on the clinical application of patient care enhances key critical thinking skills with clear explanations of the features of the equipment as well as the way it functions. Reviewers said... “I like the approach of this book. By focusing on principles of patient care, the authors have made the equipment being discussed more relevant to the student as they proceed through clinical education. I believe this approach will foster the critical thinking skills that are so vital for the successful respiratory therapist to possess.” “Due to the ever changing look of equipment this is a great approach. If you know the principle behind the equipment you can work any of them.” “The authors have done well with their goal to focus on principles. The reading is simple and easy to understand without leaving out key components necessary to explain the features of the equipment as well as the way it functions.”
