Summary

Thoroughly revised and updated, CLINICAL ASSESSMENT IN RESPIRATORY CARE teaches assessment techniques from the most basic skills for the student learning the process of patient care, to the more advanced skills for the student or practitioner involved with patients in the intensive care unit. An entirely new section will teach students and practitioners the skills necessary to record patient cases. The Instructor's Manual/Test Bank allows instructors to customize their approach to assessment and includes a ready-made selection of test questions.
