For respiratory care practitioners and students, Des Jardins (respiratory care, Parkland College) and Burton (medical affairs and medicine and anesthesiology, Kettering College of Medical Arts and Wright State U.) explain how to recognize and assess respiratory diseases and disorders in line with therapist-driven protocols. They describe how to systematically gather clinical data, formulate an assessment, make an objective evaluation, identify the desired outcome, implement respiratory care protocols, design a treatment plan, and document it, with the bulk of the chapters addressing common respiratory diseases, their anatomy, etiology, clinical manifestations, and management. This edition includes 15 added case studies, a focus on assessment and therapist-driven protocols, overview boxes, and questions.
