About the Product

Equipment For Respiratory Care is changing the paradigm of historic respiratory care equipment books. 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.


  • New Approach - Emphasis on clinical application rather than engineering technical detail to drive critical thinking

  • Helps students select the most appropriate equipment, determined by patient, need among similar technologies

  • Includes illustrations from the user’s point of view focus on how the operator needs to interact with the equipment

  • Follows AARC Clinical Practice Guidelines

  • Includes Navigate 2 Advantage Access - Each new print copy includes Navigate 2 Advantage Access that unlocks a complete eBook, Study Center, homework and Assessment Center, and a dashboard that reports actionable data.
