Always in step with the ever-changing field of respiratory care, this easy-to-read new edition features five new chapters, as well as new information on online charting systems, patient databases, research databases, meaningful use, simulation, and an expanded discussion of the electronic medical record system. User-friendly full-color design calls attention to special features to enhance learning. Therapist-Driven Protocols TDPs used by RTs in hospitals to assess a patient, initiate care, and evaluate outcomes, are incorporated throughout the text to develop your critical thinking skills and teach the value of following an established protocol. Expert authorship from the leading figures in respiratory care ensures that critical content is covered thoroughly and accurately. Mini Clinis give you an opportunity to apply text content to actual patient care through short, critical-thinking case scenarios. Rules of Thumb highlight rules, formulas, and key points that are important to clinical practice.

Egan's fundamentals of respiratory care
In traditional physical terms, how is work defined? Which of the following formulas is used to compute the mechanical work of breathing? Why is the total mechanical work of breathing difficult to assess during spontaneous breathing? Most volunteer subjects cannot understand the procedure used. Respiratory muscle activity contributes to inflation resistance.
