Neonatal Respiratory Care Handbook is a user-friendly, full-color resource illustrating the more common types of procedures that a respiratory therapist, new graduate or an experienced therapist would be expected to perform in the day-to-day operations of a specialized unit for children. This full-color reference is especially appropriate for respiratory students enrolled in a Neonatal/Pediatric class, particularly during their Neonatal and Pediatric rotation; Respiratory Educators and Residents within a pulmonary medicine residency; and Respiratory graduates orienting or completing their orientation in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) or Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU).
Neonatal Respiratory Care Handbook looks at the major categories of respiratory illnesses affecting patient populations and reviews the types of equipment appropriate to treat each disease entity. A helpful “how to” guide that therapists will refer to time and time again, this book is simple and straight forward with over 100 tables, photos, and illustrations to demonstrate key points and familiarize the therapist with key procedures and equipment.
