Editorial Reviews

‘This is a portable book and so can be used by the beginning practitioner. The case studies are most helpful in illustrating the nurse's ability to impact the care of the pulmonary patient. The book's goal of providing evidence-based practice for caring for patients with pulmonary disease is met with the inclusion of additional resources and citations.’ Elizabeth McNamara-Aslin, RN, and Douglas Aslin, RRT, Respiratory Care, May 2007
