Respiratory conditions are a leading cause of death and disability and account for a massive proportion of hospital admissions. This comprehensive text provides a detailed overview and discussion of respiratory care, with chapters on assessment, investigations, treatments and a wide range of conditions, as well as anatomy and physiology. Taking an inter-professional and patient-focused approach, Respiratory Care is evidence-based and linked to key practice guidelines to enable postgraduate students and professionals to provide the most effective care. Each chapter includes learning outcomes and makes use of case studies to provide an explicit and practical application of the topic to patient care. Respiratory Care is essential reading for all nurses and healthcare professionals in respiratory care in hospital or community settings. Vanessa Gibson is a Teaching Fellow, and Learning and Teaching Lead at the Department of Healthcare at Northumbria University, UK. David Waters is Head of Academic Department, Faculty of Society and Health, Buckinghamshire New University, UK.
