Description:
For all students and clinicians assessing or caring for patients with cardiopulmonary disorders, Respiratory Care: Patient Assessment and Care Plan Development is a must-have resource. As the most comprehensive reference available, it is a guide to the evaluation of the patient, and the development and implementation of an appropriate, evidence-based, respiratory care plan. Respiratory Care: Patient Assessment and Care Plan Development describes the purpose of patient assessment and then guides the reader through the process of the reviewing existing data in the medical record, conducting the patient interview, performing the physical assessment, and finally evaluating the diagnostic studies needed and implementing a respiratory care plan. Bridging the gap between patient assessment and treatment, the reader will learn how to apply assessment skills to the development and implementation of respiratory care plans. Integrated throughout each chapter are Clinical Focus exercises, RC Insights!, and Key Points to help readers refine critical thinking and problem solving skills as well as strongly grasp important concepts.
