This edition has expanded calculations, including cerebral perfusion pressure, MDI/DPI dosage, and pressure support ventilation setting; a new section on ventilator waveforms with illustrations for normal waveforms and abnormal waveforms resulting from changing patient/ventilator conditions; enhanced appendices with information on topics like anatomical values of children and adults, basal metabolic rate, normal laboratory reference values, croup score, sedation scales, and pitting edema scale; expanded exercises and examples; and updated self-assessment questions to reflect the exam format of the National Board for Respiratory Care.
