    “I like the approach of this book.  By focusing on principles of patient care, the authors have made the equipment being discussed more relevant to the student as they proceed through clinical education.  I believe this approach will foster the critical thinking skills that are so vital for the successful respiratory therapist to possess.” - Michael Murphy, BA, RRT, EMT-P, Clinical Instructor, University of Hartford
