Respiratory Care Exam Review is designed to provide students with a complete, hands-on review for both the Certified Respiratory Therapist (CRT) exam and both the written registry and clinical simulation portions of the Registered Respiratory Therapist (RRT) exam. The material is presented in a detailed outline format, and each chapter includes pretest and post-chapter questions. Pre-test questions and post-chapter study questions help students test their knowledge. Helpful boxes, such as Exam Note boxes, highlight special notes or instructions specific to either the entry level or advanced exam to help students use their study time more effectively. Includes two practice exams (one for entry level and one for advanced) in the back of the book with rationales for correct or incorrect answers. The accompanying CD-ROM features two additional practice exams, plus 10 clinical simulations, to give students another chance to practice with the NBRC format and familiarize themselves with the computerized exam format. The ten clinical simulations on the accompanying CD-ROM simulate those used on the NBRC Clinical Simulations to give students a chance to practice this difficult portion of the Registry Exam. Features new information on nitric oxide, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and positron emission tomography (PET). Includes revised discussions of tracheal stoma care, asthma classifications, and treatment protocols. Every chapter has been revised to reflect the latest NBRC Examination Matrix content outline.
