  • "Handbook of Respiratory Care seems intended as a reference book for the researcher, but I can see it as a useful reference tool for students and practicing clinicians too, as there are quite a lot of data not found in other handbooks.

    Most handbooks are focused on either adults or pediatrics, but usually not both. In the Handbook of Respiratory Care they provide you terms from the newborn to adults. This broadens the readership to make this book a great addition, from large medical centers to children-specific facilities."
