Neonatal and Pediatric Respiratory Care 4th Edition PDF Free Download
All roles that encompass the respiratory care of children require an individual who remains current with the changing face of this profession. The proliferation of new surgical interventions, discoveries in applied translational and clinical research, devices and mechanical ventilator technologies, and strategies that are currently being implemented into practice require dynamic, self-driven clinicians, and lifelong learners who are dedicated to providing the highest quality care possible. Increases in premature and multiple births, as well as paradigm shifts in strategies focused at reducing hospital costs and health care spending, have led to the growth and development of many neonatal special care or intensive care units across the nation. RTs working outside of free-standing children’s and university hospitals, many of whom have typically cared for adults, are now often called to support newborns at high-risk deliveries or to manage pediatric patients in respiratory distress. With advance practice roles becoming the norm, practitioners are faced with more challenging decisions that require collaboration, teamwork, and sharp critical thinking skills. These attributes, coupled with a better understanding of evidence-based practice and technologically advanced equipment, will positively affect patient outcomes and raise future ethical debates. We believe that Neonatal and Pediatric Respiratory Care, fourth edition, will provide you with the tools and knowledge to improve the respiratory care of neonates, infants, and children regardless of your education, experience, or the environment in which you work.
