2.0 out of 5 stars Hard to find the information that I need in this book December 5, 2011
Verified Purchase
I am very diappointed in this book. I am a respiratory therapy student who just finished her PICU rotation at a major children's hospital. I bought this book with the hope that it would help me find the information that I need while at clinical. It probably has most of the information that I need, but I just can't find it. I confess that I am used to the tabs of the PDQ respiratory reference book, but I think that I could get used to the lack of tabs if there was just an adequate index.

Let's say that you want to look up intubation equipment sizes or suction catheter sizes. Not listed in the index, or the appendix. You have to find that information buried in the critical care section. But on the positive side, if you need to quickly get the low-down on Chantix (a smoking cessation drug), that IS listed in the index. Unfortunately, questions about Chantix never really came up in the PICU or the NICU.

Oddly, there is a section included on CPR in this book. Really? I think that if you're the type of person to buy a respiratory care reference book, you probably don't need to read the flow chart for CPR. There is a lot of good information about pediatric medications, though.

For the high price of $25, this book simply was not worth it to me.
