Prepare for success on respiratory therapy certification exams! Updated to reflect the 2009 National Board of Respiratory Care (NBRC) content outlines, this edition helps you review for both entry and advanced level certification exams. It covers every testable subject, providing content review, self-assessment questions, and study hints. A companion CD offers pre- and post-testing with realistic practice for the entry-level certification exam and the advanced-level Written Registry Exam (WRE) and Clinical Simulation Exam (CSE). Unique! Exam Hint boxes point out subjects that are frequently tested, helping you study, plan your time, and improve your test-taking skills.Self-study questions are included at the end of each chapter, accompanied by answers and rationales.Difficulty level codes (recall, application, and analysis) help you prepare for questions in the way that is most appropriate (e.g., memorization for recall or synthesis for analysis).NBRC content outline coding provides a code for each topic so you can be sure that you have covered every topic that might appear on the exam.CRT and RRT level codes speed your review by identifying the topics for the CRT exam, topics for the RRT, and topics for both.A companion CD-ROM includes practice tests so you can assess your understanding before and after you have reviewed, and lets you practice in the computerized exam format.All tests on CD include the same number of questions as the actual exams, with 160 questions for CRT review, 115 questions for the WRE, and 11 practice simulations for the CSE.The CD's question randomizing feature ensures that you never have to take the same practice test twice.Study mode on CD allows you to answer questions and get immediate feedback.Exam mode on CD lets you take a timed exam with feedback after the test is completed.Electronic test-saving allows you to save completed practice tests to your hard drive so you can measure your progress. One text now covers both the entry and advanced levels of Respiratory Therapists certification exams, so you need only one book to prepare for CRT and RRT certification.Updated content reflects the NBRC's new examination content outlines, so you get an accurate, current review.New coverage includes subject areas such as hemodynamic monitoring, ultrasound, and hyperinflation therapy.
