The Workbook for Egans Fundamentals of Respiratory Care is designed to help the user focus on the most important information in Egans. It challenges students to answer three questions about the content: what do I need to know, why do I need to know it, and how will I use it? The author breaks down complex information to the essentials and presents it in an approachable manner though the use of humor, real life examples, and a wide range of activities. Activities include matching, fill-in-the-blank, crossword puzzles, short answers, case studies, NBRC-style multiple-choice questions, and internet activities, to name a few.
