This product was purchased to supplement the online clinical manual by Ruth Buzbee. It was perfect for this purpose. I like the simple way the text reads and is not hard for the students to understand.
I am an RT student and this was one of our required texts. We were the first class to have this book inflicted on us. Numerous mistakes have been found, by the students! Some of the answers to the review questions at the end of each chapter are nowhere to be found. We are all having a book burning party at the end of the semester. (That is not a joke) Please do not subject yourself to this book! Egans rules!
