Corresponding to the chapters in Pilbeam's Mechanical Ventilation, 6th Edition, this workbook helps readers focus their study on the most important information and prepare for the NBRC certification exam. A wide range of exercises includes crossword puzzles, critical thinking questions, NBRC-style multiple-choice questions, case studies, waveform analysis, ventilation data analysis, and fill-in-the-blank and short-answer activities.

Key Features:
  • Close correlation with the Pilbeam's main text supports learning from the textbook.
  • Wide variety of learning exercises - including crossword puzzles, NBRC-style questions, case study exercises, waveform analysis, ventilation date analyses, and numerous question formats - helps readers assess their knowledge and practice areas of weakness.
  • Critical Thinking questions ask readers to solve problems relating to real-life scenarios that may be encountered in practice.
New to this Edition:
  • NEW! Answer key now appears at the end of the workbook
  • NEW! Graphic exercises appendix from the text is now located in the workbook for convenient access.
