I think this book is great at what it does and is well suited to those in clinical practice who are faced with having to be on call (infrequently enough to be uncomfortable doing it).

As a student I think is a good investment for further practice and of use on respiratory and other related placements to help aid understanding of the patients you'll see.

This book is a great improvement for students on the previous edition: Emergency Physiotherapy.

Now with colour, half the size (and thus now actually able to fit in a tunic pocket!) and clear and concise, this book is much easier to navigate and read.

Chapters on respiratory assessment, chest x-ray interpretation and typical respiratory problems management give a clear grounding in basic respiratory skills. Additional `on-call' chapters and case studies based around patients found in a variety of different areas (neurology, paeds, oncology etc.) give more specific information on what to expect and methods of management.

This book applies just as much to qualified physios as students on their first respiratory placement. A must have for anyone navigating the complexity of respiratory physiotherapy. I'll certainly be keeping mine in my pocket!

Although aimed primarily at newly qualified physiotherapists to help prepare for being on-call for the first time, this should also prove to be invaluable for students. I'm in my second year and this book's going to be great helping me revise and get ready for my exams. And since it is pocket size and easy to carry, I'm definitely taking it with me on my respiratory placement this summer.

It includes points to consider when assessing both adults and children, plus clinical signs and treatment ideas for a range of conditions, all set out in clear tables. There are some helpful pictures, including a good selection of photos to help with chest x-ray interpretation. Case studies are easy to find at the back, so you can practise, along with tables of normal ranges.

For those on-call, the book includes individual chapters on different specialties including ICU, neonatal, oncology and cardiothoracic.

Overall, I would say it's definitely worth considering investing in this book, especially if you are newly-qualified.

This is a really good book. The order is logical and covers the basics of everything you need to know. The book is a bit big to go into your pocket to take on clinical placement but a good concise overview of respiratory in a clinical setting to brose through on your lunch or to prepare for your respiratory physiotherapy placement.

Format: Paperback
Looking at this book from the perspective of a 2nd year physiotherapy student, I think it will prove to be an invaluable addition to my collection of pocketbooks. It's already proving useful with revision of core respiratory knowledge for my exams.

The layout is clear and easy to follow and navigate, with chapters including preparation for being on-call, assessment, interpretation of x-rays and management of respiratory problems. It also includes specifics on specialist areas such as neonatal, paediatrics and neurological patients.

The diagrams, case-studies and inclusion of normal values make it user-friendly.

I feel that this is a great book for any physiotherapist inexperienced in the respiratory speciality as it is an excellent starting point covering much of the basic physiotherapy management. It also provides further reading suggestions for anyone wishing to further their knowledge.

Definitely a thumbs up from me.

Extremely good book to have besides your bed when you on-call. Pocket size means you can also take it with you if needed. Content set out well with individual sections for different aspects, such as been called out to ICU or been called out to peadiatrics.

I am a year 3 physiotherapy student. This book is a useful resource for looking thing up in your breaks. Has everything you need for many different situations. I'm sure I'll use it once I'm qualified for those little moments!
Plus it has a wipe clean cover and fits nicely in your tunic pocket/is easily hidden in the office drawers away from the mysterious hospital pixies.

Excellent book! Excellent service!

I bought this book to revise before job interviews for physio. Not only I'm not scared of respiratory area of physio which always seemed like a different profession but was able to answer every respiratory question they asked.

Highly recommended!!!
