In the 1990s, the Respiratory Nursing Society determined that a Core Curriculum needed to be established. This book provides the basis and direction for clinicians who give direct clinical care, creates a foundation for development of staff education and curricula development, serves as a resource for evaluation of respiratory nursing practice, and provides the basis for development of a certification process. It includes relevant information ranging from common respiratory diseases and pediatric-specific disorders to therapeutic modalities and even legal and ethical issues.
