Introduction

Welcome to Respiratory Cases Set #1. These cases will present patient history, test results, blood pressure cuff simulation, auscultation and vital signs. Each case is intended to test student diagnostic and theraputic problem solving abilities. Recommended for nurses, respiratory therapists and medical students.
