This is our second set of case studies related to pulmonary problems solving and care. Each case presents patient history, test results and some vital signs. Auscultation skills are used as part of most of the cases as well as the assessment of the patient's blood pressure. These cases challenge each student's ability to solve diagnostic and therapeutic issues based upon knowledge and patient assessment skills.
Recommended for nurses, respiratory therapists and medical students.
