An Excellent Suppliement for Students and Respiratory Therapists Alike!
Green's Respiratory Therapy

I don't typically don't publically post reviews of a lot of products and material, but this one I simply can't pass up. Robert Green's book, titled "Green's Respratory Therapy: A Practical and Essential Tutorial of the Core Concepts of Respiratory Care" is, hands down, one of the BEST supplements to Respiratory Care education that I have ever come accross in my long and fairly successful career. If you are a student of Respiratory Care, or even a credentialed Respiratory Therapist looking to "tune up" your already vast world of knowledge, then this IS the supplement for you! I promise you, this is well worth looking in to.
