Details about Respiratory Care Exam Review 5th edition
Respiratory Care Exam Review 5th edition PDF free download – One of the most satisfying accomplishments that may be achieved by respiratory care practitioners is the successful completion of the Therapist Multiple-Choice (TMC) Examination and the Clinical Simulation Examination offered by the National Board for Respiratory Care (NBRC). The credential of Certified Respiratory Therapist (CRT) is awarded to individuals who score at or above the minimum passing level set by the NBRC on the 140-question TMC exam. (Actually the test is composed of 160 questions, but 20 of them do not count toward the final score.) The TMC exam has two passing levels. The minimum passing level earns the CRT credential. The higher passing score earns the CRT credential and grants eligibility to sit for the Clinical Simulation exam. The Clinical Simulation exam consists of 22 simulations, two of which do not count toward the final score. These simulations are half the length of those used on the exam in previous years. Successfully completing the Clinical Simulation exam earns the Registered Respiratory Therapist (RRT) credential. PREFACE This textbook and accompanying Evolve site with Evolve Exam Review contain more than 800 questions, both multiple-choice and open-ended questions. Each chapter begins with a pretest comprising 10 multiplechoice questions formatted like those found on the NBRC exams. After you complete the pretest, study the chapter and then answer the open-ended postchapter study questions. If you have to return to the chapter to find the answers to some of the questions, do not be discouraged. By going back through the chapter and recording your answers on the postchapter questions, you are reinforcing the information that will help you to retain the material. The answers to the pretest and postchapter questions are located at the back of the book. Evolve is an interactive learning environment designed to work in coordination with this text. Instructors may use Evolve to provide an Internet-based course component that reinforces and expands the concepts presented in class. For this book in particular, Evolve is a way for students to easily take practice tests to further simulate the NBRC credentialing examinations. Students have the opportunity to take time-structured tests that are just like the real thing or to test themselves in a more leisurely manner using study mode.
