ebk00022013 New Horizons Symposium: The Scientific Basis for Respiratory Care   – $2.99
This e-book in the Best of RESPIRATORY CARE contains a series of papers that look at the scientific basis of respiratory care. Evidence-based medicine (EBM) is the integration of individual clinical expertise with the best available research evidence from systematic research and the patient’s values and expectations. Although all tenets of EBM are not universally accepted, the principles of EBM nonetheless provide a valuable approach to respiratory care practice.
