Donald F. Egan, MD, the original author of Egan’s Fundamentals of Respiratory Care, sought to provide a foundation of knowledge for respiratory therapy students learning the practice in 1969. However, the scope of the respiratory care profession is ever-expanding, and the skills and information needed to be an effective respiratory therapist have expanded with it. With improved technology and vast scientific and medical advances, the body of knowledge required for respiratory therapists has increased greatly since the first edition of the text was published.
