There are myriad reasons for impaired breathing, both acute and chronic. And it’s respiratory therapists that patients rely on for a better quality of life and quicker recovery. Given the importance of this vocation, there are many vigorous examinations and certifications in place to train healthcare professionals adequately...but no study tools to help them study for these assessments.
Brainscape has over 500 web and mobile flashcards aligned to the content in JBL's Comprehensive Respiratory Therapy Exam Preparation Guide, Third Edition -- by Craig L. Scanlan and Albert J. Heuer.
What this means is: your studying has just become a whole lot easier!
If you’re taking a Respiratory Therapy exam in the near future, you've come to the right place! Brainscape has proudly partnered with Jones & Bartlett Learning to produce a comprehensive set of adaptive digital flashcards aligned to their Comprehensive Respiratory Therapy Exam Preparation Guide: Third Edition.
This online and mobile resource was created by the original guide's authors, Craig Scanlan and Albert Heuer, along with JBL's team of content experts and editors. The content has been organized in a way that is especially compatible with Brainscape's scientifically optimized learning system.
Brainscape PERSONALIZES the timing of each flashcard repetition, using proven cognitive science. Unlike clunky traditional flashcards and other boring eLearning software, Brainscape's proprietary learning algorithm called Confidence-Based repetition (CBR) spaces the repetition of each bite-sized concept based on how well you know each one.
The brain is hardwired to learn and remember information a certain way. The Brainscape™ flashcard app was born out of the question: what if we leveraged this hardwiring to help students learn more efficiently? Fueled by curiosity, our team of cognitive scientists from Columbia and Yale spent years developing a scientifically optimized learning platform to boost your learning.
Our"secret sauce" is a learning algorithm that delivers information to your brain in a way that optimizes its ability to retain that information. And it’s the spaced repetition of content at precisely the right interval for YOUR brain that makes Brainscape so effective for remembering the facts.
