Overview

Summarizing state-of-the-art developments in long-term mechanical ventilation use, this comprehensive treatise reviews the applications, complications, and care of breathing disorders affecting the growing population of ventilation-assisted individuals-including neuromuscular and chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases (COPD) and chest wall deformities.
Qualitatively considers reimbursement options for management outside of acute care settings!
Covering both noninvasive ventilation (NIV) and invasive ventilation techniques and procedures, Long-Term Mechanical Ventilation

  • provides an epidemiology of long-term mechanical ventilation with a review of recent trends
  • examines the pathophysiological mechanisms contributing to chronic respiratory failure, including the pathogenesis and treatment of restrictive thoracic and central hypoventilatory disorders
  • investigates the controversy over conflicting results for NIV management of patients with chronic respiratory failure due to severe stable COPD
  • details critical care for children with severe ventilatory defects such as congenital neuromuscular diseases, cystic fibrosis, and bronchopulmonary dysplasia
  • chronicles new insights into the role of the upper airway and glottis in determining the effectiveness of NIV
  • considers weaning dependent patients off ventilation and methods of care for different sites using the least complicated and most economical means
  • explores tools for measuring the impact and outcomes of long-term mechanical ventilation and determining patients' quality of life
  • and more!
    Containing over 1400 literature references, tables, drawings, and photographs, Long-Term Mechanical Ventilation is a necessary reference for pulmonary and thoracic specialists, chest physicians, anesthesiologists, physiologists, physiatrists and rehabilitation physicians, respiratory therapists, intensive care specialists, and medical school and graduate school students in these disciplines.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

This book reviews the applications, complications, and care of breathing disorders that affect the growing population of ventilation-assisted individuals. This includes patients with neuromuscular and chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases (COPD) and chest wall deformities. Reimbursement options for management outside of acute care settings are considered.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Loutfi S. Aboussouan, MD, FCCP (Wayne State University)
Description: This is a superb and timely reference book on long-term mechanical ventilation, approaching the topic from clinical, ethical, and reimbursement angles.
Purpose: The book provides a comprehensive and up-to-date reference on pathophysiology, clinical management, and reimbursement practices for long-term mechanical ventilation. These goals are largely met.
Audience: Although the intended audience is clinicians and reimbursement specialists, the interested audience could readily be expanded to include pulmonologists or intensivists, respiratory therapists, neurologists, and nursing and rehabilitation specialists. Recognized authorities assembled from several countries contributed to this work.
Features: The topic is addressed from several angles, including epidemiology, pathophysiology, management issues related to the application of long-term ventilation in children or in patients with specific diseases, rehabilitation, and long-term outcome. An interesting and useful feature is the author index encompassing all authors cited in the references. Shortcomings are minor and include incomplete references in one chapter. Also lacking is a short discussion on ethical considerations from the perspective of the patients, caregivers, and physicians. Such a discussion would be important to assist in preliminary discussions with patients with progressive neuromuscular diseases expected to lead to ventilatory failure.
Assessment: This book will occupy a prominent place on the shelf of any interested reader. The wide coverage of the topic is likely to make it a frequently consulted reference. It differs from other books on mechanical ventilation in its special emphasis on the long-term perspective and its coverage of noninvasive ventilation options. A marked increase in the number of patients requiring such interventions, coupled with significant questions regarding the management and disposition of such patients, make this a much needed and timely book. Throughout the book equal emphasis is placed on noninvasive positive pressure ventilation, highlighting this technique's increasing role in long-term ventilation.

Booknews
Researchers from North America and Europe provide clinicians, reimbursement specialists, and other professionals a reference to the current knowledge about providing a patient mechanical ventilation for more than six hours a day for over 21 days, whether for an operation on the lungs, to recover from acute respiratory failure, or during the last stages before terminal respiratory failure. They discuss such matters as the epidemiology of long-term ventilatory assistance, sites of care, the pathogenesis of chronic respiratory failure and the effects of long-term mechanical ventilation on respiratory muscle function, the effects of nocturnal mechanical ventilation on sleep quality and the control of breathing, the upper airway, restrictive thoracic disorders, infants and children, managing and monitoring invasive and non-invasive procedures, converting from invasive to non- invasive, using respiratory muscle aids in the prevention of respiratory failure, costs and reimbursement issues, and rehabilitation.
