Overview

With cutting-edge and clinically relevant information, MECHANICAL VENTILATION, 2nd Edition takes a practical, clinical approach to the principles and practice of mechanical ventilation. This informative resource explains mechanical ventilation decisions and procedures in real-world terms so information is easy to understand and apply. This thoroughly updated edition includes one new chapter, four completely updated chapters, and a wealth of new user-friendly features.

• Detailed, clinically focused coverage of the application of mechanical ventilation to the most common respiratory diseases, provides practical answers to real life problems.
• UNIQUE! Sections of chapters on Special Techniques and Future Therapies include information on the newest techniques for treating patients in respiratory distress.
• A separate appendix of case studies helps you apply what you’ve learned to realistic situations.
• Well-known and respected authors, Neil MacIntyre and Rich Branson, share their vast expertise and accurate, cutting-edge information.

• Chapter Objectives, Key Point Summaries, and Assessment Questions reinforce basic concepts from each chapter.
• New chapter on Unique Patient Populations highlights the mechanical ventilation issues of traumatic brain injury, neuromuscular disease, lung transplantation, burn injury, and perioperative patient populations.
• Expanded glossary includes relevant terminology and key terms to help you easily find unfamiliar terminology.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
The second edition of Mechanical Ventilation is an excellent introductory text for students of critical care, particularly respiratory therapists, critical care nurses who wish to expand their understanding of mechanical ventilation, and the busy academic provider who needs a quick reference on the fundamentals of mechanical ventilation for board review or from which to generate core teaching materials for trainees. Its greatest strengths are its choice of material, its figures and tables, and its concise, understandable reviews of complex technical aspects of mechanical ventilation, pulmonary physiology, and the potentially confusing literature on clinical applications. This book will become part of our core reading for residency training, and I highly recommended it.
