Overview

This outstanding new edition focuses on the management of patients who are receiving mechanical ventilatory support and provides clear discussion of mechanical ventilation and its application. The third edition has been completely reorganized from past editions to present the material in a more logical way, reflective of the mechanical ventilation unit in the respiratory curriculum. Content is divided into five sections covering basic concepts, patient monitoring, effects/complications of ventilation, patient management and specialized mechanical ventilation. This organization progresses from the basics to more advanced applications of mechanical ventilation. This edition includes several new student-oriented pedagogical features and a new art program with professional renderings of equipment and physiological principles.

* Covers all advancements in the field of mechanical ventilation, including liquid ventilation and high frequency ventilation making this the authoritative mechanical ventilation textbook and bench reference.
• Reviews history, basic terms, and concepts of mechanical ventilators.
