Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Beth Ginsburg, MD (Rush Medical College of Rush University)
Description: This book describes the various invasive and noninvasive monitoring techniques, including principles of engineering of equipment to application in intensive care and respiratory care settings. The book describes theory, the laboratory, and the bedside and then integrates these different components.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a detailed background of respiratory care monitoring techniques, including physics, theory, and practical application. It is meant to be a comprehensive reference source, and it describes application and technique of both invasive and noninvasive procedures.
Audience: This book is aimed at pulmonary medicine practitioners, including nurses, physicians, and respiratory therapists. It may also be used by students, though it may be too technical, but it is very descriptive and may be used through different levels of training.
Features: The book is divided into four main sections: an overview of engineering principles, invasive monitoring techniques, noninvasive monitoring techniques, and an integration of these three into the clinical setting. Each chapter has numerous diagrams that are clear, but some of the descriptions could have more elaborate. All of the chapters are well referenced with classic articles and recent literature, but some of the references are outdated. An appendix with charts and definitions would be a nice addition to this book, especially because it will be used by many as a reference text. The pictures did not reproduce as clearly as expected. The table of contents is clear and makes it easy to look up a subject without necessarily having to scan the index.
Assessment: The book is a concise reference of various monitoring techniques in the intensive care and respiratory care setting. It will be a nice resource to have on hand in these various units. It can be used by a variety of people. Depending on their level of training, it may be easier for some people to read. It is very well referenced and further reading on the subject matter can be undertaken with ease. The book is recommended for personal purchase as well as by medical libraries and bookstores.
