Overview

This book provides a comprehensive overview of respiratory physiology in the newborn, and of the mechanisms underlying respiratory failure in this age group. The authors describe in detail the techniques, both novel and well established, for effective ventilatory support. In presenting and evaluating the available treatment options, the authors consider not only clinical indications, modes of delivery and monitoring, but also complications and outcomes.
