Overview

Non-Invasive Ventilation and Weaning: Principles and Practice provides up-to-date, authoritative, and comprehensive information from a prestigious range of worldwide key opinion leaders on different applications for non-invasive ventilation, and closely related techniques, both in the hospital and at home.

Chapters cover the use of non-invasive ventilation in acute and chronic respiratory failure, plus pediatric and other specialty applications. Sections are devoted to conditions including COPD, cardiac failure, and neuromuscular disase; in each case, there are detailed evaluations of current best practice regarding the science, diagnostics, and management of the condition. Concise summaries of each chapter, plus generous use of tables and illustrations, ensure the reader gains rapid access to the wealth of information presented.
