Overview

This book describes the use of inspiratory and expiratory muscle aids to prevent the pulmonary complications of lung disease and conditions with muscle weakness. It also describes treatment and rehabilitation interventions specific for patients with these conditions. This book is unique in presenting the use of entirely noninvasive management alternatives to eliminate respiratory morbidity and mortality and avoid the need to resort to tracheostomy for the majority of patients with lung or neuromuscular disease.

• Cost effectiveness of and patient preference for noninvasive ventilation methods are discussed
• Emphasis on quality-of-life issues
• Acute care and home care settings are addressed
• Illustrative case studies amplify the concepts presented
• Comprehensively addresses total care of the patient who needs noninvasive ventilation
• Best available book on the market for managing the patient with neuromuscular weakness
