Description: A truly international work consisting of select contributions from authorities at the forefront of research and practice in mechanical ventilation, this quintessential resource defines the implementation of optimal management procedures for patients requiring respiratory assistance�heightening appreciation of the ventilator's significance in advanced life support while cautioning of potentially detrimental outcomes related to its improper or protracted use.
Advancing the continually evolving understanding of this clinically vital area, Physiological Basis of Ventilatory Support explores underlying physiological and pathophysiological mechanisms elaborates on the intricacies involved in decision making due to the heterogeneity of diseases, extreme variations in patient physiology and response, and complexity of ventilator modes describes the consequences of employing, as well as state-of-the-art methodology for implementing, mechanical ventilation details commonly encountered problems resulting from ventilatory use, including infection, barotrauma, hemodynamic compromise, and lung injury and more!
Packed with well over 5500 references, tables, equations, drawings, and photographs, and elaborately indexed for ready access to information, there is no better hands-on guide for pulmonologists, physiologists, anesthesiologists, intensivists, respiratory therapists, nurses, critical care specialists, and graduate and medical school students involved in the teaching, investigation, or provision of ventilatory support.
