About this book

Noninvasive mechanical ventilation is an effective technique for the management of patients with acute or chronic respiratory failure due to a variety of disorders. This comprehensive and up-to-date book explores all aspects of the subject. The opening sections are devoted to theory and equipment, with detailed attention to the use of full-face masks or helmets, the range of available ventilators, and patient-ventilator interactions. Clinical applications are then considered in depth in a series of chapters that address the use of noninvasive mechanical ventilation in chronic settings and in critical care, both within and outside of intensive care units. Due attention is also paid to weaning from conventional mechanical ventilation, potential complications, intraoperative applications, and staff training. The closing chapters examine uses of noninvasive mechanical ventilation in neonatal and pediatric care. This book, written by internationally recognized experts, will be an invaluable guide for both clinicians and researchers.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This is a multiauthored review of noninvasive ventilation for acute and chronic respiratory failure. … Senior trainees and practitioners in pulmonary and critical care medicine are an appropriate audience for this work … . Chapters are clearly written and tables with complementary data reproduce well … . Each chapter includes key recommendations and a reference list from primary literature dating to within two years of publication. This is an excellent review of recent developments in respiratory care based on this therapy.” (David J. Dries, Doody’s Review Service, February, 2011)
