Book Description

A handbook on adult mechanical ventilation based on practical applications and clinical experience

This dependable book, Essentials of Mechanical Ventilation; 3rd edition (PDF), was created from the point of view of authors who have more than 75 years of experience working as educators, doctors, authors, and researchers combined. This ebook is one of a kind because it has chapters that are well-organized, succinct, and applicable. This resource, in contrast to the others that have been compiled on the subject, focuses on mechanical ventilation rather than mechanical ventilators. It is prepared in such a way as to provide a strong understanding of the general principles and important foundational knowledge of mechanical ventilation, both of which are required for respiratory therapists and physicians who specialize in critical care. In order to make it more applicable to clinical practice, Essentials of Mechanical Ventilation incorporates disease-specific chapters that cover topics related to mechanical ventilation in the context of these illnesses.

The 3rd edition of Essentials of Mechanical Ventilation is divided into 4 parts:

Part 1; Principles of Mechanical Ventilation describes basic principles of mechanical ventilation and then continues with issues such as indications for mechanical ventilation; appropriate physiologic goals; and ventilator liberation.

Part 2; Ventilator Management; gives practical advice for ventilating patients with a variety of diseases.

Part 3; Monitoring During Mechanical Ventilation; discusses blood gases; mechanics; hemodynamics; and waveforms.

Part 4; Topics in Mechanical Ventilation; covers issues such as aerosol delivery; airway management; and extracorporeal life support.

Essentials of Mechanical Ventilation, Third Edition is an absolute “must read” for all clinicians who are responsible for the care of patients who are manually ventilated.
