THE account of the use of mechanical ventilation in critically
A Doody's Core Title for 2011
4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW
"This second edition continues the role established by its
predecessor as the leading work in the field. Mechanical
ventilation, as a defining event of critical care, has seen an
explosion of physiologic and outcomes research in the past decade.
Our thinking about management of ARDS, ventilator-induced lung
injury, patient-ventilator interaction, and infectious
complications has changed dramatically. All of this recent work is
summarized here."--"Doody's Review Service"
Editor Martin J. Tobin--past editor-in-chief of the "American
Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine"--has completely
revised this text, acclaimed by "The Lancet" as "the bible of
mechanical ventilation." The new edition is a cover-to-cover
revision of the original content, filled with cutting-edge
scientific insights from more than 200 contributors representing
critical care, pulmonary medicine, anesthesiology, surgery, basic
science, and radiology.
Features: Up-to-the minute, rigorous coverage that addresses
every important scientific, clinical, and technical aspect of the
field70 well-organized chapters that encompass the full scope of
mechanical ventilation, including the physical basis of mechanical
ventilation; conventional, alternative, noninvasive, and
unconventional methods of ventilator support; complications and
airway management; and ethics and economics24 new chapters on
current issues in mechanical ventilation: Closed Loop Ventilation,
Inhaled Antibiotic Therapy, Sleep and Speech in the Ventilated
Patient, Mechanical Ventilation in ARDS, Ventilation Outside the
ICU, and moreHighly relevant new chapters on pharmacological and
adjuvant therapyGreater use of tables and lists that conveniently
summarize key information and solidify chapter concepts
