This book aims to fill knowledge gap among healthcare workers about Clostridium difficile (also known as C.difficile and CDI) among aging patients, especially those in long-term care facilities (LTCFs). Written by experts in infectious diseases and geriatric medicine, this book provides comprehensive information on all aspects of CDI pertaining to LTCF settings, including epidemiology, diagnosis, prevention, management and the unique challenges faced by LTCFs with regards to the CDI problem. The book begins by introducing the topic as it relates to aging patients before delving into the various aspects of CDI management. Topics include infection control and prevention, treatment of CDI, and the establishment of antibiotic stewardship programs to reduce inappropriate antibiotic use and reduce CDI rates. The book also features a chapter on probiotics for the prevention of CDI and new strategies to monitor environmental cleaning practices of CDI patient rooms that do not appear in any other resource. Clostridium Difficile Infection in Long-Term Care Facilities is an excellent resource for geriatricians, infectious diseases specialists, long-term care administrators, nurses, pharmacists, researchers, and all clinicians working with infections in long-term care settings.

Intensive care patients are the most critically ill in any hospital and they are a patient group that utilises a disproportionate amount of medical resources. Intensive care medicine, around for about 40 years, is a relatively recent but globally expanding specialty due to a growing geriartric population of discerning demand for health system. The older generation of intensivists are approaching retirement. The middle generation is trained in various medical specialties and then subspecialised in intensive care. These doctors now lead the way in clinical practice, research, management and training. On the other hand, the younger generation of intensivists includes an ever increasing number of doctors who, for the first time, enjoy a structured training program with clinical rotations, courses, and exam qualifications. Written by outstanding specialist practitioners who are also internationally acclaimed authors from the UK and North America, this is an authoritative guide to practical intensive care medicine. The clinical contents of the book share a practical and educational common thread with each chapter addressing pertinent clinical challenges comprehensively. This invaluable book is specially targeted at medical students, trainees in intensive care medicine and other acute specialties, consultants wishing to remain up to date on all branches of this vast specialty and other allied professionals practicing in intensive care including nurses and physiotherapists.

La crescita esponenziale dell'interesse per la ventilazione non invasiva (NIV) verificatasi negli ultimi 10-15 anni, non solo dal punto di vista clinico e applicativo, ma anche speculativo, ha pochi eguali nella recente storia della medicina.
In Italia e in Europa in generale tale metodica e applicata su larga scala, prevalentemente nei reparti di Pneumologia e nelle Unita di Cure Intermedie Respiratorie, mentre per quanto riguarda la sua applicazione nei reparti di Terapia Intensiva Generale (UTI) i dati emersi da uno studio multicentrico condotto nei paesi francofoni vedono la NIV impiegata in una quantita di casi che rappresenta fino al 50% dei pazienti che richiedono assistenza ventilatoria.
Il recente studio EUROVENT ha inoltre dimostrato come la NIV non si limiti alla sua applicazione "acuta," dal momento che circa 25.000 pazienti sono attualmente ventilati "in cronico" a domicilio. Inoltre, si calcola che milioni di cittadini europei soffrano attualmente di disturbi respiratori durante il sonno, e per molti di essi il trattamento medico di prima scelta e rappresentato dalla NIV. Questo libro si propone lo scopo di richiamare l'attenzione sulle piu recenti acquisizioni in questo campo, con la speranza di fornire uno strumento valido e maneggevole per la scelta e l'impostazione della migliore modalita di ventilazione.

This book is a practical and easily understandable guide for mechanical ventilation. With a focus on the basics, this text begins with a detailed account of the mechanisms of spontaneous breathing as a reference point to then describe how a ventilator actually works and how to effectively use it in practice. The text then details: the various modes of ventilation commonly used in clinical practice; patient-ventilator interactions and dyssynchrony; how to approach a patient on the ventilator with respiratory decompensation; the optimal ventilator management for common disease states like acute respiratory distress syndrome and obstructive lung disease; the process of ventilator weaning; and hemodynamic effects of mechanical ventilation. Written for medical students, residents, and practicing physicians in a variety of different specialties (including internal medicine, critical care, surgery and anesthesiology), this book will instruct readers on how to effectively manage a ventilator, as well as explain the underlying interactions between it and the critically ill patient.
