Respiratory system and artificial ventilation are key topics when considering the main aspects of Anaesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine.
This book includes contributions by an international panel of authors. It collects valuable expertise to illustrate principles, and to study results and case experiences on respiratory physiopathology, respiratory mechanics, respiratory functions monitoring, artificial ventilation and diagnostic radiology in respiratory dysfunction failure.
This book reviews respiratory performance, selected mechanical ventilation modes, and treatment strategies… Fellows, other senior trainees, and practitioners managing critically ill patients with respiratory concerns are an appropriate audience for this work which comes from a multidisciplinary group of authors in Western Europe and a small number of presenters from the United States… Contemporary thinking is well represented in this collection of reviews on pulmonary physiology and selected clinical topics.
