Summary

Respiratory therapy and nursing students will find this a concise, easy-to-read book that will help them learn the basic concepts and clinical techniques related to mechanical ventilation. The information is current and presented logically for easier understanding. Three new chapters cover important new information on temporary airways used for ventilation in non-traditional settings, ventilator waveforms that appear in computer graphics, and non-invasive positive pressure ventilation often used in home care settings.


Key features:

  • New chapter on Ventilator Waveform Analysis teaches students to understand the interaction of mechanical ventilation between the patient and equipment. Numerous examples of waveforms provide extensive coverage of various clinical conditions.
  • Fifteen case studies help promote understanding of the different uses of mechanical ventilation, and allow the reader to apply concepts learned to real-life scenarios.
  • Key points highlighted in the margin allow the reader to focus on essential concepts
  • NBRC-type questions enhance the development of critical thinking
