Part of the Human Organ Systems series, Respiratory: An Integrated Approach skillfully bridges the gap between the science and practice of medicine. This beautifully illustrated book seamlessly integrates the core elements of cell biology, anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, and pathology with clinical medicine. It is the perfect companion for medical students transitioning to their clinical years, as well as for practicing physicians who need a user-friendly update on the basic science underlying the practice of clinical medicine.
Features and highlights include:Detailed learning objectives clearly state learning goals Key concepts are emphasized in every chapter The latest developments in the field are incorporated throughout the text Numerous high-quality illustrations with detailed legends clarify important or difficult concepts Clinical Correlations highlight the clinical implications of basic science Each chapter is accompanied by an annotated bibliography to enhance the learning experience and provide an overview of the critical literature in the field End-of-chapter case-based questions with detailed explanations reinforce important concepts and assess understanding of the material A valuable Glossary of common phrases, terms, abbreviations, and acronyms
The questions have been compiled and tested by the ERS adult HERMES examination committee specially for this book, making it the perfect revision aid for candidates for the European Diploma, as well as any specialists in respiratory medicine who wish to exercise and improve their skills.
Taking an inter-professional and patient-focused approach, Respiratory Care is evidence-based and linked to key practice guidelines to enable postgraduate students and professionals to provide the most effective care. Each chapter includes learning outcomes and makes use of case studies to provide an explicit and practical application of the topic to patient care.
Respiratory Careis essential reading for all nurses and healthcare professionals in respiratory care in hospital or community settings.

·Up-to-date clinical information from world experts
·Easy-to-consult outline format
·Condensed information about all of the major mechanical ventilators (e.g., modes, displays, and alarms)
“The extent of coverage, easy readability, superb organization [and] ...practical pearls make [this book] worthwhile...simply a great bargain.” --Journal of Perinatology (review of a previous edition)
Scientific research and clinical evidences are equally fundamental in investigating the best methods to provide effective support and increase positive outcomes. It is obviously desirable that this knowledge and know-how are widely shared among scientists and practitioners.
With this purpose, the book includes contributions by an international panel of authors and gathers their varied and valuable expertise up to illustrate principles, study results and case experiences on respiratory physiopathology, respiratory mechanics, respiratory functions monitoring, artificial ventilation and diagnostic radiology in respiratory dysfunction failure.
We trust it can represent a precious reference for professionals in their ongoing self-improvement process to increase skilfulness. Furthermore, we hope that this book can serve as a useful learning tool for medical students and can contribute to the education of future anaesthesiologists and intensivists.
Principles & Practice of Mechanical Ventilation, 3e provides comprehensive, authoritative coverage of all the clinical, pharmacological, and technical issues surrounding the use of mechanical ventilation.
Editor Martin J. Tobin – past editor-in-chief of the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine – has enlisted more than 100 authors, all of whom are at the forefront of research in their chosen subfield in order to provide the most authoritative and up-to-date information possible. No other text so thoroughly and comprehensively explores the myriad advances in modes and methodologies that have occurred in this ever-changing field as this cornerstone text.
FeaturesEach chapter has been extensively revised to reflect the latest research A strong focus on the biomedical principles that govern ventilator management Expert insights from contributors in critical care, pulmonary medicine, anesthesiology, surgery, basic science, provide a unique multidisciplinary approach 68 chapters that explore every important aspect of mechanical ventilation, including: Conventional and unconventional methods of ventilator support; Noninvasive methods of ventilator support; Unconventional methods of ventilator support; Physiologic effect of mechanical ventilation; Complications in ventilator supported patients; Weaning of ventilator-support; Management of the ventilator-supported patient; Adjunctive therapy, including fluid management, inhaled antibiotic therapy, and bronchodilator therapy; Ethics and economics
Principles & Practice of Mechanical Ventilation, 3e comprehensively covers the principles and practice of keeping patients alive through the use of mechanical ventilation, along with related pharmacological and technical issues.
