This pocket atlas explains how to use pulmonary graphics as a valuable adjunct for patient management. Actual patterns commonly encountered in neonatal practice are presented side-by-side with schematic illustrations that take apart the graphic and identify its key features, accompanied by brief explanatory text. The book addresses the principles of real-time pulmonary graphics, discusses waveforms and loops, and examines how both are affected by mechanical ventilation and disease states. A series of clinical cases brings key points to life.

From the book reviews:
"The authors are internationally renowned neonatologists who have numerous publications on this topic. ... This is an essential book for clinicians who participate in the ventilation of neonates in a NICU. Pulmonary graphics are often ignored or not understood by bedside caretakers. This book should go a long way toward educating caretakers about the basics of this tool and its importance in clinical care." (Jay P. Goldsmith, Doody's Book Reviews, February, 2015)
