Practical Applications of Mechanical Ventilation is the new edition of this comprehensive guide to assisting or replacing natural breathing in intensive care patients.

The book is divided into 45 chapters across six sections, beginning with respiratory physiology; this section covers the anatomy of respiration, respiratory mechanics, and other basics of the respiratory system, including lung volume and capacity. The second part covers the effects of mechanical ventilation on the patient, including those that are harmful, and how to minimise them. Parts three and four cover the principles and use of mechanical ventilation, with related pharmacological and technical issues, and part five introduces the various modes of ventilation and their applications. The final section covers ventilation strategy for different disorders, including severe asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases, ARDS, traumatic brain injury and neuromuscular diseases.

The second edition of Practical Applications of Mechanical Ventilation features two brand new chapters in section four, covering autoflow/automode, and the interpretation of scalar graphics of mechanical ventilation. With over 460 images and illustrations, this book provides a vital reference guide for all involved in the management of intensive care patients requiring mechanical ventilation.
