Main description

A detailed yet simple guide to mechanical ventilation

Essential to students as well as clinicians working in the intensive care unit

Practical Applications of Mechanical Ventilation is a concise basic textbook on mechanical ventilators valuable to students as well as practitioners. It provides a thorough overview of the physiologic basis of ventilation and details various ventilatory strategies for different disease states requiring intensive care.

The book is comprised of 43 chapters grouped into six parts to cover all aspects of ventilatory management. Sections include:

  • Respiratory Physiology
  • Effects of Controlled Ventilation
  • Know Your Ventilator
  • Ventilatory Parameter
  • Modes of Ventilation
  • Ventilation Strategy
