Summarizing state-of-the-art developments in long-term mechanical ventilation use, this comprehensive treatise reviews the applications, complications, and care of breathing disorders affecting the growing population of ventilation-assisted individuals-including neuromuscular and chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases (COPD) and chest wall deformities.
Qualitatively considers reimbursement options for management outside of acute care settings!
Covering both noninvasive ventilation (NIV) and invasive ventilation techniques and procedures, Long-Term Mechanical Ventilation
Containing over 1400 literature references, tables, drawings, and photographs, Long-Term Mechanical Ventilation is a necessary reference for pulmonary and thoracic specialists, chest physicians, anesthesiologists, physiologists, physiatrists and rehabilitation physicians, respiratory therapists, intensive care specialists, and medical school and graduate school students in these disciplines.
This book will occupy a prominent place on the shelf of any interested reader. The wide coverage of the topic is likely to make it a frequently consulted reference. It differs from other books on mechanical ventilation in its special emphasis on the long-term perspective and its coverage of noninvasive ventilation options….a much needed and timely book.
"- Doody's Health Sciences Book Review, 2001
"… a very up-to-date account of this rapidly developing field….
…will be of interest to anyone involved in managing patients with chronic respiratory failure….a very valuable reference on an important topic.
