Description

This state-of-the-art reference provides current and effective disease-specific strategies for the management of patients receiving mechanical ventilation-emphasizing weaning processes, monitored sedation, minimization of complications and infection, and new modes of treatment for patients in critical care.

Exploring ancillary approaches, noninvasive positive pressure ventilation, oxygenation, and bronchodilator therapy as options to optimize cost and reduce injury, Ventilator Management Strategies for Critical Care discusses

  • methods to diagnose, manage, and avoid ventilator-associated pneumonia

  • consequences of extubation failure

  • mechanics of true closed-loop ventilation

  • neuromuscular blocking agents and physiological disturbances

  • therapy for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)

  • and more!

    With contributions by over 40 seasoned experts in the field, Ventilator Management Strategies for Critical Care is a valuable resource for intensive or critical care and pulmonary or critical care specialists, surgical critical care specialists, anesthesiologists, physiologists, physiatrists and rehabilitation physicians, respiratory therapists, and medical school and graduate students in these disciplines.
