Mechanical Ventilation provides students and clinicians concerned with the care of patients requiring mechanical ventilatory support a comprehensive guide to the evaluation of the critically ill patient, assessment of respiratory failure, indications for mechanical ventilation, initiation of mechanical ventilatory support, patient stabilization, monitoring and ventilator discontinuance. The text begins with an introduction to critical respiratory care followed by a review of respiratory failure to include assessment of oxygenation, ventilation and acid-base status. A chapter is provided which reviews principles of mechanical ventilation and commonly used ventilators and related equipment. Indications for mechanical ventilation are next discussed to include invasive and non-invasive ventilation. Ventilator commitment is then described to include establishment of the airway, choice of ventilator, mode of ventilation, and initial ventilator settings. Patient stabilization is then discu

Carbon dioxide in the respired gases gives evidence of life processes and the adequacy of breathing. The amount and concentration of the gas in the breath can be measured and monitored with instruments called capnographs, which are used whenever and wherever the breathing of a patient might be affected by disease or treatment. The book deals not only with the clinical application of these devices but also with the basic physiology of the generation and transport of carbon dioxide in the body. A technical section describes how the instruments work and a unique section tells the history of capnography. Over 40 contributors cover these aspects in the book, which has been edited by three experts in the field.

Drawing upon the groundwork laid in the first edition, this book has been revised, expanded, and completely updated to include the broader concerns of airway gas analysis and management. While the first edition focused on the monitoring of carbon dioxide levels in the body, the second edition now looks at the monitoring of oxygen, nitrogen, helium and the anaesthetic agents. The authors discuss the clinical, physiologic, and tehnologic perspectives involved in monitoring all of these gases in the body. Additionally, this edition has been expanded to address the difficulties involved in monitoring carbon dioxide in small infants. This book will prove invaluable to any anesthesiologist keeping pace with the changing capnography technology.

Reorganized to better reflect the order in which mechanical ventilation is typically taught, this text focuses on the management of patients who are receiving mechanical ventilatory support and provides clear discussion of mechanical ventilation and its application. The 4th edition features two-color illustrations, an increased focus on critical thinking, a continued emphasis on ventilator graphics, and several new chapters including non-invasive positive pressure ventilation and long-term ventilation. Excerpts of the most recent CPGs are included to give students important information regarding indications/contraindications, hazards and complications, assessment of need, assessment of outcome, and monitoring. Clinical Rounds boxes contain problems that may be encountered during actual use of equipment and raise questions for the student to answer. Case studies are included as boxes throughout the chapters within boxes and Clinical Rounds. Historical Notes provide educationally or clinically relevant information. Chapters featuring topics such as methods to improve ventilation, frequently used pharmacologic agents in ventilated patients, cardiovascular complications, pulmonary complications, noninvasive positive pressure ventilation, and long-term ventilation have been added. Key Point boxes have been placed sporadically throughout the chapters and highlight key information for the reader. Increased number of NBRC-type questions reflecting the types of questions and amount of coverage on the board exams. Respected educator J.M. Cairo has been added as co-author, bringing in a fresh voice and a wide breadth of experience. A reorganization of chapters creates a text that is more in line with the way the course is typically taught. lAll chapters have been heavily revised and updated, particularly the chapters on ventilator graphics, methods to improve oxygenation, and neonatal and pediatric ventilation. A second color has been added to enhance the overall design and line drawings. Key terms are listed at the beginning of each chapter and highlighted at first mention.

Prepare for success on respiratory therapy credentialing exams! Updated to reflect the 2009 National Board of Respiratory Care (NBRC) content outlines, Sills' The Comprehensive Respiratory Therapist's Exam Review, 5th Edition helps you review for both entry and advanced level credentialing exams. It covers every testable subject, providing content review, self-assessment questions, and study hints. This title includes additional digital media when purchased in print format. For this digital book edition, media content is not included. Unique! Exam Hint boxes point out subjects that are frequently tested, helping you study, plan your time, and improve your test-taking skills. Self-study questions are included at the end of each chapter, accompanied by answers and rationales in the back of the book. Complexity level codes (recall, application, and analysis) help you prepare for questions in the way that is most appropriate (e.g., memorization for recall or synthesis for analysis). NBRC content outline coding provides a code for each topic so you can be sure that you have covered every topic that might appear on the exam. CRT and RRT level codes speed your review by identifying the individual topics for the CRT and RRT exams, as well as topics for both. One text now covers both the entry and advanced levels of Respiratory Therapists credentialing exams, so you need only one book to prepare for CRT and RRT credentials. Updated content reflects the NBRC's new examination content outlines, so you get an accurate, current review. New coverage includes subject areas such as CPAP/BiPAP titration during sleep, hemodynamic monitoring, hyperinflation therapy, laryngeal mask airway, high frequency ventilation, oxygen titration, thoracentesis, ultrasound, and ventilator-associated pneumonia protocols.
