Clinical application of mechanical ventilation David w chang 4th edition
Mechanical ventilation has been an integral part of critical care medicine.This Clinical application of mechanical ventilation David w chang 4th edition book attempts to strike a balance between an adequate coverage in theory and a spectrum of needed clinical knowledge. The learners should find this book useful to develop a solid foundation in the methods of mechanical ventilation. With additional clinical experience, the learners should be able to integrate and apply the theories of mechanical ventilation in a clinical setting for better patient care.
In the Clinical application of mechanical ventilation David w chang 4th edition, new information and numerous references have been added. In some cases, older references are retained because their unique contribution has not been duplicated or cannot be found elsewhere. These classic references also allow learners and researchers to follow the path of progression in the knowledge and techniques of mechanical ventilation.
In this fourth edition, the key terms are boldfaced within the text, and the definitions are placed in the margin for quick reference. Essential information is also highlighted in the margin for quick reference. Learning objectives can be found at the beginning of Chapters 1 through 18.
Chapter 1 of the Clinical application of mechanical ventilation David w chang 4th edition reviews the standard pulmonary mechanics and the abnormal physiologic conditions leading to ventilatory failure.
Chapter 2 provides a review of the effects of positive pressure ventilation on the major body systems and organs.
Chapter 3 covers the components, terminology, and classification of mechanical ventilators. Section 4 describes current operating modes of mechanical ventilation.
Chapter 5 reviews some particular airways that are used to facilitate ventilation and oxygenation.
Chapter 6 covers the application, management, and complications of endotracheal and tracheostomy tubes.
Chapter 7 presents the clinical application of noninvasive positive pressure ventilation and the associated interfaces. Chapter 8 offers the standard procedures for the initiation of mechanical ventilation. The indications, contraindications, initial ventilator settings, and alarm settings relating to mechanical ventilation are also discussed.
Chapter 9 outlines the essential methods of patient monitoring to include imaging, fluid balance, blood gases, pulse oximetry, capnography, transcutaneous blood gases, and cerebral perfusion pressure.
Chapter 10 covers the basics of invasive, less invasive and noninvasive hemodynamic monitoring.
Chapter 11 gives a detailed discussion on ventilator waveform analysis and its applications.
Chapter 12 presents the strategies to improve ventilation and oxygenation during mechanical ventilation. It also describes the necessary strategy to manage ventilator alarms and abnormal physiologic conditions during mechanical ventilation.
Chapter 13 reviews the primary pharmacotherapy for mechanical ventilation.
