Mechanical Ventilation in the Critically Ill Obese Patient 2018 PDF

There is no doubt that obesity has become one of the leading public health threats worldwide.The management of these patients in the emergency setting is often challenging and raises specific problems that must be addressed and overcome at the bedside in a short time. At the interface between multiple health specialties, the obese patient usually requires a time-consuming a multidisciplinary approach involving different stakeholders in respiratory care, cardiovascular diseases, endocrinology, surgery, anesthesiology, and also a necessary implication of the nursing staff. Mechanical Ventilation in the Critically Ill Obese Patient 2018 PDF ensures the best management protocol for such patient

This Mechanical Ventilation in the Critically Ill Obese Patient 2018 PDF book is intended to highlight the critically ill obese patient’s specificities that must be taken into account when mechanical ventilation is part of the therapeutic management of such a patient. Given the singularity of the massively obese critically ill patient, it can be assumed that an individualizing care approach is particularly adapted for this topic.

Good knowledge of the respiratory physiology and cardio-respiratory interactions appears to be an essential prerequisite to the management of a critically ill obese patient, especially when oxygenation and mechanical ventilation are needed.

The first part of the Mechanical Ventilation in the Critically Ill Obese Patient 2018 PDF book is devoted to delivering insight into the basic understanding of the physiological characteristics of the respiratory system of the obese patient and their implications for mechanical ventilation.

The second part deals with the comorbidities of the obese patient and the causes of acute respiratory failure that can impact on the outcome.

The third part of the Mechanical Ventilation in the Critically Ill Obese Patient 2018 PDF book includes chapters about preoxygenation, positioning, recruitment strategy, sedation and analgesia during invasive mechanical ventilation, and its associated complications. Another part is about noninvasive ventilation and the promising technique of high-flow oxygen via nasal cannula, which both have the potential to avoid the resort to invasive mechanical ventilation in many situations. Finally, nutritional support and outcome after mechanical ventilation are two main issues that are developed in the last part.

The author is convinced that this Mechanical Ventilation in the Critically Ill Obese Patient 2018 PDF book provides a useful didactic tool for an everyday practice of critical care medicine in obese patients with respiratory failure. Both editors are very grateful to all authors for their valuable contribution to the book.

Author is deeply aware of the time they spent in writing the chapters, making it possible to share their knowledge and expertise with the readers. We greatly appreciate having so many internationally recognized experts in the field of obesity and mechanical ventilation who accepted to participate in the writing of this Mechanical Ventilation in the Critically Ill Obese Patient 2018 PDF book.
