Like the first edition, this second edition serves as a concise guide to the respiratory care of neonatal and paediatric patients. The book features over 26 contributors and proceeds from general introductory concepts to disease states that are unique to this group of patients. It moves on to coverage of equipment and therapy, and discussions about developmental assessment, surfactant replacements and extracorporeal membrane oxygenation. This edition contains expanded coverage of surfactant development, lung growth, pulmonary function, surgical treatment, heat moisture exchanges, maternal substance usea and abuse, tracheostomy and potential electrical interference with equipment. New to this edition are sections on brochoscopy, HIV, cystic fibrosis, transplantation, high frequency delivery, new ventilators and new methods of providing respiratory support.
