With a concise and easy-to-read approach, the new edition of this book integrates the essential concepts of respiratory physiology with the clinical application of mechanical ventilation. Extensive coverage of airway management and weaning criteria, and a concise view of pharmacotherapy for mechanical ventilation are included. Each chapter features visual examples illustrating concepts, key points summarized in margin references, and assessment questions written in NRBC format, to help prepare learners to sit for the exam. Fifteen case studies enable learners to apply theoretical knowledge to real-world critical thinking situations they may face in the field.
