Pediatric and Neonatal Mechanical Ventilation 2nd Edition

Libros de Medicina en PDF
Pediatric and Neonatal Mechanical Ventilation
After the first edition came out in 2006, Pediatric and Neonatal Mechanical Ventilation became instantly popular with pediatric residents in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) due to its small size and simple and practice-oriented approach.

Recently, more advances have come up in the field of mechanical ventilation including newer modes such as airway pressure release ventilation, neurally adjusted ventilatory assist (NAVA) and high frequency oscillatory ventilation (HFOV).
Newer ventilators with sophisticated microchip technology are able to offer better ventilation with precision with graphics and monitoring of dynamic parameters on a real-time basis as well as sophisticated alarm systems to check pressures (over distention) and volumes delivered to the patient via the breathing circuit (leaks if any). Newer advances such as FiO2 weaning by feedback loop with real-time sensing of SpO2 in the patient by the microchip built in the ventilator are soon going to be a reality.
In the second edition, newer chapters on specific scenarios of Ventilation in Asthma, ARDS, Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO), Patient ventilator synchrony have been added. Flow charts have also been included in most of the chapters for ready reference. Some newer ventilators and their information have also been added in chapter on commonly available ventilators.
I sincerely hope that this book will continue to be of practical use to the residents and fellows in the pediatric and neonatal intensive care unit.
