Ventilator Management: Advanced Concepts in Critical Care
A thought-provoking book that will dissect ventilator management concepts within critical care medicine, with a focus on intermediate and advanced mechanical ventilation concepts.
Mechanical ventilation is a broad subject that encompasses many factors that must be considered while providing overall resuscitation. It is not as easy as just entering in a rate and tidal volume and pushing start. Critical care medicine has many core resuscitation pathways that need to be applied with mechanical ventilation in mind. Resuscitation is our goal, with mechanical ventilation being a small part of the overall treatment paradigm. As a critical care provider, it is imperative that you have a broad understanding of current practice guidelines and how each treatment affects your patient in a positive or negative manner. Couple this with the massive subject called mechanical ventilation and you have an even bigger mountain to conquer.
Eric Bauer and Tyler Christifulli team up for this dynamic, thought-provoking book that will dissect ventilator management concepts within critical care medicine. Ventilator Management – ADVANCED Concepts in Critical Care will continue building on the foundational book – Ventilator Management: A Pre-Hospital Perspective, which is used by colleges, universities, and critical care transport companies around the world. Ventilator Management – ADVANCED: Concepts in Critical Care will take a comprehensive look at ventilator management strategies as they relate to pre-hospital transport in both the ground and helicopter emergency medical services (HEMS) industries, with a core focus on advanced ventilation concepts and resuscitation factors that will impact your clinical practice and patient care.
In keeping with the first book, we have written this book in a comprehensive but conversational format and will hit on all things related to critical care transport and mechanical ventilation. The book includes current research concepts, ventilation theory, core clinical ventilation strategies, and case application commentary, with reference materials for maximizing your study time.
