Essentials of Mechanical Ventilation, 4th Ed.

This practical guide is written from the perspective of authors who have nearly 100 years’experience as clinicians, educators, researchers, and authors. Unlike other references on the topic, this resource is about mechanical ventilation rather than mechanical ventilators. It's written to provide a solid understanding of the general principles and essential foundational knowledge of mechanical ventilation as required by respiratory therapists and critical care physicians. Concepts such as driving pressure are included, and the content has been checked against the most recently published clinical practice guidelines.
