Applying mechanical ventilation principles to patient care, Pilbeam's Mechanical Ventilation: Physiological and Clinical Applications, 5th Edition helps you provide safe, appropriate, and compassionate care for patients requiring ventilatory support. A focus on evidence-based practice includes the latest techniques and equipment, with complex ventilator principles simplified for optimal learning. This edition adds new case studies and new chapters on ventilator-associated pneumonia and on neonatal and pediatric mechanical ventilation. Starting with the most fundamental concepts and building to the most advanced, expert educator J. M. Cairo presents clear, comprehensive, up-to-date coverage of the rapidly evolving field of mechanical ventilation.

    • Excerpts of the most recent CPGs are included to give students important information regarding indications/contraindications, hazards and complications, assessment of need, assessment of outcome, and monitoring.
    • Clinical Rounds boxes contain problems that may be encountered during actual use of equipment and raise questions for the student to answer.
    • Case studies are included as boxes throughout the chapters within boxes and Clinical Rounds.
    • Historical Notes provide educationally or clinically relevant information.
    • Chapters featuring topics such as methods to improve ventilation, frequently used pharmacologic agents in ventilated patients, cardiovascular complications, pulmonary complications, noninvasive positive pressure ventilation, and long-term ventilation have been added.
    • Key Point boxes have been placed sporadically throughout the chapters and highlight key information for the reader.
    • Increased number of NBRC-type questions reflecting the types of questions and amount of coverage on the board exams.
    • Respected educator J.M. Cairo has been added as co-author, bringing in a fresh voice and a wide breadth of experience.
    • A reorganization of chapters creates a text that is more in line with the way the course is typically taught.
    • lAll chapters have been heavily revised and updated, particularly the chapters on ventilator graphics, methods to improve oxygenation, and neonatal and pediatric ventilation.
    • A second color has been added to enhance the overall design and line drawings.
    • Key terms are listed at the beginning of each chapter and highlighted at first mention.
