THE account of the use of mechanical ventilation in critically ill patients
A Doody's Core Title for 2011!
4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!
"This second edition continues the role established by its predecessor as the leading work in the field. Mechanical ventilation, as a defining event of critical care, has seen an explosion of physiologic and outcomes research in the past decade. Our thinking about management of ARDS, ventilator-induced lung injury, patient-ventilator interaction, and infectious complications has changed dramatically. All of this recent work is summarized here."--Doody's Review Service
Editor Martin J. Tobin--past editor-in-chief of the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine--has completely revised this text, acclaimed by The Lancet as "the bible of mechanical ventilation." The new edition is a cover-to-cover revision of the original content, filled with cutting-edge scientific insights from more than 200 contributors representing critical care, pulmonary medicine, anesthesiology, surgery, basic science, and radiology.
- Up-to-the minute, rigorous coverage that addresses every important scientific, clinical, and technical aspect of the field
- 70 well-organized chapters that encompass the full scope of mechanical ventilation, including the physical basis of mechanical ventilation; conventional, alternative, noninvasive, and unconventional methods of ventilator support; complications and airway management; and ethics and economics
- 24 new chapters on current issues in mechanical ventilation: Closed Loop Ventilation, Inhaled Antibiotic Therapy, Sleep and Speech in the Ventilated Patient, Mechanical Ventilation in ARDS, Ventilation Outside the ICU, and more
- Highly relevant new chapters on pharmacological and adjuvant therapy
- Greater use of tables and lists that conveniently summarize key information and solidify chapter concepts

Sepsis or septic shock is a type of condition/infection which represents one of the leading post-surgical or post-traumatic complications. Sepsis is the major cause of morbidity and mortality in intensive care units worldwide. Also, sepsis is the leading cause of death in non-coronary patients, with pulmonary sepsis accounting for most cases as it relates to lung dysfunction. This is a concise, practical softcover volume devoted to covering only the most practical information for physicians. Charts, tables, and other figures are used to illustrate easy-to-follow treatment guidelines for those professionals who regularly treat patients in the ICU.

Literature references are highlighted within the chapters and provide a discussion of pivotal journal articles relevant to the topic at hand. Algorithms are integrated into the chapters to serve as a roadmap for patient management.
|Transoesophageal Echocardiography in Anaesthesia and Intensive Care Medicine

Transoesophageal Echocardiography (TOE) has a major impact on patient management during the perioperative period. It is an evolving tool in diagnosis of cardiovascular disease and haemodynamic assessment. The knowledge required for the examination and the practice of TOE is enormous and is continuously evolving. Consequently there is a clear need for a new comprehensive text written by experts involved in the perioperative care, not (only) by the cardiologists or full time echocardiographers.
|Principles of Clinical Measurement and Monitoring in Anaesthesia and Intensive Care

Author: MK Sykes
This is the third edition of the book originally published as Principles of Measurement for Anaesthetists. The major objective of the text is to explain the physical principles on which measurements are based, and to consider the problems and possible sources of error with each of the techniques, so that those choosing a measurement or monitoring system can make a rational choice from the commercially available equipment.

|Nurturing the Premature Infant: Developmental Intervention in the Neonatal Intensive Care Nursery
Lowest new price: $46.77
Lowest used price: $0.27
List price: $62.50
Traditionally, non-medical, developmental intervention with premature infants has been a controversial topic in neonatal intensive care units (NICU). However, a small but growing band of researchers have been pushing for the acceptance of alternative interventions, such as kangaroo care and massage therapy, that do not resort to surgical or other medical practices. Edward Goldson, a pediatrician at Children's Hospital in Colorado, has assembled the top researchers in the field to contribute to this comprehensive volume that deals with non-medical intervention with premature infants. Nurturing the Premature Infant is the first to combine the innovative research in this growing area and present it in a single volume. Not only will it be indispensable to professionals in the field, but it will also be of interest to parents of premature infants.
