This ebook; Basics of Mechanical Ventilation (PDF) is a practical and easily understandable guide for mechanical ventilation. With a focus on the basics; this textbook begins with a detailed account of the mechanisms of spontaneous breathing as a reference point to then describe how a ventilator actually works and how to effectively use it in practice. The ebook then details: patient-ventilator interactions and dyssynchrony; the various modes of ventilation commonly used in clinical practice; the optimal ventilator management for common disease states like acute respiratory distress syndrome and obstructive lung disease; how to approach a patient on the ventilator with respiratory decompensation; the process of ventilator weaning; and hemodynamic effects of mechanical ventilation. Written for residents; medical students; and practising physicians in a variety of different specialities (including critical care; internal medicine; surgery and anesthesiology); this ebook will instruct readers on how to effectively manage a ventilator; as well as explain the underlying interactions between it and the critically ill patient.
