Mechanical Ventilators for Non-Invasive Ventilation Principles of Technology and Science – 1st edition
This book Mechanical Ventilators for Non-Invasive Ventilation: Principles of Technology and Science analyzes and describes the whole spectrum of technical elements related with non-invasive mechanical ventilators technologies, ventilator modes and complementary technologies for correct interpretation and clinical indications.
With the aim of addressing different topics, authors have presented in each chapter and section a rigorous summary of non-invasive mechanical ventilators principles and technologies, as well as clinical indications in order to understand lung function. Moreover, this book also offers a comprehensive examination of how mechanical ventilators interact, for example, in case of asynchrony (diagnosis/treatment), and other tools.
The patient-mechanical ventilator interactions sections have been planned from a physiological basis, as they include physical description of the ventilator elements and the non-invasive algorithms that allow adequate patient-ventilator interaction.
