The Respiratory System in Equations

 Respiratory Medicine  Comments Off on The Respiratory System in Equations
Sep 182019
 

This book proposes an introduction to the mathematical modeling of the respiratory system. A detailed introduction on the physiological aspects makes it accessible to a large audience without any prior knowledge on the lung. Different levels of description are proposed, from the lumped models with a small number of parameters (Ordinary Differential Equations), up to infinite dimensional models based on Partial Differential Equations. Besides these two types of differential equations, two chapters are dedicated to resistive networks, and to the way they can be used to investigate the dependence of the resistance of the lung upon geometrical characteristics. The theoretical analysis of the various models is provided, together with state-of-the-art techniques to compute approximate solutions, allowing comparisons with experimental measurements. The book contains several exercises, most of which are accessible to advanced undergraduate students.

Mathematical Modeling and Validation in Physiology: Applications to the Cardiovascular and Respiratory Systems

 Cardiovascular, Respiratory Medicine  Comments Off on Mathematical Modeling and Validation in Physiology: Applications to the Cardiovascular and Respiratory Systems
Sep 132019
 

This volume synthesizes theoretical and practical aspects of both the mathematical and life science viewpoints needed for modeling of the cardiovascular-respiratory system specifically and physiological systems generally. Theoretical points include model design, model complexity and validation in the light of available data, as well as control theory approaches to feedback delay and Kalman filter applications to parameter identification. State of the art approaches using parameter sensitivity are discussed for enhancing model identifiability through joint analysis of model structure and data. Practical examples illustrate model development at various levels of complexity based on given physiological information. The sensitivity-based approaches for examining model identifiability are illustrated by means of specific modeling examples. The themes presented address the current problem of patient-specific model adaptation in the clinical setting, where data is typically limited.

Nursing Care in Pediatric Respiratory Disease

 Nursing, Pediatrics, Respiratory Medicine  Comments Off on Nursing Care in Pediatric Respiratory Disease
May 162019
 

Pediatric respiratory disorders are responsible for a number of acute and chronic health conditions and are a leading cause of pediatric emergency room visits and hospitalizations. More than ever, nurses and nurse practitioners must have an understanding of the anatomy, pathophysiology, diagnosis and state of the art treatments in pediatric respiratory disease as they are often the first to come in contact with and recognize respiratory problems in children. Nursing Care in Pediatric Respiratory Disease seeks to provide both nurses and nurse practitioners with this information in order to aid them in the diagnosis and treatment of children suffering from acute and chronic respiratory disorders.

Nursing Care in Pediatric Respiratory Disease opens with an overview of the anatomy and physiology of the respiratory system, best practices for assessing respiratory symptoms in children, and common respiratory therapies and treatment methods. It then proceeds through an examination of varying acute and chronic upper and lower respiratory diseases spanning from asthma and cystic fibrosis to vocal cord paralysis and sinusitis in both hospital and ambulatory settings.

Nursing Care in Pediatric Respiratory Disease provides nurses and other health care providers with a comprehensive and practical resource which allows them to collaborate and advocate more effectively, as well as educate both the family and child in management of respiratory disorders.

Basics of Respiratory Mechanics and Artificial Ventilation

 Respiratory Medicine  Comments Off on Basics of Respiratory Mechanics and Artificial Ventilation
Jan 222019
 

Management of the intensive care patient afflicted by respiratory insufficiency requires knowledge of the pathophysiological basis for altered functions. The etiology and therapy of pulmonary diseases, such as acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are highly complex. While physiologists and pathophysiologists work prevalently with theoretical modes, clinicians employ sophisticated ventilation support technologies in the attempt to understand the pathophysiological mechanisms of the pulmonary diseases which can present with varying grades of severity. Despite the availability of advanced technologies it is common to personalize the treatment protocol according to the patient’s physiologic structure.Given the complexity and difficulties of treating respiratory disease, a strong collaboration between clinicians and physiologists is of fundamtental importance.

Crofton and Douglas’s Respiratory Diseases (Two-Volume Set) (5th Edition)

 Respiratory Medicine  Comments Off on Crofton and Douglas’s Respiratory Diseases (Two-Volume Set) (5th Edition)
Oct 232018
 

Now in its Fifth Edition, Crofton and Douglas’s Respiratory Diseases has firmly established itself as the leading clinical textbook on diseases of the chest. Presented, for the first time, as a two-volume set, this classic text has been completely rewritten and greatly expanded. Extensive revisions ensure that these volumes present an up-to-date review of all aspects of lung disease.

The contributions of some 18 leading authorities ensure that each area is comprehensively covered and new to this edition are chapters on the genetics of lung disease, smoking, air pollution, sleep apnoea, diving, lung transplantation and medico-legal aspects. The changes in content reflect the pace of change in the areas concerned not only in terms of understanding of the disease processes but also their treatment. The single chapter on asthma that appeared in previous editions, has now been expanded into three chapters covering epidemiology, mechanisms and management, reflecting the enormous research effort currently underway following a marked increase in the incidence of this disease in recent years.

This new edition continues to provide an excellent reference both for the trainee and specialist in respiratory medicine, as well as the general physician. It will be extremely useful on the ward and in the office, where clinical problems arise and questions are asked which need clear answers.
