Manual of Neonatal Respiratory Care 4th ed. 2017 Edition

The latest edition of this popular book covers the “how-to” of respiratory care of newborns. Chapters from the previous edition have been updated to reflect advances in both equipment and practice, while newer chapters reflect the evolving worldwide approaches to neonatal respiratory failure, such as sustained inflation, optimization of lung volume, and the use of volumetric capnography, aerosol therapy, and management of chylothorax. New additions to the book also include chapters on assessment of large data bases, implementation of quality improvement programs in neonatal respiratory care, chronic ventilation of the baby with non-respiratory failure. The text also features case studies for self-review and is illustrated with high quality radiographic images, figures, tables, and algorithms.

Written and edited by international experts, the Manual of Neonatal Respiratory Care, Fourth Edition is a thorough update and remains a convenient source of practical information on respiratory physiology, exam techniques, tips for performing procedures, radiography, ventilation, pain management, transport, and discharge planning.

Essentials of Mechanical Ventilation – 4th Edition

The acclaimed application-based guide to adult mechanical ventilation — updated to reflect the latest topics and practice guidelines

A Doody’s Core Title for 2019! 

This practical guide is written from the perspective of authors who have nearly 100 years’ experience as clinicians, educators, researchers, and authors. Unlike other references on the topic, this resource is about mechanical ventilation rather than mechanical ventilators. It is written to provide a solid understanding of the general principles and essential foundational knowledge of mechanical ventilation as required by respiratory therapists and critical care physicians.  To make it clinically relevant, Essentials of Mechanical Ventilation includes disease-specific chapters related to mechanical ventilation in these conditions.

The Fourth Edition has been carefully updated throughout. New content includes coverage of mechanical ventilation of the obese patient and advanced monitoring procedures. Concepts such as driving pressure are included, and the content has been checked against the most recently published clinical practice guidelines.

Essentials of Mechanical Ventilation, Fourth Edition is divided into four parts:

Part One, Principles of Mechanical Ventilation describes basic principles of mechanical ventilation and then continues with issues such as indications for mechanical ventilation, appropriate physiologic goals, and ventilator liberation.

Part Two, Ventilator Management, gives practical advice for ventilating patients with a variety of diseases.

Part Three, Monitoring During Mechanical Ventilation, discusses blood gases, hemodynamics, mechanics, and waveforms.

Part Four, Topics in Mechanical Ventilation, covers issues such as airway management, aerosol delivery, and extracorporeal life support.

Diagnosis and Management of Pulmonary Hypertension

This book provides an overview of pulmonary hypertensive diseases, the current understanding of their pathobiology, and a contemporary approach to diagnosis and treatment. It discusses the definition and classification of these disorders and the epidemiology of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH); explores the approach to diagnosis and evaluation via methods such as echocardiography, right heart catheterization, and cardiopulmonary exercise testing; describes the major drug classes used to treat PAH and the cell signaling pathways that they target as well as adjunct and investigative therapies; and highlights special situations that are particularly challenging in the management of PAH. Written by experts in their respective fields, Diagnosis and Management of Pulmonary Hypertension is a valuable resource for pulmonologists, cardiologists, and practitioners in internal medicine and critical care.

Small Cell Carcinomas: Causes, Diagnosis and Treatment

Small cell carcinoma is a type of cancer that almost always effects the lungs. Small cell carcinoma is almost always caused by smoking, but exposure to large amounts of asbestos is also a risk factor. Small cell carcinoma usually effects men more than women and while not a common type of lung cancer, is considered very deadly. Unlike other types of cancer, small cell carcinoma is not staged on a numerical scale but rather as simply limited or extensive. Limited stage refers to cancer that is contained within the lungs or bronchial tubes only. Extensive stage indicates the cancer has spread to areas outside of the chest. Limited stage small cell carcinoma is rare because it is usually not diagnosed until it has become extensive. Symptoms of small cell carcinoma lung cancer are similar to other types of lung cancer and may include chronic coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath, sputum production, and possibly weight loss. This new book gathers the latest research from around the globe on this disease.
