Applying mechanical ventilation principles to patient care,Pilbeam's Mechanical Ventilation: Physiological and Clinical Applications, 5th Editionhelps you provide safe, appropriate, and compassionate care for patients requiring ventilatory support. A focus on evidence-based practice includes the latest techniques and equipment, with complex ventilator principles simplified for optimal learning. This edition adds new case studies and new chapters on ventilator-associated pneumonia and on neonatal and pediatric mechanical ventilation. Starting with the most fundamental concepts and building to the most advanced, expert educator J. M. Cairo presents clear, comprehensive, up-to-date coverage of the rapidly evolving field of mechanical ventilation.

  • Excerpts of Clinical Practice Guidelinesdeveloped by the AARC (American Association for Respiratory Care) make it easy to access important information regarding indications/contraindications, hazards and complications, assessment of need, assessment of outcome, and monitoring.
  • Case Studieswith exercises andCritical Care Conceptsaddress situations that may be encountered during mechanical ventilation.
  • Learning objectivesat the beginning of each chapter help in accurately gauging your comprehension and measuring your progress.
  • Chapter outlinesshow the "big picture" of each chapter's content.
  • Key termsare listed in the chapter opener, then bolded and defined at their first mention in the text.
  • Key Pointboxeshighlight need-to-know information.
  • NBRC exam-style assessment questionsat the end of each chapter offer practice for the certification exam.
  • NEWNeonatal and Pediatric Mechanical Ventilationchaptercovers the latest advances and research relating to young patients.
  • Additional case studiesin each chapter present "real-life" scenarios, showing the practical application of newly acquired skills.
  • End-of-chapter summarieshelp with review and in assessing your comprehension with a bulleted list of key content.
