Assisted Ventilation of the Neonate 6th Edition

Libros de Medicina en PDF
Assisted Ventilation of the Neonate
In this, the sixth edition, two new editors have graciously added their expertise to the task of providing the most up-to-date and evidence-based guidelines on providing ventilatory and supportive care to critically ill newborns. Dr. Martin Keszler, Professor of Pediatrics and Medical Director of Respiratory Care at Brown University, is internationally renowned for his work in neonatal ventilation.
Dr. Gautham K. Suresh, now the Chief of Neonatology of the Newborn Center at Texas Children’s Hospital and a professor at Baylor University, is regarded as one of the foremost authorities on quality improvement in neonatal care. With an infusion of new ideas, the text has been completely rewritten and divided into five sections. The first section covers general principles and concepts and includes new chapters on respiratory diagnostic tests, medical legal aspects of respiratory care, and quality and safety. The second section reviews assessment, diagnosis, and monitoring methods of the newborn in respiratory distress. New chapters include imaging, noninvasive monitoring of gas exchange, and airway evaluation.
Therapeutic respiratory interventions are covered in the greatly expanded third section, with all types of ventilator modalities and strategies reviewed in detail. Adjunctive interventions such as pulmonary and nursing care, nutritional support, and pharmacologic therapies are the subjects of the fourth section. Finally, the fifth section of the text reviews special situations and outcomes, including chapters on transport, BPD care, discharge, and transition to home as well as pulmonary and neurologic outcomes.
