Noninvasive Ventilation

by Mukesh Kumar Agarwal

This book is a method of ventilatory support without using endotracheal tube or tracheostomy tube. It is not an alternative to conventional invasive ventilation but has emerged as a useful method to give ventilatory support in many patients. It can be tried before intubation to obviate the need of invasive ventilation in appropriate patients. It is written with the aim to provide simple, practical and clinically useful text to readers. It is a focused, practical and concise text on noninvasive ventilation. Main emphasis has been given on practical aspects. Lengthy theoretical details, surveys, trials and studies are omitted. Only relatively well-established aspects are covered. Purpose of text, Clinical pearls and in a nutshell has been added to most of chapters. Much of the text is covered using tables and diagrams for purpose of ease. A complete chapter has been devoted on IPAP, EPAP and CPAP. The book will be useful to physicians, pulmonologists, intensivists, paramedical staff involved in critical care practice and medical students.
