MCQs in Mechanical Ventilation: A Case-based Approach

by Sanjith Saseedharan

The book offers you a case-based discussion on mechanical ventilation in a multiple-choice question-answer format. This book consists of 8 chapters written in the form of case scenarios. Explanations are provided of each answer bringing out the reasoning of the right as well as the wrong answer. Ventilating a critically ill patient in the initial phases of various critical illnesses also allows various non-respiratory disorders, such as traumatic brain injury, shock due to any cause, polytrauma and after major elective surgery, time to stabilize and to prevent secondary damage or worsening of the primary condition. Therefore, mastering the art and science of mechanical ventilation is vital for success in critical care. With the availability of non-invasive ventilation, it is being extensively used as the first line of ventilator support for many intensive care unit patients. Thus, this book is the most sought-after title by an accomplished critical care expert that features correct answer from the multiple choices. It also provides readers with an explanation of what will happen if incorrect ventilator settings are used or inappropriate decisions are taken.
