Presented in a clear, concise format for clinicians and care providers—from the novice to the most experienced—Respiratory Physiology for the Intensivist starts by offering ten chapters highlighting key physiological principles relating to the respiratory system. The subsequent eight chapters bring into focus the application of these scientific principles in the treatment of disease processes commonly encountered in ICU medicine, including pneumonia, asthma, and acute respiratory distress syndrome.
With this practical manual, author Robert L. Vender, MD, a clinician currently practicing critical care medicine, dispels the illusion that the concepts inherent to respiratory physiology have become mere terminology that is no longer relevant in today’s high-tech intensive care settings. To the contrary, readers will discover that the principles of respiratory physiology can be applied in day-to-day practice of ICU medicine for better health and survival outcomes.
