Book Description :

Obesity Hypoventilation Syndrome: From Physiologic Principles to Clinical Practice summarizes the current state of knowledge regarding the epidemiology, physiology and treatment of obesity hypoventilation syndrome (OHS). Currently, the identification and management of OHS is suboptimal, especially in the acute setting, hence the misdiagnosis or mislabeling of the problem has a significant impact on patient outcomes. This volume brings together all aspects of assessment and management into a main resource for understanding the complex physiological and clinical consequences of this condition. Provides one page chapter summaries that cover epidemiology, physiology and treatment options Presents an easy to use reference on obesity hypoventilation syndrome, including symptoms Contains chapters with detailed discussions of topics, including color images, graphs and tables that summarize current research

Book Description :

This book is an introduction to a comprehensive analysis of recent advances and clinical research in noninvasive mechanical ventilation (NIV) in Pulmonary, Critical Care, and Sleep Medicine. The objective of the book is to increase the knowledge and understanding of the reader in the best clinical practice in three main sections. A selected international group of experts in the field of noninvasive ventilation formed a panel to provide an update on the recent literature in the application and efficient utilization of NIV in Pulmonary, Critical Care, and Sleep Medicine. Each particular section will discuss the application of NIV in different disease process. The authors summarized the main results of the recent trials, clinical and technological advances, expert opinions, and practical guidelines. Chapters, summarized by expert committee, provide a “deep and exhaustive critical analysis and summary” of the recent advances in the field of NIV, presented as key points and/recommendations for the best clinical practice from articles published in the last decade. The content of the book will serve as a resource and a tool to the practicing physicians toward NIV. Main objective is to increase their proficiency in management of different pathophysiological aspects of the respiratory system. In this line, the book offers to the readers, who are seeking the latest recommendations, the future research directions in noninvasive mechanical ventilation. Table of contents describe and analyze, the items trend setters in noninvasive ventilation, organized in three main sections, “pulmonary”, “critical care” and “sleep medicine”, using the primary keyword related with term “noninvasive mechanical ventilation” as search term associated with “secondary keywords” studies from a period of 2018 to 2019. This searching methodology and analysis define this unique book to the approach in noninvasive mechanical ventilation for best clinical practice, research, clinical study designs and critical analysis, how noninvasive ventilation is current and trending. Based on this form of conception of book updated, editors and authors consider that this book opens a new and original vision for adequate knowledge and deep updated based on key publications in the period under review, very useful for clinical practice, studies designs and potential new trends in the use of noninvasive ventilation. As such, it is a unique update book resource in noninvasive ventilation in pulmonary, critical care and sleep medicine that may influence current clinical practice and future studies. With ultimate goal is better care and outcome for our patients.

Book Description :

This book comprehensively addresses the use of pulmonary function measurement for the evaluation, screening and timing of noninvasive mechanical ventilation (NIMV) from hospital to home care. To do so, it describes three clinical stages of NIMV support: before NIV, to detect early markers and determine whether NIV is appropriate; during NIV, to evaluate NIV response; and in long-term NIV support. Additionally, it assesses a range of complementary health care organizations (pulmonary function labs, pneumology wards, semi-intensive care units and home mechanical ventilation programs), techniques (chest physiotherapy/airway secretions, etc.) and applications. In closing, the book offers practical recommendations on how noninvasive ventilation and lung function measurement can improve outcomes and quality of life, making it a valuable resource for all specialists, e.g. intensivists and pneumologists, as well as anesthesiologists and therapists. .
