ebk00012014 New Horizons Symposium: Back to the Basics—Respiratory Physiology in Critically Ill Patients — $2.99
This e-book in the Best of RESPIRATORY CARE contains a series of papers that cover various aspects of the basics in respiratory physiology in the mechanically ventilated, critically ill patient. It covers the nuances of oxygenation, ventilation, lung mechanics, respiratory physiology and cardiopulmonary interactions. Detail reviews of management techniques and interpretation of clinical data is discussed in detail.
