2015 New Horizons Symposium: Treatment Strategies for Hypoxemic Respiratory Failure and Bonus Selections

ebk00082015 New Horizons Symposium: Treatment Strategies for Hypoxemic Respiratory Failure and Bonus Selections – $2.99
This e-book in the Best of RESPIRATORY CARE contains a series of papers that cover treatment strategies for hypoxemic respiratory failure. Acute hypoxemic respiratory failure (AHRF) that is refractory to supplemental O2 is caused by intrapulmonary shunting of blood resulting from airspace filling or collapse. Treatment usually requires mechanical ventilation. This e-book looks at a variety of treatment strategies from the 30th Annual New Horizons Symposium and two recent published manuscripts.
