Stay ahead of the curve with the most clinically relevant equipment text on the market, now updated with the latest equipment and most in-depth information. You'll appreciate the thorough and systematic coverage of equipment used by respiratory therapists in all areas of practice including neonates and pediatrics, cardiovascular diagnostics, and the growing field of sleep medicine. Chapters combine theory with the latest advances in new devices and techniques, computer-assisted technologies, pharmacological agents, and clinical practice guidelines. Unlike other texts, Mosby's Respiratory Care Equipment explains the mechanics of the equipment while maintaining a focus on the clinical applications. Instead of just reading a technical description of ventilators you'll learn how to select modes, set parameters, monitor the equipment, and respond to alarms. This "how to" approach prepares you to work with the entire spectrum of equipment. UNIQUE! Clinical "how to" approach helps you identify equipment, understand how it works, and apply the information to clinical practice. UNIQUE! Organization of ventilators by application area rather than by manufacturer further emphasizes the clinical focus. UNIQUE! Clinical Rounds boxes introduce you to problems you may encounter when using the equipment in a clinical setting.
