Who says understanding ventilator modes has to be hard? This book gives you easy to understand information that every RRT, RN, or resident always wishes they had. Each mode is described in simple language and answers the three most important questions about ventilator modes: what the mode does, how it works, and when it should be used.
Written by a critical care respiratory therapist, this book provides a great foundation to become a ventilator management authority. A total of 14 different ventilator modes are described in detail including both conventional and high frequency ventilation. A bonus section also thoroughly describes ventilator settings and terminology as well as the three most common weaning parameters in use today!
Whether you're a registered nurse, a respiratory therapist, a medical resident, or any allied health professional working in critical care units, you will find this book to be a great resource.
