Non-Invasive Ventilation and Weaning: Principles and Practice provides up-to-date, authoritative and comprehensive information from a prestigious range of worldwide key opinion leaders on different applications for non-invasive ventilation, and closely related techniques, both in hospital and at home.
Chapters cover the use of non-invasive ventilation in acute and chronic respiratory failure, plus paediatric and other specialty applications. Sections are devoted to conditions including COPD, cardiac failure and neuromuscular disease; in each case, there are detailed evaluations of current best practice regarding the science, diagnostics and management of the condition. Concise summaries of each chapter, plus generous use of tables and illustrations, ensure the reader gains rapid access to the wealth of information presented.
Non Invasive Ventilation and Weaning: Principles and Practice is the definitive reference work for all pulmonologists and critical care specialists working in the hospital or home setting.

•Comprehensive reference work covering home- and intensive care-based ventilation
•Detailed chapters covering acute and chronic applications, paediatric use and weaning issues
•A truly global perspective - written by three highly respected specialists and a team of contributors from 14 different countries including Europe, USA and China
