Covid-19 airway management and ventilation strategy for critically ill older patients( )

5 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book describes the issues and challenges that clinicians encountered in the management of older critically ill patients during the Covid-19 pandemic, and offers practical information on how to manage them. Older adults are more susceptible to complications such as acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) as a result of viral pneumonia. In addition, they often have multiple comorbidities and are commonly frail, which means their various organs and systems, such as the respiratory system, have reduced functional reserves. As such, older adults are less able to react to acute stressors. During the current Covid-19 pandemic, older adult patients' mortality is increased. Further, the infection and death rates of elderly people in nursing homes and health care institutions are high. Management of older adults with Covid is complicated. The reduced availability of beds may limit their access to ICU. Moreover, the prognosis may be poor, and airway management and ventilation strategies have to take into account various clinical and physiological characteristics specific to older patients. This book is addressed to all allied professionals involved in the management of older critically ill patients and presents information collected and practical lessons learned from the clinical daily management of this population during the pandemic.

Non-invasive mechanical ventilation complications : essentials for treatment and prevention by Antonio M Esquinas( )

3 editions published in 2021 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Noninvasive mechanical ventilation has managed to establish itself as the treatment option for a wide variety of causes of acute and chronic respiratory failure in different settings in hospital and home noninvasive mechanical ventilation. In the last decades, we have discovered its positive effects on gas exchange and symptoms such as dyspnea control, widely contrasted against endotracheal intubation. However, although this wide range of beneficial effects have been described, pathophysiology, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of noninvasive mechanical complications could not be forgotten for a correct application as they clearly affect patient outcome and mortality. Nowadays, there is a scarce number of publications analyzing noninvasive mechanical ventilation complications and this book is the first dedicated to its analysis. This book brings together a broad multidisciplinary vision of common and unusual complications, thus it serves as the original and essential scientific published reference on noninvasive mechanical ventilation complications. The present book has been structured to offer through its sections and chapters an exhaustive and in-depth analysis of noninvasive mechanical ventilation complications, mechanisms, direct or indirect factors determinants, key recommendations for the early diagnosis and treatment for most frequent applications from multidisciplinary perspective. Finally, we analyze noninvasive mechanical ventilation complications and how they impact in short- and long-term complications and mortality. The book concludes analyzing evidence in diagnosis, prevention and treatment. We believe that the readers of this book will find in it an essential reference for a correct application of noninvasive mechanical ventilation, and thus be able to improve results and prognosis. Only the precise knowledge of complications of noninvasive mechanical ventilation will allow us to achieve a proper application to success"--
Principles and practice of non-invasive mechanical ventilation monitoring : from intensive care to home care( )

3 editions published in 2021 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Non-invasive ventilation is the delivery of oxygen via a face mask and is used in the treatment of respiratory failure in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cardiogenic pulmonary oedema, and other respiratory conditions. Because patients rely upon ventilation systems to breathe, it is essential to monitor patients' respiratory function on an ongoing basis. However, this monitoring can prove to be difficult, particularly when patients receive ventilation treatment outside of the hospital and in their homes. As such, this book provides extensive detail concerning the monitoring of non-invasive mechanical ventilation systems in a variety of contexts"--
