Summary This book will familiarize not only physicians but also nurses and respiratory therapists with the concepts that underlie mechanical ventilation. A conscious attempt has been made to emphasize medical physiology throughout the book, in order to specifically address the hows and whys of mechanical ventilation. At the same time the book incorporates the current strategies for the mechanical ventilation of patients with specific disorders; this should be of some use to the specialists practicing in their respective ICUs
