Principles and Practice series is a comprehensive review of the principles of ventilation and gas exchange in normal circumstances, and also chronic and acute reparatory failure. Valuable practical guidance is given on measuring pulmonary function during anaesthesia and muscle paralysis. Authored by an internationally respected specialist, and well illustrated throughout, the book includes the following key topics:
hyproxaemia and hypercapnia
reparatory mechanics during anaesthesia
ventilation, circulation and gas exchange
measurement of ventilation
lung volume measurement
mechanics of the respiratory system
Respiratory Measurement will prove to be an essential guide for anaesthetists, intensivists, pulmonary physicians, and all health professionals seeking a better understanding of the techniques of lung function testing.
