Part Three, Monitoring During Mechanical Ventilation, discusses blood gases, hemodynamics, mechanics, and waveforms.

by Dean R. Hess, Robert M. Kacmarek. Essentials of Mechanical Ventilation is a true must read for all clinicians caring for mechanically ventilated patients.

Dean R. This book covers the essentials of mechanical ventilation of respiratory care patients. It tells the whys and hows of ventilation management and clinical decision making, but does not cover specific ventilators. Essentials of mechanical ventilation. Kacmarek, Robert M. Bookplateleaf.

This textbook on mechanical ventilation is intended for respiratory therapy students and practising therapists. After a thorough review of basic science principles, coverage focuses on the principles and practice of clinical management. Highlights include a special section on ventilator management, which includes a synopsis of disease entities, followed by a review of the role of mechanical ventilation in the effective management of the patient.
Purchased this book for an introduction into positive pressure ventilation and maintenance. It is a good resource, but unfortunately the author seems to switch between very elementary concepts and deep formulas at random. This wouldn't be so bad if used along with formal instruction, but it is not the ideal book for someone looking to teach themselves.
This book is a nice desk reference for a basic review of mechanical ventilation. The basic essentials in one location.
Very succint, fluid and easy to read and comprehend.Not intimidating either in size or content.

The concepts are very well explained.

Because I find it easy to read and more importantly,read again, I have made this as my primary book on mechanical ventilation.
I used this book to study for board exams after practicing critical care ventilation for 3 years. Used it more for the jargon and specific terms than for physiology; it gave me what I needed. I would have liked more example scalars / PV loops, etc. But it has a good basic review of physiology as it pertains to ventilation.
This book was a requirement for class. Book is extremely small for the price. I wish it had questions at the end of each chapter. A workbook would be great with this book. This book does not have the different ventilator brands and modes. For example - Drager, Servo, LTV1000 etc. Our teacher had to require another book just to go over the other brands.

Book needs - questions, workbook & chapters with specific ventilators.
I've just begun specialization in ICU and I found this text a very useful and simple approach to mechanical ventilation.

It contains all the basic notions you need to understand the base of ventilation in patients who need this kind of support.
Deodorant for your language
Working as a Critical Care paramedic in the Boston area I have had the oppurtunity to hear the authors lecture. Now I have the ability to use this book as a resource. I would recommend it to anyone who uses a vent. in their job.
Another required text for my program. It was very useful and I have referenced it many times. My only wish is that it were a little more in depth on physiological aspect of PEEP.
