The approach of European research groups to mechanical ventilation is demonstrated in this book and current techniques are discussed. For each of these techniques, the rationale, indications, complications and results are indicated. Throughout the book, the emphasis is on practical information. Several new aspects of mechanical ventilation are discussed:ho w to ventilate patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome; weaning strategy and the causes of weaning failure; and ventilation in thoracic surgery. Straightforward guidelines are described for handling many of the difficulties encountered in the management of critically ill patients. This monograph on intensive care medicine and anaesthesiology is intended for the use of clinicians.
