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 how`s and why`s 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.
