Extracorporeal Life Support for Adults
Gregory A. Schmidt
editore: Humana Press Inc.
This book presents a concise, evidence-based review of extracorporeal life support (ECLS) for adult diseases. It describes the use of ECLS with patients who are experiencing severe hypoxemic respiratory failure (ARDS and pneumonia), ventilatory failure (status asthmaticus and COPD), cardiogenic shock and circulatory or gas exchange failure following complications in cardiothoracic surgery, as well as its use as a bridge to lung transplant. Historically, clinicians have used ECLS as a last resort; however, this text details the technological improvements, evidence of improved outcomes and adverse consequences of alternative treatments that are causing this modality to be more commonly adopted. Topics include a description of the complex physiology and technology underlying ECLS; the evidence base for its use in specific clinical conditions; vascular access techniques; daily management of the circuit and patient; guidance regarding the weaning and decannulation process and recommendations for crisis management and rehabilitation related to ECLS. Extracorporeal Life Support for Adults is ideal reading for practicing physicians, nurses, perfusion specialists, therapists and critical care trainees who are considering whether to refer their patients for ECLS or are already providing ECLS and are seeking a practical reference to best practices and updated information.

Neonatal Respiratory Care Handbook
Elgloria A. Harrison
editore: Jones and Bartlett Publishers, Inc
Neonatal Respiratory Handbook is an excellent handbook which will illustrate the more common types of procedures that a respiratory therapist, new graduate or an experienced therapist would be expected to perform in the day-to-day operations of a highly specialized unit for children. This book is especially appropriate for respiratory students enrolled in a Neonatal/Pediatric class, particularly during their Neonatal and Pediatric rotation; Respiratory Educators and Residents, within a pulmonary medicine residency; and Respiratory graduates, orienting or completing their orientation in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) or Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU). Neonatal Respiratoy Handbook is a valuable tool, as it has all the necessary resources in one handy book. A helpful "how to" guide that a therapist would refer to time and time again, this book is simple and straight forward with numerous pictures and illustrations of various respiratory procedures and/or equipment. Additionally, this book goes a step further in that it looks at the major categories of Respiratory illnesses affecting this patient population and reviews the types of equipment appropriate to treat each disease entity. A skills DVD will also be included and packaged with the book as an added feature. Instructor Resources: TestBank
