Request PDF on ResearchGate | On Jun 1, , Richard Branson and others published Principles and Practice of Mechanical Ventilation, Third Edition. After the publication of the first edition of Principles and Practice of Mechanical. Ventilation in , this book quickly be- came the established reference text for .
Presentations include significant detail, and each chapter contains an exhaustive reference list with an emphasis on original work dating to 2 years before publication. Black-and-white photographs and line drawings are reproduced with acceptable but not outstanding quality.
The table of contents groups chapters by type of content and lists authorship, whereas an extensive subject index of approximately 70 pages includes separate citations for figures and tables.
This second edition continues the role established by its predecessor as the leading work in the field. Mechanical ventilation, as a defining event of critical care, has seen an explosion of physiologic and outcomes research in the past decade.
Our thinking about management of acute respiratory distress syndrome, ventilator-induced lung injury, patient-ventilator interaction, and infectious complications has changed dramatically. All of this recent work is summarized here. You may be trying to access this site from a secured browser on the server.

We have come a long way in the field of mechanical ventilation as we have evolved from old methods, continue to refine known methods, and look to innovate new ones.
The third edition follows the second edition since The most obvious change is the addition of color, which gives graphs and tables more definition and pictures more character. The book has 68 chapters organized into 15 sections.
Many chapters also have a section on unknowns and future perspectives, which are important points, especially in a comprehensive medical text that will certainly have its contrarians.
The organization among chapters gives the reader a consistency that facilitates readability. The early part of the book provides a historical perspective of mechanical ventilation. This is followed by the physical science of mechanical ventilation and the design of ventilators. A third of the book is dedicated to the various methods of ventilation, from conventional to nonconventional.
In addition, topics cover how mechanical ventilation pertains to different clinical settings, physiologic effects, and airway management. This is followed by a patient-centric approach focusing on complications, monitoring, and management of ventilator-supported patients.
The final section covers adjunctive therapies and the ethics and economics of mechanical ventilation. The textbook is best viewed in the hardcover form. The list of authors is an impressive collection of experts from around the world who conduct research and are active in societies in addition to their clinical duties.
Every chapter is thoroughly researched and up-to-date. The expert minds give the reader a window into their thinking.
Many authors mention ongoing or recently completed research and clinical trials, and the new evidence will undoubtedly be presented in the next edition. Overall, the book is well organized and easy to read.
The chapters can be read separately if you are exploring a topic or the book can be read continuously for comprehension of all the topics. The chapters contain references to other chapters where needed, so repetition is limited. In a clinical sense, the authors of the chapter want to convey the importance of pathophysiologic concepts, applying knowledge and experience, and then making clinical decisions based on the all of the previous.
This premise is followed throughout that book. Background and data are presented first, and reader is guided into the decision-making process. For anesthesiologist, the book provides a perioperative bridge to the world of mechanical ventilation usually found in critical care settings. With this text, an anesthesiologist can become familiar with methods available on anesthesia ventilators. Other methods of ventilation may be worth reading about because many of the technologies found in the intensive care unit ventilator have crossed over to the current anesthesia ventilator.
