Abstract
The past few decades have seen major impacts of different pandemics and mass casualty events on health resource use in terms of rising healthcare costs and increased mortality. In this context, the development of acute respiratory failure in patients requires the use of mechanical ventilation, either invasive or noninvasive. Recently, noninvasive ventilation (NIV) has proved to be a valuable strategy to reduce mortality rates in patients. This is the first book to describe the clinical indications of NIV in patients who have been hospitalized with high-risk infections as well as in the prehospital management of mass casualty incidents, including chemical or biological disasters and pandemics. Compiled by internationally respected experts, it offers comprehensive coverage of all aspects of noninvasive mechanical ventilation in public health emergencies, such as equipment needs and guidelines for health organizations. Considering recent events (SARS, H1N1 influenza pandemic), the book concludes with a critical review of current studies and future prospects for the use of NIV, offering a valuable resource for all practitioners managing mass casualty incidents and disasters.

Abstract
This book covers up-to-date evidence of Rapid on-site evaluation (ROSE) for diagnosis of rare disease and used combined with metagenomic sequencing technique in clinical scenarios. ROSE has becoming an efficient interventional diagnostics tool and important reference for lung diseases differentiation, increasing the adequacy rate, diagnostic yield and accuracy of the interventional pulmonary procedures. ROSE has its value in the field of evaluating sampling adequacy for further immunohistochemistry, microbiology studies, flow cytometry analysis, and molecular assays; DNA analysis of biopsy specimens using sequencing technique is performed to provide clue of etiology, which is an emerging pathway for clinical dilemmas. The first part of the book discusses the principals of performing ROSE procedures and reviews the basic concepts and summarized knowledge of key anatomical structures in lung. Figures of ROSE cytopathology, together with clinical data, results of metagenomic sequencing technique are presented to demonstrate how the difficulties in clinical practice could be tackled with the help of advanced techniques. Further application direction and perspective are also discussed, which provides researchers with more insights on the discipline and techniques. This book is part of the 4-volume collection ROSE in Diagnostic Interventional Pulmonology.
