Abstract
The Difficult Airway provides comprehensive textual and visual coverage of how to deal with patients who have expected or unexpected difficult airways. The book begins with a review of current definitions of the difficult airway, its incidence, and the evolution of algorithms to facilitate its management. The chapters that follow offer a comprehensive update on the techniques and concepts described in the American Society of Anesthesiologists' Difficult Airway Algorithm. Noted experts in each of the techniques have been recruited by the book editors to present the information. Figures throughout the book illustrate important points and procedures. This is a wonderful resource for health care professionals who are concerned with the management of the difficult airway, including anesthesiologists, intensive care physicians, emergency room physicians, nurses, and out-of-hospital first responders.

Abstract
The latest edition of this popular book covers the "how-to" of respiratory care of newborns. Chapters from the previous edition have been updated to reflect advances in both equipment and practice, while newer chapters reflect the evolving worldwide approaches to neonatal respiratory failure, such as sustained inflation, optimization of lung volume, and the use of volumetric capnography, aerosol therapy, and management of chylothorax. New additions to the book also include chapters on assessment of large data bases, implementation of quality improvement programs in neonatal respiratory care, chronic ventilation of the baby with non-respiratory failure. The text also features case studies for self-review and is illustrated with high quality radiographic images, figures, tables, and algorithms. Written and edited by international experts, the Manual of Neonatal Respiratory Care, Fourth Edition is a thorough update and remains a convenient source of practical information on respiratory physiology, exam techniques, tips for performing procedures, radiography, ventilation, pain management, transport, and discharge planning.

Over the last two decades, the increasing use of noninvasive ventilation (NIV) has reduced the need for endotracheal ventilation, thus decreasing the rate of ventilation-induced complications. Thus, NIV has decreased both intubation rates and mortality rates in specific subsets of patients with acute respiratory failure (for example, patients with hypercapnia, cardiogenic pulmonary edema, immune deficiencies, or post-transplantation acute respiratory failure).

Abstract
Over the last two decades, the increasing use of noninvasive ventilation (NIV) has reduced the need for endotracheal ventilation, thus decreasing the rate of ventilation-induced complications. Thus, NIV has decreased both intubation rates and mortality rates in specific subsets of patients with acute respiratory failure (for example, patients with hypercapnia, cardiogenic pulmonary edema, immune deficiencies, or post-transplantation acute respiratory failure). Despite the increased use of NIV in clinical practice, there is still a need for more educational tools to improve clinicians' knowledge of the indications and contraindications for NIV, the factors that predict failure or success, and also what should be considered when starting NIV. This book has the dual function of being a "classical" text where the major findings in the literature are discussed and highlighted, as well as a practical manual on the tricks and pitfalls to consider in NIV application by both beginners and experts. For example, setting the ventilatory parameters; choosing the interfaces, circuits, and humidification systems; monitoring; and the "right " environment for the "right" patient will be discussed to help clinicians in their choices.
Contents
1. Why I Ventilate a Patient Non Invasively -- 2. The Physiology of Mechanical Ventilation -- 3. (Almost) Everything You Wanted to Know About a Ventilator -- 4. The Interfaces for NIV -- 5. When to Start (or Not) Ventilation Treatment -- 6. How I Ventilate a Patient Non Invasively -- 7. How I Set a Ventilator -- 8. Other Modes of Ventilation -- 9. Why is NIV Good? -- 10. Myths, Prejudices and Real Problems -- 11. NIV in the Treatment of Acute Respiratory Failure: The Magnificent Five -- 12. NIV in the Treatment of Acute Respiratory Failure: Emerging Indications -- 13. NIV in the Treatment of Acute Respiratory Failure: Controversial Indications -- 14. Eight Rules to Remember When Ventilating a Patient Non Invasively -- 15. Tricks and Traps of NIV -- 16. Predictors of Failure -- 17. Where to Ventilate a Patient with NIV -- 18. Monitoring During NIV -- 19. How to Interpret the Curves on the Ventilator Screen -- 20. Chronic Mechanical Ventilation: Is There a Rationale? -- 21. Chronic Ventilation in COPD -- 22.
