Medical Ventilator System Basics: A clinical guide is a user-friendly guide to the basic principles and the technical aspects of mechanical ventilation and modern complex ventilator systems. Designed to be used at the bed side by busy clinicians, this book demystifies the internal workings of ventilators so they can be used with confidence for day-to-day needs, for advanced ventilation, as well as for patients who are difficult to wean off the ventilator. Using clear language, the author guides the reader from pneumatic principles to the anatomy and physiology of respiration. Split into 16 easy to read chapters, this guide discusses the system components such as the ventilator, breathing circuit, and humidifier, and considers the major ventilator functions, including the control parameters and alarms. Including over 200 full-colour illustrations and practical troubleshooting information you can rely on, regardless of ventilator models or brands, this guide is an invaluable quick-reference resource for both experienced and inexperienced users.

The practical reference book and guide to fans, ventilation and ancillary equipment with a comprehensive buyers’ guide to worldwide manufacturers and suppliers. Bill Cory, well-known throughout the fans and ventilation industry, has produced a comprehensive, practical reference with a broad scope: types of fans, how and why they work, ductwork, performance standards, testing, stressing, shafts and bearings. With advances in technology, manufacturers have had to continually improve the performance and efficiency of fans and ventilation systems; as a result, improvements that once seemed impossible have been achieved. Systems now range in all sizes, shapes, and weight, to match the ever increasing applications. An important reference in the wake of continuing harmonisation of standards throughout the European Union and the progression of National and International standards. The Handbook of Fans and Ventilation is a welcome aid to both mechanical and electrical engineers. This book will help you to... •Understand how and why fans work •Choose the appropriate fan for the right job, helping to save time and money •Learn installation, operational and maintenance techniques to keep your fans in perfect working order •Discover special fans for your unique requirements •Source the most appropriate equipment manufacturers for your individual needs Helps you select, install, operate and maintain the appropriate fan for your application, to help you save time and money Use as a reference tool, course-book, supplier guide or as a fan/ventilation selection system Contains a guide to manufacturers and suppliers of ventilation systems, organised according to their different styles and basic principles of operation

Written by outstanding authorities from all over the world, this comprehensive new textbook on pediatric and neonatal ventilation puts the focus on the effective delivery of respiratory support to children, infants and newborns. In the early chapters, developmental issues concerning the respiratory system are considered, physiological and mechanical principles are introduced and airway management and conventional and alternative ventilation techniques are discussed. Thereafter, the rational use of mechanical ventilation in various pediatric and neonatal pathologies is explained, with the emphasis on a practical step-by-step approach. Respiratory monitoring and safety issues in ventilated patients are considered in detail, and many other topics of interest to the bedside clinician are covered, including the ethics of withdrawal of respiratory support and educational issues. Throughout, the text is complemented by numerous illustrations and key information is clearly summarized in tables and lists.
