Mechanical ventilation is an essential life support for patients in the intensive care unit, emergency department and operating room who cannot sustain adequate homeostasis through spontaneous ventilation. This life-saving modality is implemented in a wide spectrum of clinical situations that result in respiratory failure, whether it be hypoxic or hypercapnic, acute or chronic. The wide breadth of causes of respiratory failure encompasses many specialties in both adult and pediatric practices: critical care medicine, pulmonary medicine, emergency medicine, anesthesiology, surgery, cardiology, neurology, and others. 
The book is of interest to all clinicians working in respiratory medicine, critical or intensive care, and anesthesia in hospitals and medical centers.
