This monograph is intended to update relevant aspects and novel developments in mechanical ventilation that has occurred in recent years. The topics discussed include conventional and innovative ventilator modalities, adjuvant therapies, modes of extracorporeal respiratory support, and weaning from mechanical ventilation and noninvasive ventilation.
