This readable book gives an excellent overview of the subject, is well referenced and supported with good illustrations. I would highly recommend it as a basic reference and a practical guide for all trainees and physicians using an NIV service.

Anaesthetists will have much to learn from this comprehensive, state-of-the-art summary. Whether in the respiratory unit, intensive care unit or the anaesthetic office this book ought to be allocated a place on the shelf.

Excellant book on non invasive ventilation. A must have for specialist respiratory nurses and intensive care units. A very modern approach to acute and chronic intensive respiratory care without the need for intubation. It is easy to use and understand whilst in depth enough to suit all tiers of medical profession

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for any pneumologist 1 July 2007
By Bernardo San Martin - Published on
Verified Purchase
Wonderfully well written for its time and a good explanation about the machines that used to be the year it has printed. Lots of pictures and good tips about non invasive ventilation.
Deserves to be edited acconding the new equipments available nowdays and the new evidence supporting a wider use of NIV.
A must have for all respiratory health care providers.
