Manual of Neonatal Respiratory Care 4th ed

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=3319398377]

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.



Pocket Manual of General Thoracic Surgery

[amazon template=image&asin=3319174967]

​This pocket manual is a quick-reference handbook for general thoracic surgery. It is organized into 9 chapters providing a concise, yet inclusive list of the most common pathologies seen in thoracic surgery: pre-operative evaluation, peri-operative care, lungs and airways (divided into 3 separate sections to cover the vast number of topics), pleural disorders, mediastinal disorders, chest wall disorders, thoracic trauma, and benign and malignant esophageal disorders.  The content of each chapter was specifically structured to make the handbook a high-yield reference that includes numerous management algorithms, flow diagrams, tables and images.  Unlike a comprehensive textbook, paragraphs are kept at a minimum and the written material is presented using lists and bullet points to facilitate learning and retention. More importantly, the content is evidence-based and highlights the various controversies in the field.

The Pocket Manual of General Thoracic Surgery is an irreplaceable educational tool amongst trainees and practicing physicians.
