“Providing respiratory assistance and mechanical ventilation in neonates and children with different pathologies remains a difficult task for most physicians, despite extensive ICU training. A profound understanding of respiratory physiology and respiratory mechanics in different lung conditions is required, and also a good knowledge of all the instruments available to us. Analysing the interactions between the child and the ventilator, observing their physiological responses to our interventions, and knowing how to best apply the technology and advanced monitoring tools available is what matters the most at the bedside.
“This completely updated 2nd English version of the “Handbook of mechanical ventilation in Paediatrics” is based on the 5th Spanish edition of the handbook from the Respiratory Group of the Spanish Paediatric Intensive Care Society (SECIP- Sociedad Española de Cuidados Intensivos Pediátricos) released in 2018. It has been completely re-edited with the contribution of members of different Sections of the European Society of Paediatric and Neonatal Intensive Care (ESPNIC) and many professionals of paediatric and neonatal intensive care units from around the world. We would like to highlight and to thank the collaboration of the different ESPNIC Sections and working groups (Cardiac ICU and Mechanical Circulatory Support, Cardiovascular Dynamics, Nursing Science, Paediatric and Neonatal Care Nursing, Pharmacology, Quality improvement, Patient safety, and Long term outcomes, Transport sections and POCUS working group), led by the SECIP Respiratory Group and the ESPNIC Respiratory section.”
“A multidisciplinary approach has allowed us to improve, the quality, clarity and depth of many chapters, with updated content and graphics to the most recent scientific evidence.”
“As with the SECIP Handbook, that for almost 20 years has been a reference book for many Spanish-speaking doctors, nurses and respiratory therapists, our intention is to provide a better understanding of mechanical ventilation in critically ill children, and help improve their care. We hope that this new and improved English version makes this knowledge more accessible to healthcare providers worldwide, and that scientific societies, working groups and hospitals consider using it to support their mechanical ventilation education and core PICU/NICU training.”
