The book provides clear, step-by-step, evidence-based guidance on the practicalities of all the principal techniques, and advice is offered on indications for NIV, how to choose equipment, when to initiate therapy, and when to discontinue therapy.

The field of non-invasive ventilation continues to expand rapidly since publication of the second edition of Non-Invasive Respiratory Support, new controversies have arisen and numerous practical guidelines have been issued. This expanded third edition with new international contributors has been fully revised and updated. It builds on the success of the highly-regarded previous editions, detailing the role of non-invasive ventilation (NIV) in acute and chronic ventilatory failure, and the outcome of the intervention across a wide range of respiratory disorders in adults and children.

From a highly respected international author team, this book provides invaluable guidance to respiratory physicians, intensivists, anaesthetists, nurses, physiotherapists and medical technicians working in this area.
