Mechanical Ventilation, An Issue of Critical Care Clinics

It is not only our goal in the issue to review the basic aspects of mechanical ventilation, such as modes of mechanical ventilation, ventilatory monitoring, and weaning from ventilation, but we wish to also develop discussion on some of the common controversies such as alveolar recruitment and stabilization. This issue also addresses some of the cutting edge concepts of mechanical ventilation such as therapist-driven protocols to standardize our care within specific disease groups.
More and more, we use the education and expertise of respiratory therapists to provide a comprehensive team approach in patient management.
Introduction of computer-based closed loop ventilation will also surely change the face of critical care practice as we allow technology to aid us in the 24/7 environment of the modern ICU.
We have also started to address three major complex patient disease groups in this issue:massive chest trauma, the complex environment of the neurologic ICU, and the fast-track world of the cardiovascular patient. Aspects of each of these may have implications in the care of other less specialty- based patients. No issue of a monograph on mechanical ventilation
can be complete without focusing on a major question in our society, that of end of life. We are hopeful that this issue will be useful and spur broad-based discussion on how to wean mechanical life support during that highly emotionally charged period.
