    Edited by Leo Heunks, Alexandre Demoule and Wolfram Windisch
    This Monograph, written by well recognised experts in the field, provides a comprehensive overview of pulmonary emergencies. A broad range of different respiratory emergencies is covered, from pneumothorax, pulmonary embolism, right heart failure and haematothorax to acute exacerbations of diseases such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Recent developments in treatment strategies for acute pulmonary problems are also discussed in detail, with chapters on topics such as high-flow nasal cannula oxygen therapy, extracorporeal carbon dioxide removal and noninvasive ventilation.
