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.
