Why write a book on the management of critically ill patients? Over the past few decades we have seen an enormous growth in the number of intensive care units (ICU) across the world. Indeed, it is estimated that a large proportion of health care expenses are devoted to patients in these specialized units. Medical students, r- idents, fellows, attending physicians, critical care nurses, pharmacists, respiratory therapists, and other health-care providers (irrespective of their ultimate ?eld of pr- tice) will spend several months or years of their professional lives taking care of critically ill or severely injured patients. These clinicians must have special tra- ing, experience, and competence in managing complex problems in their patients. Moreover, these clinicians must interpret data obtained by many kinds of monitoring devices, and they must integrate this information with their knowledge of the pat- physiology of disease. Even more important is the fact that anyone working in an ICU or with a critically ill patient must approach patients with a multidisciplinary team. The phrase there is no I in TEAM comes to mind.

Product Description

Review

From the reviews of the second edition: “This pocket manual, written in outline format, summarizes many of the key principles and formulas important in the intensive care unit. … Practitioners at all levels may benefit from this work, but … the most appropriate audience would be new critical care physicians arriving in the ICU with background training in physiology. … This handbook is a worthy introduction to ICU practice for novices who have had previous clinical rotation experience and training in physiology.” (David J. Dries, Doody’s Review Service, February, 2010)

From the Back Cover

The Handbook of Critical and Intensive Care Medicine, second edition, is a comprehensive, user-friendly guide for students, residents, fellows, and attending physicians who cover the ICU. The book's concise and up-to-date information includes frequently performed procedures and therapeutic guidelines that have great efficacy and relevance in everyday ICU rotations. For ease of reference, the chapters follow an outline format and are divided by organ systems as well as by special topics such as trauma and toxicology. Whether used bedside, in the office, at home, or on the go, the Handbook is truly a one-stop reference for all your ICU needs.
