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)
