The topics considered are wide ranging - particular attention is devoted to general topics of importance to the practitioner such as sedation,  sedoanalgesia, diuretics and other drugs correct use,  but specific controversial issues, such as the role of goal-directed hemodynamic therapy, or acute liver failure in intensive care, are also addressed.
