This compendium offers the reader a single source from which to review or reference the field of splanchnic circulation in the critically ill, focusing on its role of defining gut and hepatic function, and remote organ interactions. Clinically relevant outcome studies of novel and evolving diagnostic and therapeutic options are presented, and all chapters adopt a pathophysiologic approach and a futuristic format to pick out specific topics from the overall theme of splanchnic blood flow.
