About this book

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.

Reviews

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)
