Bedside Procedures in the ICU

Editors: Falter, Florian (Ed.)

  • A portable, practical book on bedside procedures in ICU
  • ICU is an environment with a high incidence of interventions, most textbooks mention them but do not provide detailed guidance how to perform them, when to perform them and how to assess it after the procedure
  • There are a number of highly specialised books in various subspecialities (neuro-ICU, cardiac ICU…) that explain certain procedures
  • However, these books are too specialised for the general intensivist
  • This book aims to give step-by-step guidance as to what can be done and how it is to be done across all subspecialities
