Reviews

From the reviews:

“A pocket guide to common critical care formulas and data that was first produced some 10 years ago. … Critical care practitioners at all levels are an appropriate audience for this work originating with two senior intensivists in the United States. … This is a quick pocket reference for acute care practitioners to use at the bedside or on rounds.” (David J. Dries, Doody’s Book Reviews, December, 2013)
