About this book

This is an introduction to the patient monitoring technologies that are used in today’s acute care environments, including the operating room, recovery room, emergency department, intensive care unit, and telemetry floor.  To a significant extent, day-to-day medical decision-making relies on the information provided by these technologies, yet how they actually work is not always addressed  during education and training.   

 

The editors and contributors are world-renowned experts who specialize in developing, refining, and testing the technology that makes modern-day clinical monitoring possible.  Their aim in creating the book is to bridge the gap between clinical training and clinical practice with an easy to use and up-to-date guide.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“The monograph is comprehensive yet eminently readable.  The chapters are concise, but each is thorough without obvious weaknesses. … this text is a valuable resource for trainees who seek a more thorough understanding of some of the technology used in the hospital. … would be most at home in the library of a training program in emergency medicine, anesthesiology, surgery, or critical care medicine.” (Nicholas S. Goehner and Philip E. F. Roman, Canadian Journal of Anesthesia/Journal canadien d'anesthésie, Vol. 61, 2014)
