About this book

The two previous editions of Applied Physiology in Intensive Care Medicine proved extremely successful, and the book has now been revised and split into two volumes to enhance ease of use. This first volume comprises three elements -- "physiological notes," “technical notes,” and seminal studies. The physiological notes concisely and clearly capture the essence of the physiological perspectives underpinning our understanding of disease and response to therapy. The technical notes then succinctly explain some of the basics of “how to” in this technology-centered field of critical care medicine. Finally, a number of seminal studies are provided on diverse topics in intensive care. Applied Physiology in Intensive Care, written by some of the most renowned experts in the field, is an up-to-date compendium of practical bedside knowledge that will serve the clinician as an invaluable reference source on key issues regularly confronted in everyday practice.

 

Reviews

From the reviews of the third edition:

“It is a compilation of papers summarizing the physiologic foundation of critical care medicine. Practitioners or senior trainees are an appropriate audience for this collection of papers written by world experts and selected by editors of the journal. … This volume reflects many of the technical developments in critical care over the past decade. The editors have selected papers for importance and clarity of presentation. This is an excellent reference for practitioners needing guidance in critical care physiology and treatment strategies for difficult problems.” (David J. Dries, Doody’s Review Service, October, 2012)
