Reviews

“This book will benefit providers of acute medicine in all the core disciplines. Experienced practitioners will enjoy the perspectives in these reviews while students will find an effective introduction to topics selected to reflect latest advances in the field. … As COVID-19 dominates much of contemporary medical literature, this book describes recent developments outside that topic in clinical and basic research, supporting the broad practice of acute care for the internist, anesthesiologist, surgeon, pediatrician, and emergency medicine provider.” (David J. Dries, Doody's Book Reviews, October 16, 2020)
