Reviews

“The Handbook of Critical and Intensive Care Medicine returns in its third edition with the inclusion of new material and extensive chapter updates. Intended for ‘practitioners engaged in critical care medicine across the world’, its up-to-date and concise summaries relating to much of the pathophysiology and treatment principles encompassed by intensive care medicine provide a valuable read for those working in this field. ­… It would be a useful reference text for all those involved in critical care medicine.” (Ned Gilbert-Kawai, British Journal of Hospital Medicine, Vol. 77 (11), November, 2016)

“This is that first quick read for more senior clinicians seeking a rapid update on an unfamiliar problem or for students entering the intensive care setting for the first time. … This handbook can be recommended for its consistent, single-author perspective reflecting the talent and experience of a senior clinician. The scope of presentations is broad, for example, the book addresses the oncology patient in the ICU, a topic not seen in many larger books.” (David J. Dries, Doody's Book Reviews, September, 2016)
