About this book

This text provides a high level, comprehensive but concise review of adult surgical critical care.  It can be used to review complex topics of critical illness in surgical patients, as a reference tool, or as preparation for a board examination.  It is focused on the surgical patient including high yield facts, evidence-based guidelines, and critical care principles.  To remain succinct, it concentrates on surgically relevant care.  Further, the text is written with an expectation that reader already possesses a basic understanding of critical care pathophysiology and clinical practices such as those acquired during residency.

Reviews

“This multiauthored, comprehensive book focuses on surgical patients requiring critical care services. Common problems requiring surgical critical care and complications which may require the input of a surgical intensivist are described, along with procedures commonly performed in the SICU. Trainees at all stages, from students to fellows of acute care surgery, or in disciplines providing care to the surgical patient are an appropriate audience. … Chapters are concise and clearly written.” (David Dries, Doody's Book Reviews, March, 2017)
