About this book

This book provides a comprehensive guide to delivering analgesia and sedation to critically ill patients for professionals and caregivers being involved in the management of these patients. It discusses and explains in detail the advantages and limitations of each drug and device using clear flowcharts, diagrams and tables.

Furthermore, it explores the new drugs and – above all – new sedation delivery systems, particularly those for administering volatile anesthetics on ICUs. This book is a valuable and practical resource for anesthesists, intensivists and emergency physicians interested in sedation.

“Critical Care Sedation is a concise, reader friendly textbook that provides new insights and a valuable overview of delivering analgesia and sedation to critically ill patients. It serves as a practical reference guide for trainees, residents, and experienced intensive care providers.” (Ottokar Stundner and Marc Moritz Berger, Anesthesia & Analgesia, Vol. 27 (06), December, 2018)

“This focused monograph presents the physiology, pharmacology and clinical implications of sedating agents in the critical care unit. The purpose is to present strategies for the use and monitoring of sedation and the avoidance of complications, particularly delirium. Senior trainees and staff providers in multidisciplinary critical care units are an appropriate audience for this work … .” (David J. Dries, Doody's Book Reviews, April, 2018)
