“This book contains a wealth of useful, practical advice for clinicians working in the settings of critical care, intensive care, anesthesiology, neurosurgery, obstetrics, radiology, and perioperative medicine. It can be helpful for senior medical students, residents, board registered specialists, and critical care providers. Experienced intensive care physicians will also find advanced practical recommendations from other professionals who have developed experience in multidisciplinary treatment. … Overall, this is a well-written book with important information when managing critically ill patients.” (Liang He, Anesthesia & Analgesia, Vol. 129 (2), August, 2019)
