Brief Overview of the Book:

This popular handbook provides a practical guide to managing common and important problems in the critically ill patient, as well as sufficient background information to enable understanding of the principles and rationale behind the therapy without overloading the reader with detailed basic science. Fully updated throughout, this third edition of Handbook of ICU Therapy includes new chapters on coagulation problems in the critically ill, airway management, electrolyte and metabolic acid/base problems, optimizing antimicrobial therapy, chronic critical illness, recognizing and responding to the deteriorating patient, ICU rehabilitation, palliative care, neurotrauma, the comatose patient, the obstetric patient, endocrine problems, and care of organ donors. Authored by senior clinicians from both sides of the Atlantic, chapters retain the easy-to-read format of previous editions. Aimed particularly at residents and trainees starting out in the ICU or preparing for postgraduate examinations, this handbook also serves as a valuable refresher for established intensivists, anesthesiologists and surgeons.

  • A concise, easy-to-read format enables readers to assimilate key information quickly and easily
  • Chapters are authored by senior clinicians with considerable experience of managing ICU patients, providing an authoritative guide to common problems as well as important controversies
  • Contributions from both sides of the Atlantic ensure a text of international relevance

Reviews from Amazon

"This is a well organized set of lecture notes. An advantage is the quick read and effective summary of controversies and cutting-edge critical care." Doody's Review Service

"At its core, the book provides a broad discussion of the basics of ICU care, including excellent review chapters on the physiology of acute illness, mechanical ventilation, shock states, and fluid and electrolyte management...Its most distinguished features, however, are detailed chapters about specific patient populations encountered in the ICU..." Jeremy C Pamplin, MD, Respiratory Care
