Summary
  • Critical care is a specialty that treats seriously ill patients with a diverse range of diseases and/or injuries affecting every organ system. The critical care unit can initially be a daunting environment, with complex monitoring equipment and large volumes of clinical data to be interpreted. --
  • Core Topics in Critical Care Medicine is a practical and comprehensive guide both to clinicians and allied health professionals working in the intensive care environment. The first section outlines the principles and fundamentals underlying the work in critical care. It guides clinicians in both the initial assessment and the clinical management of critically ill patients, demystifying the critical care unit. --
  • The second section includes the full spectrum of disorders likely to be encountered in critical care, including obstetric and paediatric emergencies. Additional chapters cover the transfer and admission of sick patients, imaging technology in critical care, structure and organization of the critical care unit, and ethical and legal issues. The final chapters concentrate on advanced training in intensive care and give examples of mock MCQs and vivas in UK and European Diploma in Intensive Care examinations. --
  • Written by critical care experts and containing all the information needed to provide overall care of the critically ill patient, Core Topics in Critical Care Medicine provides comprehensive, concise and easily accessible information for trainees from all backgrounds. --Book Jacket
