Summary "As surgical critical care continues to evolve, this handbook provides the framework for the surgical intensivist, and focuses specifically on the surgical considerations encountered in the care of the critically ill patient. Drawing from decades of experience at one of the world's busiest and most innovative trauma/ surgical intensive care units, the handbook systematically addresses all aspects of surgical critical care. Chapters are presented in an easy-to-access, bullet point format, with each chapter ending in a practical algorithm and review of recent literature. This text will serve as a guide, learning tool, and reference manual for all levels of practitioners, from aspiring student to seasoned attending."-- Provided by publisher
