Summary "Extensively revised, expanded and updated, the format of the new edition has been radically altered to make the text even more readable and the information even more accessible. Comprehensive yet concise, the book provides a sound working knowledge of the discipline and is packed with information and is extensively referenced. Current evidence based guidelines for managing critically ill patients with complex pathophysiology and multisystem involvement are highlighted throughout."
"The book is intended primarily for trainees in intensive care medicine and has been designed particularly to meet the requirements of those preparing for examinations in this specialty. It is aimed not only at those embarking on specialist training in intensive care but also at trainees in other acute specialities who are increasingly becoming involved in the management of critically ill patients, and who may be sitting other postgraduate exams that include intensive care and acute medicine in the syllabus. The book will also serve as a valuable reference text for both trainees and qualified specialists."--BOOK JACKET
