Summary Developing sectors in the Intensive Care field - and in Critical Care Medicine in general - require specific levels of competence having a same common denominator: an in-depth knowledge of human pathophysiology. Although this volume presents plenty of topics in constant evolution, as witnessed by the collection of chapters compiled by several researchers, this edition includes, in particular, fields in which decision making at the patient's bedside prevails over theoretical argumentation. In other words, the first and foremost message this edition wants to provide, is for the reader to focus his/her attention on evidence-based medicine
