Handbook of Critical and Intensive Care Medicine 3rd Edition
Medical students, residents, fellows, attending physicians, critical care nurses, pharmacists, respiratory therapists, and other health-care providers (irrespective of their ultimate field of practice) will spend several months or years of their professional lives, taking care of critically ill or severely injured patients.But hardly few of them knew the basics of icu care , So author thought of writing Handbook of Critical and Intensive Care Medicine 3rd Edition.
These clinicians must have special training, experience, and competence in managing complex problems in
their patients. Moreover, these clinicians must interpret data obtained by many kinds of monitoring devices, and they must integrate this information with their knowledge of the pathophysiology of disease. Even more important is the fact that anyone working in an ICU or with a critically ill patient must approach patients with a multidisciplinary team.
This 3rd edition of Handbook of Critical and Intensive Care Medicine book is written for every practitioner engaged in Critical Care Medicine across the world. Author have attempted to present basic and generally accepted clinical information, my own personal experience in the field, facts and some important formulas, as well as laboratory values and tables which we feel will be useful to the practitioner of Critical Care Medicine
The chapters of this Handbook of Critical and Intensive Care Medicine 3rd Edition book follow an outline format and are divided by organ-system (i.e., neurologic disorders, cardiovascular disorders), as well as special topics (i.e., environmental disorders, trauma, toxicology). Every chapter has been updated and many chapters are completely new.
It is important for the reader of this Handbook of Critical and Intensive Care Medicine 3rd Edition to understand that Critical Care Medicine is not a static field and changes occur every day.
Therefore, this handbook of critical care is not meant to define the standard of care, but rather to be a general guide to current clinical practice used in Critical Care Medicine.Author wrote this book hoping that it will benefit thousands of critically ill patients, but more importantly that it will aid practicing clinicians to assume a multidisciplinary approach.
