The Little ICU Book Second edition 2017 pdf

The Little ICU Book Second edition 2017 pdf retains the intent of the first edition; i.e., to create a distilled
the version of the parent textbook, The ICU Book, that presents the essentials of critical care practice in a succinct and easily retrievable format. The organization and chapter titles in the “little book” mirror those in the “big book”, but all the chapters have been rewritten and updated, with a heavy emphasis on the recommendations in evidence-based clinical practice guidelines.

This The Little ICU Book Second edition 2017 pdf also bears the fruits of a collaboration with Sam Galvagno, DO, Ph.D., who lent his wisdom and encyclopedic knowledge to several chapters in the text. The Little ICU Book may be short in stature, but it is a densely packed, generic resource for the care of critically ill adults in an ICU.
