Handbook of ICU Therapy (2nd ed.)

by Ian McConachie

This expanded and updated 2006 edition of Handbook of ICU Therapy builds on the success of the first edition and continues to provide concise information on a broad spectrum of issues relating to care of the critically ill patient. There are also several new, topical chapters. As with the first edition, it is equally applicable to anaesthetists, intensivists, operating department practitioners and anaesthetic/theatre/recovery nurses, and the heart of the book focuses on providing practical information in a readable and easily accessible format. All of the authors are directly involved in ICU practice and/or research and are familiar with the most recent developments in this fast-moving area of medicine.

In The Press

'… the book provides a practical, concise reference for the trainee in critical care medicine. … by its nature, critical care covers nearly all areas of inpatient medicine, making it difficult to produce a reasonably sized reference. The authors have done so and have wisely emphasised the underlying physiology of critical illness.' Journal of Anaesthesia and Analgesia
