Intensive care patients are the most critically ill in any hospital and they are a patient group that utilises a disproportionate amount of medical resources. Intensive care medicine, around for about 40 years, is a relatively recent but globally expanding specialty due to a growing geriartric population of discerning demand for health system. The older generation of intensivists are approaching retirement. The middle generation is trained in various medical specialties and then subspecialised in intensive care. These doctors now lead the way in clinical practice, research, management and training. On the other hand, the younger generation of intensivists includes an ever increasing number of doctors who, for the first time, enjoy a structured training program with clinical rotations, courses, and exam qualifications. Written by outstanding specialist practitioners who are also internationally acclaimed authors from the UK and North America, this is an authoritative guide to practical intensive care medicine. The clinical contents of the book share a practical and educational common thread with each chapter addressing pertinent clinical challenges comprehensively. This invaluable book is specially targeted at medical students, trainees in intensive care medicine and other acute specialties, consultants wishing to remain up to date on all branches of this vast specialty and other allied professionals practicing in intensive care including nurses and physiotherapists.

This new edition provides an accessible account of the essentials of intensive care medicine. The core of the book focuses on areas common to all critically ill patients including fluid therapy, sedation, shock, infection and other central topics. This key understanding of basic pathophysiological principles provides an excellent launch pad for the section on individual disease entities encompassing haematology, gastroenterology, nephrology, endocrinology, the respiratory system, cardiovascular pathology, poisoning and neurology. Economic and ethical issues are also covered, and the text is supported by numerous problem-oriented guidelines to help the care provider tackle real-life practical problems as encountered in the ICU. In the same spirit, wherever possible, the authors provide precise and meaningful advice, rather than bland generalisations. This new edition reflects the excitement, challenges and uniqueness of intensive care medicine, for the benefit of all residents, trainees, nursing staff and paramedics attached to the ICU.

Recent changes to doctor training have increasingly led to foundation year doctors being rotated to Intensive Care Units (ICUs). Many doctors - along with nurses and allied health professionals new to intensive care - find that the standard texts on this challenging clinical environment are too comprehensive to provide an introduction or day-to-day reference. This simple bedside handbook fills that gap, providing a pragmatic guide to the basics of ICUs, patient management and emergencies. It also addresses recent and future developments in a variety of areas including organ donation, the Mental Capacity Act and management of the acutely ill patient. The book is divided into short, easy-to-read topics, which have clearly outlined learning goals and emphasise the continuities between intensive care medicine and other forms of care. Foundation, Acute Common Stem and Anaesthesia junior doctors facing their initial attachment in Intensive Care will find this essential reading. Nurses, pharmacists, physiotherapists and allied health professionals working in ICUs will also find it an invaluable guide.
