Core Topics in Critical Care Medicine, Hardback Book

Core Topics in Critical Care Medicine Hardback

Edited by Fang Gao Smith


The critical care unit manages patients with a vast range of disease and injuries affecting every organ system.

The unit can initially be a daunting environment, with complex monitoring equipment producing large volumes of clinical data.

Core Topics in Critical Care Medicine is a practical, comprehensive, introductory-level text for any clinician in their first few months in the critical care unit.

It guides clinicians in both the initial assessment and the clinical management of all CCU patients, demystifying the critical care unit and providing key knowledge in a concise and accessible manner.

The full spectrum of disorders likely to be encountered in critical care are discussed, with additional chapters on transfer and admission, imaging in the CCU, structure and organisation of the unit, and ethical and legal issues.

Written by Critical Care experts, Core Topics in Critical Care Medicine provides comprehensive, concise and easily accessible information for all trainees.
