Concepts in Surgical Critical Care Book Excerpt:

"There is a significant shortage of critical care physicians across the US. For this reason, advanced practice providers (including advanced practice registered nurses and physician assistants) are being utilized more and more to bridge this clinical resource gap. However, APPs are trained as generalists and have limited specialization and exposure to the unique needs of perioperative critically-ill patients. Concepts in Surgical Critical Care is the only single resource designed specifically for APPs caring for this population. Featuring a user-friendly organization designed to quickly find what you're looking for, Concepts in Surgical Critical Care is the ultimate resource regarding the care of critically-ill perioperative patients. It starts with foundational critical care topics across all surgical specialties followed by the specifics within 12 - including the neurologic system, the cardiovascular system, the respiratory system, the vascular system, etc. The use of checklists, bold and italicized text, key concepts, clinical pearls, focus questions, case studies, simulations, illustrations, tables and figures to display complex topics, practice questions, chapter summaries, and suggested readings for further study aid in mastery of the subject matter"--
