Uncommon Problems in Intensive Care Book Excerpt:

Even the most experienced clinician cannot be expected to remember all the relevant details of so many and varied uncommon problems of the seriously ill. Some of these problems can be overlooked in even a major Intensive Care textbook, most can be found eventually in specialist textbooks but the impact on intensive care management might well still be disregarded. This book offers a unique approach. Uncommon problems relevant to intensive care have been gathered into a single volume, in which they have been described in sufficient detail to avert much of the need to refer to specialized texts. Moreover, their implications for intensive care management have been highlighted. The book is intended to provide an easy and practical reference, alphabetically arranged, for the clinician at any level faced with such problems at the patient's bedside.

Surgical Intensive Care Medicine Book Excerpt:

Surgical Intensive Care Medicine has been specifically designed to be a practical reference for medical students and house officers to help manage the critically ill surgical patient. The first section is titled “Resuscitation” and exposes the reader to a condensed version of generic topics in primary intensive care medicine. The sections that follow have been categorized according to medical and surgical subspecialties and cover the most germane of problems encountered in a tertiary surgical intensive care unit. Sections of certain chapters, while repetitive, have been left intact in an attempt to maintain the authors' messages and provide the reader with some contradictory but referenced views. The technical chapters describe a very introductory approach to various exercises such as airway management and vascular cannulation.

Clinical Intensive Care Medicine Book Excerpt:

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.

Infection in the Intensive Care Unit An Issue of Critical Care Nursing Clinics of North America E Book Book Excerpt:

Critical care units are high-risk areas which contribute to increased health care costs and increased patient morbidity and mortality. Patients in critical care units are commonly confronted with existing and the potential to develop infections. Critical care practitioners play a crucial role as initial providers to critically ill patients with infections through the delivery of timely and appropriate therapies aimed to prevent and treat patient infections. The responsibility of critical care practitioners include prudent delivery of care to treat current infections as well as ensuring the delivery of care does not increase the development of new infections. Aggressive infection control measures are needed to reduce infections in critical care settings. Dissemination of scholarly work on the topic of infection in critically ill patients can play a role in improving patient outcomes. The information provided on infections in this issue of Critical Care Nursing Clinics promotes the dissemination of current literature on a series of timely and relevant infection topics in critical care environments.
