The Surgical Critical Care Handbook PDF – Guidelines for Care of the Surgical Patient in the ICU
This handbook considers topics that have general application to the critically ill patient. Basic pathophysiology and understanding of its role in critical care monitoring and management are covered, followed by a close look at trauma related and non-trauma related entities likely to afflict the critically ill surgical patient. The authors consist of practitioners who are experts in their field. They represent the team approach to critical care management where members from the divisions of anesthesia, internal medicine, respiratory medicine, infectious disease and surgical specialties all contribute in formulating intervention, assessment and management plans for the critically ill surgical patient. By emphasising the surgical conditions requiring critical care, The Surgical Critical Care Handbook will serve as a quick and easy reference for any medical trainee or practitioner aspiring to join the ICU.
