The critical care unit is one of the most complex environments in the hospital, with huge amounts of data being generated from an array of high-tech equipment keeping acutely ill patients alive. The wide choice of drugs for each condition, combined with an array of other interventions to maintain breathing, circulation, sedation levels and nutritional status, mean that intensivists need a unique set of skills from several different areas of medicine. This can be a daunting environment for the trainee intensivist or anaesthetist. The aim of this collection of pocketbooks is to provide trainees and nurses in the ICU with practical, didactic advice on every aspect ICU medicine. Each title will be of 125-250 pages, follow a similar structure, be well illustrated where appropriate and provide practical treatment advice, with sections dedicated to the tricky clinical problems faced in the ICU.
