About the Authors
  • This popular handbook provides a practical guide to managing common and important problems in the critically ill patient, as well as sufficient background information to enable understanding of the principles and rationale behind the therapy without overloading the reader with detailed basic science. Fully updated throughout, this third edition of Handbook of ICU Therapy includes new chapters on coagulation problems in the critically ill, airway management, electrolyte and metabolic acid/base problems, optimizing antimicrobial therapy, chronic critical illness, recognizing and responding to the deteriorating patient, ICU rehabilitation, palliative care, neurotrauma, the comatose patient, the obstetric patient, endocrine problems, and care of organ donors. Authored by senior clinicians from both sides of the Atlantic, chapters retain the easy-to-read format of previous editions. Aimed particularly at residents and trainees starting out in the ICU or preparing for postgraduate examinations, this handbook also serves as a valuable refresher for established intensivists, anesthesiologists and surgeons.

    • A concise, easy-to-read format enables readers to assimilate key information quickly and easily
    • Chapters are authored by senior clinicians with considerable experience of managing ICU patients, providing an authoritative guide to common problems as well as important controversies
    • Contributions from both sides of the Atlantic ensure a text of international relevance

    Reviews & endorsements

    Review of previous edition: '… the book focuses on the current state of evidence-based practice … provides a practical, concise reference for the trainee in critical care medicine.' Anesthesia and Analgesia

    Review of previous edition: '… the book provides a broad discussion of the basics of ICU care, including excellent review chapters … Its most distinguishing features are detailed chapters about specific patient populations encountered in the ICU … it fills a niche for readers who do not want to delve into a full textbook of critical care but prefer more detail than the average ready reference.' Respiratory Care

    'For anyone starting in ICU this will be a useful primer. It will guide them through the rationale behind many ICU practices and provide helpful pointers for how to manage everyday emergency admissions. But don't be quick to dismiss it … it's a good book to have around, especially when called upon to give practice vivas.' M. Beed, British Journal of Anesthesia
