This highly practical, problem-oriented handbook is intended for medical and nursing staff who work with critically ill patients, particularly in an intensive care setting. It offers a pathophysiological basis for understanding the hour-by-hour management of the critically ill. The major part of the book is organised around general clinical issues that are common to all patients in intensive care, including; fluid therapy, sedation and analgesia, monitoring, multiorgan failure and acute cardiovascular and respiratory failure. Later chapters are devoted to specific problems relating to particular organ systems, and to the special issues of paediatric and obstetric critical care. This
compendium of detailed practical advice is accompanied by an exploration of ethical problems, quality assurance and questions of outcome. Many informative figures and tables are included, and 'trouble-shooting' sections address common clinical dilemmas in intensive care. Designed for regular use and rapid consultation, it is the one reference all clinicians in intensive care will need.

Here's what you say about us...

'I like this book for its clarity and concision. It is a suitable starting point for anyone in the medical profession embarking on the complexities of intensive care … very definitely a useful on-call-room companion.'
Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine

'Those of us who run intensive care units (ICU) are faced with trainees of varying experience whose first question on the unit is 'What book should I buy?' I think that I can now tell them-this one … I recommend this text strongly … It is also extremely good value.' The British Journal of Surgery

'… a practical guide through the maze of common clinical conditions and problems which are found in the intensive care unit … The old adage 'more mistakes are made by not looking than not knowing' may be expanded to include 'more mistakes in the intensive care unit will be avoided by reading Clinical Intensive Care.' This book is an essential addition to all intensive care libraries.' Anaesthesia and Intensive Care

'I appreciated its pragmatic approach to complex problem solving … Its size, comprehensive coverage and cost should make it an attractive competitor for other well established texts in the same area … It should be well received, particularly in the United Kingdom, European and Pacific Rim countries for individual trainee purchase or as a small compact book to be left around in intensive care units and departmental libraries for reference.' Dr A. Bodenham, Anaesthetist

'The clinical content of the book is sound and comprehensive and the authors are clearly masters of their topic … a worthy addition to the burgeoning literature.' T. W. Evans, Journal of the Royal College of Physicians of London
