The presentation focuses on the basic science behind critical injury and treatment. Topics include fluid and elec-trolytes, critical care support, multi-systemic disorders and critical care diseases. Pathophysiologic mechanisms behind critical injury are combined with core clinical content so the user may develop effective clinical judgement and formulate guidelines for patient assessment, diagnosis and treatment planning. 200 original conceptual drawings facilitate understanding; 82 multiple choice questions test compre-hension. Written for veterinary students and non-specialists in clinical practice, this is also a valuable resource for interns and residents preparing for their speciality board exams.
