Editorial Reviews

David J. Dries
This second edition of a multiauthored text reviews common facts involved in critical care management. Junior house officers and medical students will find a summary of common facts used to introduce critical care concepts in a question and answer format. The student or junior house officer is the appropriate audience for this work. Editors and contributors represent multidisciplinary critical care programs, with many of the contributors coming from the University of Colorado and the University of California, San Francisco. Topics begin with basic life support and fundamental procedures and span individual organ system considerations in the intensive care unit. Additional sections are devoted to surgery and trauma, perioperative care, radiology and emergency medicine support, toxicology, psychiatry, and administrative concerns. Tables are infrequent and illustrations rare. Each chapter contains a brief reference list of important but not necessarily recent work. Often reviews are cited instead of original studies. The table of contents divides chapters by organ system. A detailed index lists information reviewed on specific pages as well as broader topics covered by entire chapters. As the editors admit, this is not a standard text book. It provides many of the details contributing to a fundamental discussion of critical care topics. For deeper exploration and integration, a standard text book is necessary. Nonetheless, I found this an interesting collection of information bits, useful to anyone new to the ICU.
From the Publisher
"This book effectively uses a question-and-answer format to introduce core topics in intensive care medicine. The questions also will enable teachers to organize unit rounds, and students to recognize important concepts for common topics. " - David J. Dries, MD(University of Minnesota Medical School)
