Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David J. Dries, MD (University of Minnesota Medical School)
Description: This is the second edition of a collection of chapters on respiratory and intensive care issues from Harrison's Principles of Internal Medicine, 18th edition, Longo et al. (McGraw-Hill, 2012). The previous edition was published in 2010.
Purpose: It is intended as a focused review of pulmonary and critical care medicine with summary presentations for internal medicine physicians.
Audience: Students, senior trainees, and practitioners requiring a review of this topic are the intended audience for this work, which is written by leaders in the field in the U.S.
Features: Opening chapters describe the diagnosis of common respiratory disorders by symptoms, while a second group of respiratory chapters discusses specific diseases. The book then provides a general approach to critically ill patients, followed by a series of chapters on common critical care problems including sepsis, ARDS, shock of varying etiologies, coma, and the care of the neurologic patient. Concluding chapters describe fluid, electrolyte, and renal disorders, infectious disease concerns, and oncologic emergencies. Chapters are clearly written and make excellent use of tables and figures. A well-organized selection of images is also included. Plain radiographs reproduce with better resolution than CT scans. The appendix of laboratory values includes chemistries and pulmonary function testing. Review and self-assessment questions are provided with detailed answers. The subject index includes separate citations for figures and tables.
Assessment: This is a worthy improvement on the first edition. My greatest concern is the lack of references to highlight key studies reflected in these chapters. While several online tools are available to complement this book, readers deserve to have key primary citations readily available.
