Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David J. Dries, MD (University of Minnesota Medical School)
Description: This is a softbound pocket guide for adult critical care.
Purpose: The author provides guidelines for daily care of patients in the intensive care unit. The therapeutic approach incorporates much of the current thinking in the critical care community.
Audience: This is a worthy tool for the student or trainee working in the critical care unit. It may also serve as a pocket guide to facilitate critical care education.
Features: The text is organized according to organ system, beginning with cardiopulmonary and continuing with metabolic, endocrine, gastrointestinal, neurologic, and infectious disease considerations. The final and largest portion of the book describes miscellaneous topics pertinent to the general practice of critical care. A brief table of contents introduces the content of each chapter. An index is provided for access to subtopics within each chapter. Chapters are written in outline form with major headings distinguished by prominence of type. Occasional figures and tables are provided. These are presented in black-and-white with good reproduction quality. References are not provided for either the book as a whole or with each chapter.
Assessment: The author provides a reference allowing access to the essence of many problems in adult critical care with an outline review format. Clearly, this is not a replacement for a reference or introductory text. The author reviews much of the current thinking in the management of common problems without providing his sources. Nonetheless, this is an engaging tool that could, if properly supported with background material, be useful in the setting of clinical training.
