Overview

The classic text in critical care medicine!

A Doody's Core Title for 2011!

4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!

"This is one of the leading textbooks in the field."—Doody's Review Service

The 3rd Edition of this classic text is streamlined and focused on the needs of the working critical care physician and features important new treatment strategies. Organized by organ systems, this text, the only critical care source that includes evidence-based learning, guides physicians from initial patient assessment and differential diagnosis through therapeutic plan.

The book contains predominantly black-and-white illustrations, with some color illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David J. Dries, MD (University of Minnesota Medical School)
Description: This is the third edition of a hardbound comprehensive multidisciplinary textbook of adult critical care.
Purpose: A review of pathophysiology is provided with discussion of procedures, disease states, and management strategies.
Audience: Practitioners and senior trainees are an appropriate audience for this work. While editorial leadership comes from the University of Chicago, leaders from the critical care community throughout North America provide substantial input.
Features: The 112 chapters are organized along traditional lines, beginning with an overview of organizational issues, general management strategies and an approach to critical care problems based on organ system patterns of presentation. Additional sections address the needs of the surgical patient both in high-risk, non-trauma situations and the specific challenges posed by the injured patient. Concluding chapters review recent developments in toxicology, critical illness in pregnancy, and morbid obesity. Chapters are well written and extensively referenced. Black-and-white illustrations and reproductions of radiographs are of inconsistent quality. References date to within one year of publication and focus on original work. A detailed table of contents groups chapters by subject heading and provides authorship. An exhaustive index of over 70 pages provides separate references for figures and tables.
Assessment: This is one of the leading textbooks in the field. With expansion in authorship and inclusion of new material, particularly on sepsis, delirium, ventilator-associated lung injury, bioterrorism, and disaster management, it is comparable to the recently released Textbook of Critical Care, 5th edition, edited by Fink, Abraham, Vincent and Kochanek (Elsevier, 2005). Important issues that receive scattered or incomplete discussion include compartment syndromes and management of the transplant patient. This is one of the core texts in our critical care training program.
Critical Care Medicine
Principles of Critical Care is a very thorough and well-written textbook that has been carefully edited by three masters of intensive care medicine….It succeeds in achieving that tricky balance of being thorough and complete yet readable and practical. It's the kind of book that benefits all intensivists and anybody dealing with the critically ill.”—Critical Care Medicine

Journal of the American Medical Association
The second edition of Principles of Critical Care is a significant contribution to the field. It should be placed not only in the critical care practitioner's library, but also in the rounds and nurses' conference rooms of critical care units.
David J. Dries
This is the second edition of a multiauthor textbook of multidisciplinary critical care last published in 1992. Pathophysiology of critical illness is reviewed along with detailed discussions of procedures and issues involved in the direction of the modern ICU. Critical care practitioners at all levels will benefit from this work. The editors are acknowledged experts in critical care from North America. The bulk of this material is provided by authors from the University of Chicago. Over 100 chapters and 1,700 pages are included in this single volume hardbound work. The text begins with an overview to organization of the ICU and continues with general management principles, cardiopulmonary critical care, infectious concerns, and other organ specific problems. The two concluding portions of the text discuss concerns specific to surgical disease in the ICU and other specialty problems, including pharmacology, obstetrics, dermatology, and environmental injury. Chapters open with an italicized summary of the key points. The book is organized into brief topics isolated by the character of type. Black-and-white illustrations and tables are frequent and reproduce well. Black-and-white photographs and radiographs reproduce with inconsistent quality. Each chapter concludes with a reference list, with citations dating to within two years of publication. References represent original work. The table of contents divides chapters according to general subject matter. An extensive index concludes the work with separate citations for tables and figures. Principles of Critical Care shows evidence of maintaining currency after the first edition. The authors have addedchapters dealing with new techniques in mechanical ventilation and other inflammatory problems while revising other standard chapters. In some cases, chapters appear to be little changed from the first edition with occasional insertion of new references. Reference format is also inconsistent among chapters. Despite minor production issues, this effort is a major update of an important secondary reference for the critical care practitioner.
