Overview

This unique new resource combines an atlas of bedside procedures with comprehensive coverage of the monitoring of critically ill patients to provide guidance on all aspects of treatment*from the ER to the ICU. Over 120 line drawings offer step-by-step depictions of the most commonly performed procedures used by critical care specialists, surgeons, emergency room physicians, and CRNAs. The book's user-friendly format makes it a superb stand-alone resource, and its in-depth coverage of all aspects of procedures and monitoring makes it the perfect companion to SHOEMAKER ET AL: TEXTBOOK OF CRITICAL CARE MEDICINE.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David J. Dries, MD (University of Minnesota Medical School)
Description: This book covers critical care procedures, monitors, and the data obtained from this technology.
Purpose: A review of commonly used bedside procedures is provided.
Audience: Critical care trainees, particularly those in surgery, are an appropriate audience for this book. Teachers of these individuals may use some of this material for educational purposes.
Features: The book's 29 chapters are divided into two parts. The initial 20 chapters describe a variety of monitoring and vascular access techniques. Intraosseous infusion, placement of feeding tubes, bronchoscopy, and neurologic critical care monitors are also discussed. The second group of chapters describe data obtained from monitors placed with the use of this information to optimize cardiopulmonary dysfunction and resuscitation in critically ill patients. Chapters are clearly written with well-identified subheadings and ample black-and-white illustrations, which reproduce well. A reference list is provided, appropriate for the subject matter, with primary works dating to within three to four years of publication. The table of contents identifies only chapter topic and authorship. The index of seven pages includes separate citations for figures and tables.
Assessment: This book is similar in size and content to the procedure book accompanying Irwin and Rippe's Intensive Care Medicine (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 1999). Both works emphasize cardiovascular access and monitoring with little discussion of monitoring to assess respiratory performance, despite the prevalence of respiratory failure as a cause or a comorbid condition in ICU admissions. Readers are heavily exposed to the school of resuscitation toward supranormal oxygen transport parameters. This approach, while theoretically attractive, awaits conclusive support in various patient groups. The critical issue of quality assurance in pulmonary artery catheter monitoring is not discussed.
