This is the second title in this series of focused texts to be regularly published following the clinical meetings of the Intensive Care Society. Special topics of current interest in critical care are presented and debated. Rather than published proceedings of the meetings, these are written up and edited following the meeting, making them coherent and useful books for the practising intensivist, and those from other specialties undertaking training in critical care.
