"...goes a long waytoward establishing emergency physicians as credibleintensivists....The book is unique as it blendsthe perspective of a true intensivist with that of emergencymedicine. The book is the fi rst of its kind, and Ipredict it will become known as the standard referencefor those emergency physicians, as well as others, whowish to understand the overlap between emergencymedicine and critical care."--Thomas M. Scalea, MD, FACS, FCCM, R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center and University of Maryland School of Medicine (from the foreword)
