Editorial Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:"This is the second edition of a review work covering core content in multidisciplinary critical care and featuring review questions. . Practitioners and trainees focused on critical care are the intended audience. . This edition has been extensively updated from the first edition published eight years ago. Approximately 15 new chapters have been added with a greater emphasis on problems of the surgical patient, host defense, and rehabilitation in the critical care setting. I enjoy and use this tool."
