Editorial Reviews

"The third edition is a worthy update of the previous editions by this group of authors. The multidisciplinary authorship and the detailed text are clear advantages. Students and house officers will find this a good value in the intensive care unit with its acceptable cost and size. 3 Stars."--Doody's Review Service
