Patients in Critical Care Departments require constant and intensive care, and their conditions are always serious and can quickly turn for the worse, demanding quick and effective intervention. The bedside is a maze of monitors, tubing, and ventilators, all of which demand a knowledge ofcomplex levels and settings. Because of these factors, students and hospital staff need a manual that provides authoritative, easily accessed information on assessment, treatment, and management of critical conditions. This new Oxford American Handbook of Critical Care is the perfect resource forthese critical settings.
