Editorial Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:"This is the second edition of a multidisciplinary overview of the management of critical care problems in surgical patients. . Senior trainees and practitioners facing patients with surgical problems are an appropriate audience for this book, which originates from an international group of critical care authorities. . This book collects presentations from an outstanding group of international authorities. . Information about blood product use and recent work in resuscitation could be enhanced given the importance of these topics in the care of surgical patients." (David J. Dries, Doody's Review Service, April, 2010)
