This comprehensive reference for the Intensive Care Unit places its emphasis on bedside care. Practically organized, each chapter begins with a revamped "Immediate Concerns" section -- the most critical information is up front and easy to access, so there's no need to search in emergency situations. Completely revised and updated, the Third Edition provides more than twenty totally new chapters and twenty-eight new authors. All existing chapters have been meticulously revised with the most current information, and a restructured table of contents makes subject location even easier. New coverage includes: managed care and its effect on ICU practice; the most up-to-date ethics material; and current knowledge on the heart, lung, and heart-lung transplantation. The latest nomenclature is used consistently throughout the text. New sections include: Essential Physiologic Concerns and Modulating the Response to Injury. New chapters include: Work of Breathing and Respiratory Muscle Fatigue, The Inflammatory Response to Acute Illness and Injury, Oxygen Transport and Consumption in Critical Illness, Progression to Multiple Organ System Failure, Blood Saving Techniques, Sedation and Paralysis, Complications After Major Orthopaedic Procedures, Protecting the Practitioner, and more.
