Intensive care patients are the most critically ill in any hospital and they are a patient group that utilises a disproportionate amount of medical resources. Intensive care medicine, around for about 40 years, is a relatively recent but globally expanding specialty due to a growing geriartric population of discerning demand for health system. The older generation of intensivists are approaching retirement. The middle generation is trained in various medical specialties and then subspecialised in intensive care. These doctors now lead the way in clinical practice, research, management and training. On the other hand, the younger generation of intensivists includes an ever increasing number of doctors who, for the first time, enjoy a structured training program with clinical rotations, courses, and exam qualifications. Written by outstanding specialist practitioners who are also internationally acclaimed authors from the UK and North America, this is an authoritative guide to practical intensive care medicine. The clinical contents of the book share a practical and educational common thread with each chapter addressing pertinent clinical challenges comprehensively. This invaluable book is specially targeted at medical students, trainees in intensive care medicine and other acute specialties, consultants wishing to remain up to date on all branches of this vast specialty and other allied professionals practicing in intensive care including nurses and physiotherapists.

Management of critically-ill trauma patients presents multiple challenges that are unique to this patient population. Optimal management of the trauma patient requires establishing priorities of care, minimizing complications, and striving to return the trauma victim to the best possible functional outcome. Yet, most books devoted to trauma focus on prehospital care, the initial assessment of trauma patients, and operative management of specific injuries. Part of the Pittsburgh Critical Care Medicine series, this book will help intensivisits involved in the care of trauma patients implement best care practices for trauma victims in the intensive care unit. Chapters address issues such as: management priorities for trauma patients in the ICU, the use of monitors and drains in trauma patients, resuscitation from hemorrhagic shock, massive transfusions and coagulopathy, ventilator management of trauma patients including patients with chest trauma, as well as management ICU strategies and solutions for specific types of trauma, including traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, and burn management.

Pre- and post-operative care of transplant patients is an aspect of Critical Care Medicine in which most ICU physicians and nurses have received little or no formal training and are left to cope with this complex population with only spotty, incomplete 'on-the-job experience' as a guide. In response to this clinical knowledge gap, this book provides a concise 'at the bedside' resource for clinicians caring for abdominal organ transplant patients before and after surgery.

Recent changes to doctor training have increasingly led to foundation year doctors being rotated to Intensive Care Units (ICUs). Many doctors - along with nurses and allied health professionals new to intensive care - find that the standard texts on this challenging clinical environment are too comprehensive to provide an introduction or day-to-day reference. This simple bedside handbook fills that gap, providing a pragmatic guide to the basics of ICUs, patient management and emergencies. It also addresses recent and future developments in a variety of areas including organ donation, the Mental Capacity Act and management of the acutely ill patient. The book is divided into short, easy-to-read topics, which have clearly outlined learning goals and emphasise the continuities between intensive care medicine and other forms of care. Foundation, Acute Common Stem and Anaesthesia junior doctors facing their initial attachment in Intensive Care will find this essential reading. Nurses, pharmacists, physiotherapists and allied health professionals working in ICUs will also find it an invaluable guide.
