The groundbreaking text on critical care emergency medicine – updated with the latest evidence and recommendations
Critical Care Emergency Medicine has become the standard reference for all clinicians who wish to understand the overlap between emergency medicine and critical care. Much like the field of emergency medicine itself, this text is a collaborative effort involving emergency physicians as well as clinicians from trauma, critical care, infectious diseases, and pulmonary medicine.
Critical Care Emergency Medicine teaches emergency physicians everything they must know and do to better care for critically ill patients in an emergency department or to provide care in an ICU. Enhanced by numerous algorithms that speed decision making and full-color illustrations demonstrating anatomy and technique, this book is an essential practice tool.
Incorporating the wisdom of both academic and community emergency medicine experts, Critical Care Emergency Medicine, Second Edition delivers expert coverage of:
• Airway and Ventilatory Support • Pulmonary Disorders • Cardiovascular Disorders • Gastrointestinal and Renal Disorders • Neurologic and Neurosurgical Disorders • Hematologic and Endocrine Disorders • Infectious Disorders • Toxicologic Conditions • Ultrasonography in Critical Care • Special Considerations (including nutritional support, end-of-life issues, fluid management, and more)
If you are looking for an up-to-date, evidence-based text designed to take your critical care to the next level, your search ends here.
The latest edition of this handbook is a concise yet comprehensive guide for attending physicians, fellows, residents, and students who cover the ICU. The chapters follow an outline format and are divided by organ system, including neurologic disorders and cardiovascular disorders, and special topics, such as environmental disorders, trauma, and toxicology. The handbook includes thoroughly updated chapters from the previous edition, alongside completely new material.
Written by an authority in the field, the Handbook of Critical and Intensive Care Medicine, Third Edition is a valuable one-stop reference for every practitioner engaged in Critical Care Medicine across the world.

From reviews: ?This book is excellent. I have read a number of equipment related books and found most of them stale and filled with minutia. Instead this fresh look at equipment really makes it interesting to read and keeps your attention. With sections that give quick answers to how things work, advantages and disadvantages, in an easy to read format you get exactly what you want to know RIGHT away. In addition the full color photos and well done charts really add to the depth of this book. It is my opinion this may be one of the best books on the market for quick review of anesthesia and critical care equipment. Let’s be honest, no one is sitting at home reading equipment books for pleasure so when you NEED the information you likely need it right away. This book does exactly that; easy format, clear and concise information with everything you need to know about a piece of equipment easy to find and within a page or two. I would recommend this to all trainees in anesthesia but also for those providers who like to be prepared in the operating room to deal with any issue that might arise.” www.nurse-anesthesia.org, 8 Feb 2014
Equipment in Anaesthesia and Critical Care is written specifically for anesthesia trainees, including residents and nurse anesthetists in training.
The book is beautifully illustrated and features high quality color photographs throughout. The text is engaging and comprehensive, relating each piece of equipment back to its basic physics, mechanics and clinical context. The clear, concise and standardized format means that information is easy to access and perfect for reference and review. Every major piece of equipment is featured alongside color photos, reproducible line diagrams, and information on its uses, how it works, pros and cons, and safety considerations.
The authors have identified and tackled difficult subjects which are often glossed over or omitted in other resources, to produce a book that is comprehensive, engaging and to the point.

Improve your skills in visual diagnosis
Speed and accuracy of diagnosis is the key to saving lives in emergency and critical care medicine. Careful visual inspection of the patient, the data (radiography, electrocardiogram), and related clues can often help providers choose the right diagnosis and ultimately the best treatment – but this knowledge comes with experience. This book provides 110 randomly presented visual diagnosis cases for self-testing, imitating real-life situations found in the emergency department setting.
Written by distinguished emergency and critical care physicians, and thoroughly revised and updated throughout, this second edition includes 25% new cases and is an ideal aid for trainees preparing for Board examinations as well as an invaluable ‘refresher’ for qualified emergency and critical care providers.
