Mar 242018
 

Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) is a procedure that uses a machine to take over the work of the lungs and sometimes the heart. The system provides heart-lung bypass support using a pump to circulate blood through an artificial lung back into the bloodstream, providing enough oxygen to the patient, whilst allowing time for the lungs and heart to rest or heal during or after serious illness. ECMO is often used for babies, but can also be used for children and adults (Medline Plus). The techniques for ECMO require professionals from multidisciplinary background to be involved in the procedure. This practical manual is a comprehensive guide to ECMO. Divided into eleven sections, the book begins with an introduction to the procedure and equipment. The following sections provide step by step discussion on initiation, maintenance of support and monitoring, and techniques of ECMO for different case scenarios. The final sections present multiple choice questions for self assessment and extensive appendices. Key points Comprehensive guide to Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO)Highly relevant for intensivists, anaesthesiologists, surgeons, paediatricians and cardiologistsIncludes section of multiple choice questions for self assessmentMore than 186 full colour images and illustrations.

Critical Care Nutrition Therapy for Non-nutritionists

 Critical Care  Comments Off on Critical Care Nutrition Therapy for Non-nutritionists
Mar 202018
 

This book offers a pragmatic approach to day-to-day metabolic and nutritional care based on physiological considerations. Due to the numerous controversial trials published in the last 15 years, there is no clear guidance for intensive care physicians regarding the metabolic and nutritional management of patients. This has resulted in a return to underfeeding and related complications in most ICUs worldwide as shown by the latest Nutrition Day data.
Using a structured, logical approach, the book examines practical solutions for artificial feeding in complex areas of critical care (brain injuries, burns, cardiac failure, ECMO, intestinal failure, long term patient, renal failure, metabolic diseases, obesity, old patients) and discusses measurement of the results of metabolic interventions. It also includes dedicated chapters focusing on specific problems, in order to avoid complications. Critical Care Nutrition Therapy for Non-nutritionists is a valuable resource for all general ICUs and ICU subspecialties such as cardiovascular, neuro, gastrointestinal and burns ICUs.

Mayo Clinic Critical Care Case Review

 Critical Care  Comments Off on Mayo Clinic Critical Care Case Review
Mar 112018
 

Mayo Clinic Critical Care Case Review is a unique compellation of cases presented at the highly rated Mayo Clinic Clinical Pathological Case (CPC) Conference. Designed to cover rare cases in a short amount of time, these reviews are set up in what is called the “unknown” format: highlighting the clinically key elements of the patient’s hospital course, singling out the diagnostic dilemmas, and concludes with a question and answer format that allows clinicians to take home relative points for clinical practice.

Written by practicing intensivists and critical care fellows for practicing intensivists and critical care fellows, this book combines interesting reading experiences with critical care medicine review. Each chapter ends with questions and answers that provide a board style review for the readers. Each case begins on the left-hand page with the discussion on the right, written succinctly to provide quick diagnostic understanding. While most critical care review books focus solely on an organ-system format, Mayo Clinic Critical Care Case Review captures the spirit of the CPC Conference in its text and illustrations.

Clinical Intensive Care Medicine

 Critical Care  Comments Off on Clinical Intensive Care Medicine
Feb 142018
 

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.

Readership: Doctors, nurses and physiotherapists specialising in intensive care medicine, doctors in acute medical specialties and medical students.
