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.

Critical Care Nursing: A Holistic Approach (10th edition)

 Critical Care  Comments Off on Critical Care Nursing: A Holistic Approach (10th edition)
Feb 062018
 

 

The practice of critical care nursing has changed dramatically since its inception in the 1960s. Critical care nurses, more than ever before, must possess an extensive body of knowledge in order to provide competent and holistic care to critically ill patients and their families. Critically ill patients are no longer found just in intensive care units. Instead, they are cared for in the emergency department, in progressive care units, in postanesthesia care units, and in the home. Today, critically ill patients are liable to be older and sicker than ever before, thus demanding extensive knowledge to meet their complex needs. Advances in nursing, medicine, and technology; the rapidly changing health care climate; and the shortage of nursing staff and faculty are other factors that have come together to effect great changes in the practice of critical care nursing. Some of the requisite knowledge for the practice of critical care nursing can be attained through formal education and textbooks, like this one. The rest can only be gained through experience. It is our goal, with this 10th edition of Critical Care Nursing: A Holistic Approach,to assist readers on their journey by providing a comprehensive, up-to-date resource and reference. New to this 10th edition, the reader will find a special feature on genetics, more emphasis on evidence-based practice, and a more streamlined text that focuses on the most important knowledge and practices for the critical care nurse.

Minimally Invasive Acute Care Surgery

 Critical Care, Surgery  Comments Off on Minimally Invasive Acute Care Surgery
Feb 032018
 

 

This text is designed to present a comprehensive, up to date and safe approach to managing emergency general surgery patients with a minimally invasive approach. This book bridges the gap between the minimally invasive surgery (MIS) expert who may not routinely be involved in the care of the acute care surgery patient and the ACS expert surgeon who may not have a routine MIS elective practice.
The first section reviews the physiology of the acute care surgery patient and the physiologic impact of MIS techniques including pnemoperitoneum in critically ill patients. This review is crucial to assure that the surgeon has a clear understanding of when a MIS approach is safe and when it can be potentially dangerous to the patient.
The illustrations are presented in an atlas-style format to describe the surgical procedures. The authors of the various sections are minimally invasive and acute care surgeons from prominent academic centers. The format represents a narrative review with appropriate illustrations and links to online videos.
