This book is a comprehensive guide to critical care medicine for postgraduate medical students.
Presented in a case-based, question and answer format, the text begins with guidance on patient examination in the intensive care unit (ICU).
Each of the following chapters covers a different disorder, from acute severe asthma, pulmonary embolism and septic shock, to traumatic brain injury, acute liver failure and much more.
The book concludes with cases examining out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, brain death and organ donation, as well as end-of-life care in the ICU.
A large selection of Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) practice questions are included to assist students in their preparation for examinations.
Nearly 300 clinical photographs, illustrations and tables further enhance learning.
