Oxford Handbook of Critical Care Summary

Oxford Handbook of Critical Care by Mervyn Singer

Of all the medical specialties, few if any are as exacting and complex as critical care medicine. All members of the multidisciplinary team caring for critically ill patients require a sound knowledge of physiology, pathophysiology, biochemistry, technology and pharmacology. The new edition of this enormously popular Oxford Handbook describes best practice in critical care in a succinct, concise, clinically orientated way. It covers therapeutic and monitoring devices, drugs and fluids, specific organ system disorders and complications, and general management philosophies. Ample space is provided to append or amend sections to suit local protocols and particular practices. The Oxford Handbook of Critical Care will serve the consultant, junior doctor, nurse or other paramedical staff as a reference book, aide memoire and handy pocket book providing rationales and solutions to most of the problems encountered.
