Written in a clear and accessible style and now for the first time presented in colour throughout, this book enables the user to manage a patient in an ICU setting effectively without recourse to large text/reference works or specialized monographs. This thoroughly revised and updated edition reflects the best and most current practice from leading centres in Australia, the UK and Western Europe. Although primarily intended for the trainee and practitioner in intensive care, nurses and other allied health professionals will find that this is an invaluable tool in helping to deal with a broad spectrum of conditions encountered in the ICU.
