Surgical Critical Care Therapy A Clinically Oriented Practical Approach Ebook PDF download The field of surgical critical care is constantly expanding, evolving, and undergoing rapid change.
Providers are experiencing increasing volumes of complex surgical cases and clini-
cally challenging postoperative patients from a wide variety of surgical subspecialties. With
the introduction of new technologies, less invasive surgery, balanced resuscitation strategies,and an aging population, updating and communicating improved care techniques for the critially ill surgical patient are crucial. As critical care providers, our goal is to deliver optimal, evidence-based care supported by relevant policies and data; however, there is no comprehensive source that provides concise and practical guidance to surgical intensivists and multidisiplinary ICU team members.
The Surgical Critical Care Therapy textbook will provide a comprehensive, state-of-the-art
review of the field and will serve as a valuable resource for clinicians, surgeons, and research-
ers with an interest in surgical critical care. The chapters focus on the management of common problems and critical decision-making scenarios that arise in the Surgical Intensive Care Unit.
Surgical Critical Care Therapy A Clinically Oriented Practical Approach Ebook PDF download For example, several well-designed randomized prospective trials have recently altered the way we care for surgical patients presenting with traumatic brain injury, hemorrhagic shock, acute respiratory distress syndrome, and sepsis. The protocols, care bundles, guidelines, and checklists that show improved process measures and patient outcomes will be discussed in detail throughout the book.
We hope that this textbook will help guide patient management and stimulate future investigative efforts. Each chapter is written by widely recognized and established experts in the field who share numerous tips and wisdom gained over the course of their careers. We also believe that this textbook will become an invaluable resource for residents preparing for their in-service exams or the critical care portions of their general surgery board exams and for all fellowship-trained intensivists who are taking the surgical critical care board examinations.
We wish to thank the professional editorial efforts of Springer and to acknowledge our
peers and family members for their support throughout this project. Without the help of so
many, this project could not have been brought to fruition.
