Marinos The ICU book Latest Edition Ebook PDF
Marinos The ICU book Latest Edition Ebook PDF The third edition of The ICU Book marks its 15th year as a fundamental sourcebook in
critical care. This edition continues the original intent to provide a generic textbook that presents fundamental concepts and patient care practices that can be used in any intensive care unit, regardless of the specialty focus of the unit. Highly specialized areas, such as obstetrical emergencies, thermal injury, and neurocritical care, are left to more qualified authors and their specialty textbooks.
Most of the chapters in this edition have been completely rewritten (including 198 new illustrations and 178 new tables), and there are two new chapters on infection control in the ICU (Chapter 3) and disorders of temperature regulation (Chapter 38). Most chapters also include a final section (called A Final Word) that contains an important take-home message from the chapter. The references have been extensively updated, with emphasis on recent reviews and clinical practice guidelines.
The ICU Book has been unique in that it reflects the voice of one author. This edition welcomes the voice of another, Dr. Kenneth Sutin, who added his expertise to the final 13 chapters of the book. Ken and I are old friends who share the same view of critical care medicine, and his contributions add a robust quality to the material without changing the
basic personality of the work.
