This book will be written for all hospital based physicians, as well as those in training, who are engaged with patients in the intensive care unit. In addition to internists and surgeons, the primary beneficiaries of this information are likely to be residents, house officers, medical students and ICU nurses who require a concise, practical guide with up to date information on the most frequently performed procedures. The chapters follow an outline format and are divided by organ system, (neurological disorders, cardiovascular disorders), while providing the reader with the most essential points on each subject. Also, each chapter, as well as special appendixes, will contain quick reference guidelines such as drug tables, facts, formulas and lab values.
