Clinical Airway Management
An Illustrated Case-Based Approach
Basem Abdelmalak, D. John Doyle
editore: Cambridge University Press
The consequences of failure to adequately oxygenate a patient and ventilate their lungs during surgery can be catastrophic. Taking a uniquely case-based approach to clinical airway management, this textbook provides a comprehensive and richly illustrated guide to this vital component of anesthetic practice. The clinically diverse cases include practical guidance on the choice of management technique, airway device, its placement, associated medications and mode of ventilation, and cover important advances in equipment and scientific knowledge to keep clinicians up to date on recent developments in the field. As well as upper airway problems, this text also encompasses the management of less commonly discussed lower airway challenges. The written material is supplemented by links to additional online videos. Written by an international collection of leading experts, Clinical Airway Management is a useful and extensive resource that helps anesthesiologists, emergency physicians, intensivists and trainees navigate the challenges faced every day in clinical practice.

La ventilazione meccanica non invasiva
editore: Edizioni Medico-Scientifiche
La ventilazione meccanica non invasiva è una metodica cha ha avuto enorme successo negli ultimi venti anni. Il medico dell'urgenza, per la sua naturale collocazione, è per primo chiamato a conoscerla e applicarla dal momento che può risultare anche "salva vita". Questo manuale propone uno studio accurato circa gli aspetti di fisiopatologia, che sono alla base dell'evento acuto, per permettere un intervento terapeutico caratterizzato sempre dalla "filosofia della minore invasività possibile". I contenuti sono trattati nel modo più semplice possibile, per essere compresi agevolmente anche da parte del "non specialista", quale spesso è il medico d'urgenza. È inoltre uno strumento aggiornato e ricco di immagini, a supporto dei corsi formativi che il gruppo "NIV - SIMEU" svolge sul territorio nazionale.
ABC of Sepsis
Ron Daniels, Tim Nutbeam
editore: Wiley-Blackwell (an imprint of John Wiley & Sons Ltd)
The importance of early prevention and treatment of sepsis has never been greater. In the UK alone sepsis contributes to more deaths than lung cancer, from bowel cancer and breast cancer combined, and approximately one third of patients who suffer from severe sepsis die. The ABC of Sepsis provides a much needed introduction and an invaluable aid in the increasing efforts to reduce hospital infection and improve patient safety. As growing numbers of junior medical staff experience emergency medicine, critical care and acute medicine as part of the Foundation Programme, there is an increasing need to develop the skills required to treat severe sepsis. The editors are involved with the Survive Sepsis campaign - developed to improve the recognition, diagnosis and treatment of sepsis - and are perfectly placed to guide junior medics, GPs, specialist nurses, critical care nurses and primary care staff through this core aspect of acute medicine.
Resuscitation and Stabilization of the Critically Ill Child
Derek S. Wheeler, Hector R. Wonge altri
editore: Springer London Ltd
The care of the critically ill or injured child begins with timely, prompt, and aggressive res- citation and stabilization. Ideally, stabilization should occur before the onset of organ failure in order to achieve the best possible outcomes. In the following pages, an international panel of experts provides an in-depth discussion of the early recognition, resuscitation, and stabilization of the critically ill or injured child. Once again, we would like to dedicate this textbook to our families and to the physicians and nurses who provide steadfast care every day in pediatric intensive care units across the globe. Derek S. Wheeler Hector R. Wong Thomas P. Shanley V Preface to Pediatric Critical Care Medicine: Basic Science and Clinical Evidence The ? eld of critical care medicine is growing at a tremendous pace, and tremendous advances in the understanding of critical illness have been realized in the last decade. My family has directly bene? ted from some of the technological and scienti? c advances made in the care of critically ill children. My son Ryan was born during my third year of medical school. By some peculiar happenstance, I was nearing completion of a 4-week rotation in the newborn intensive care unit (NICU). The head of the pediatrics clerkship was kind enough to let me have a few days off around the time of the delivery-my wife, Cathy, was 2 weeks past her due date and had been scheduled for elective induction.
