Terapia intensiva e critical care

Paediatric Intensive Care

Kevin Morris, Peter Barry
e altri

editore: Oxford University Press

pagine: 944

One in 70 children are admitted to paediatric intensive care (PIC) at some time during childhood. Most paediatric junior doctors will rotate through PIC, and will be involved in organising acute intensive care for critically ill children. The range of children and their illnesses going through PIC is vast, making it a hugely diverse specialty. A critically ill child will end up there regardless of their underlying disease, and as a result consultants in PIC must be true generalists and need to acquire knowledge and skills in all areas of paediatrics, as well as acquiring significant knowledge of anaesthesia and surgery. From setting up the ventilator, to managing low cardiac output, Paediatric Intensive Care gives practical and realistic advice for children's doctors and nurses in intensive care. Information is organised by system or speciality, and presented in easily-accessible '5 minute chunks', making it easy to get the answers you need, but is also extensively cross-referenced so that different aspects of a particular clinical problem are fully covered. The handbook contains answers to specific problems and provides guidance on how to manage specific issues, and will become an indispensible guide for all those who provide care to sick children.

Critical Care of Children with Heart Disease

Basic Medical and Surgical Concepts

Carol G. Vetterly, Carol Schmitt
e altri

editore: Springer London Ltd

pagine: 776

"Critical Care of Children with Heart Disease" will summarize the comprehensive medical and surgical management of the acutely-ill patient with congenital and acquired cardiac disease. The aim of the book is to teach bedside physicians, nurses and other caregivers, basic and practical concepts of anatomy, pathophysiology, surgical techniques and peri-operative management of critically ill children and adults with congenital heart disease, allowing these professionals to anticipate, prevent or else treat such pathologies. The book will cover specific cardiac lesions, review their anatomy, pathophysiology, current preoperative, intraoperative and postoperative assessment and management; medical and surgical complications will be briefly described with each lesion further discussed in specific chapters. In addition, the book will have dedicated chapters to management of cardiac patients on extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, hemofiltration, hemo or peritoneal dialysis and plasma exchange. Practical guidelines for cardiovascular nursing care will be also included.

Understanding Mechanical Ventilation

Ashfaq Hasan

editore: Springer London Ltd

pagine: 564

Simplify, simplify! Henry David Thoreau For writers of technical books, there can be no better piece of advice. Around the time of writing the first edition - about a decade ago - there were very few monographs on this s- ject: today, there are possibly no less than 20. Based on critical inputs, this edition stands thoroughly revamped. New chapters on ventilator waveforms, airway humidification, and aerosol therapy in the ICU now find a place. Novel software-based modes of ventilation have been included. Ventilator-associated pneumonia has been se- rated into a new chapter. Many new diagrams and algorithms have been added. As in the previous edition, considerable energy has been spent in presenting the material in a reader-friendly, conv- sational style. And as before, the book remains firmly rooted in physiology. My thanks are due to Madhu Reddy, Director of Universities Press - formerly a professional associate and now a friend, P. Sudhir, my tireless Pulmonary Function Lab technician who found the time to type the bits and pieces of this manuscript in between patients, A. Sobha for superbly organizing my time, Grant Weston and Cate Rogers at Springer, London, Balasaraswathi Jayakumar at Spi, India for her tremendous support, and to Dr. C. Eshwar Prasad, who, for his words of advice, I should have thanked years ago. vii viii Preface to the Second Edition Above all, I thank my wife and daughters, for understanding.

Intensive and Critical Care Medicine

WFSICCM World Federation of Societies of Intensive and Critical Care Medicine

a cura di A. Gullo, J. Besso

editore: Springer Verlag

pagine: 596

The focus of this volume is the "state of the art" of Intensive and Critical Care Medicine as well as new insights into basic science, clinical research and therapeutic interventions. Structured in four parts, the volume opens with few chapters devoted to the beginning and development of the WSICCM, to procedures standardization, recommendations and quality of care improvement, with particular reference to the definition of clinical governance, professionalism and ethics. In the second part, the authors describe the practical clinical approach to critical illness; among the topics dealt with, the reader will find monitoring and management of shock states; acute pain management, airway management, ALI/ARDS and protective lung ventilation; the problem of weaning; antibiotics policy, sepsis and organ dysfunction. The third part of the book is related to some special conditions of countries with limited resources, such as management of obstetrics at high risk, malaria, AIDS, blood transfusion and its components. The last part of the book is structured to present some crucial issues of the intensive and critical care arena, in particular evidence-based practice, the role of the e-distance learning for information and the promotion of CME programs; last but not least, trauma care, disaster and natural disaster medicine are also discussed; a final chapter on the Guidelines of the World Health Organization (WHO) on Disaster Medicine is included.

Oxford Handbook of Critical Care Nursing

Sheila K. Adam, Sue Osborne

editore: Oxford University Press

pagine: 592

The Oxford Handbook of Critical Care Nursing has been written as a handy reference guide for nurses who are new to the critical care area, as well as a reminder for those with more experience. Each section provides an overview of individual problems, and the related physiology and level of knowledge required to deal with them. The book sets the context for nursing within a continuum of critical care starting from early recognition of acute deterioration and the need for critical care outreach, through to patient outcomes and their follow-up, and evaluation of care post-discharge. Nursing specific skills are highlighted with a holistic approach to patients and their families. Reflecting best practice, this book provides the essence of what is important to the delivery of highly skilled and caring critical care nursing, in an easy to access and readable format. Providing the nurse at the bedside with the answers to many day-to-day problems experienced when caring for critically ill patients, this is also a guide to some of the less commonly encountered issues, such as planning for major incidents and epidemics.

Handbook of Critical Care

Jesse B. Hall

editore: Springer London Ltd

pagine: 275

Previously published as Handbook of Critical Care by CMG this book is a pocket-sized basic intensive care manual. The handbook is divided into 15 chapters, eight substantial ones covering the major organ systems, as well as infection, nutrition, physical injury and toxicology, and brief chapters on scoring systems and obstetrics. Many of the sections are loaded with very clear pictures, comparative tables, diagrams and lists, and provide more than adequate information for juniors training in intensive care medicine. The definitions, aetiology, clinical features and differential diagnoses are well covered. Excellent use is made of bullet points and numbering, which vastly increases the clarity of presentation compared with many other books that are pitched at a similar audience.

Ventilazione meccanica non invasiva. Come, quando e perché

Francesco Fanfulla

editore: Springer Verlag

pagine: 280

In Italia e in Europa in generale la ventilazione non invasiva (NIV) è applicata su larga scala, prevalentemente nei reparti di Pneumologia e nelle Unità di Cure Intermedie Respiratorie, mentre per quanto riguarda la sua applicazione nei reparti di Terapia Intensiva Generale (UTI) i dati emersi da uno studio multicentrico condotto nei paesi francofoni vedono la NIV impiegata in una quantità di casi che rappresenta fino al 50% dei pazienti che richiedono assistenza ventilatoria. Il recente studio EUROVENT ha inoltre dimostrato come la NIV non si limiti alla sua applicazione "acuta", dal momento che circa 25.000 pazienti sono attualmente ventilati "in cronico" a domicilio. Inoltre, si calcola che milioni di cittadini europei soffrano attualmente di disturbi respiratori durante il sonno, e per molti di essi il trattamento medico di prima scelta è rappresentato dalla NIV. Questo libro si propone lo scopo di richiamare l'attenzione sulle più recenti acquisizioni in questo campo, con la speranza di fornire uno strumento valido e maneggevole per la scelta e l'impostazione della migliore modalità di ventilazione.

Stupor e coma

a cura di L. Beretta

editore: Cortina Raffaello

pagine: 422

Delirium, stupor e coma sono condizioni cliniche con le quali devono frequentemente confrontarsi i medici di quasi tutte le specialità. Se diagnosticato e trattato in modo appropriato, il coma può spesso essere superato con successo; per contro, un ritardo nella diagnosi e nel trattamento può risultare fatale. Questo libro fornisce un approccio clinico aggiornato basato su rigorosi principi fisiopatologici per il medico chiamato a diagnosticare e trattare alterazioni dello stato di coscienza. La parte iniziale del volume è dedicata alla descrizione della fisiologia dello stato di coscienza e della fisiopatologia delle alterazioni della coscienza. La trattazione prosegue con la descrizione dell'approccio al paziente con alterazione dello stato di coscienza, riservando particolare attenzione all'esame medico, ma illustrando anche le più moderne tecniche diagnostiche per immagini. Le principali cause strutturali e metaboliche del coma sono analizzate in dettaglio. Il testo affronta, quindi, il trattamento d'urgenza sia medico sia chirurgico dei pazienti con specifiche alterazioni della coscienza e la relativa prognosi. Questa edizione è arricchita di nuovi capitoli dedicati all'approccio alla diagnosi di morte cerebrale e alla fisiologia clinica dello stato vegetativo e dello stato minimo di coscienza, come pure ai problemi etici legati alla cura di questi pazienti e al rapporto con i loro familiari.
