a cura di Anthony McLean, Stephen Huang

editore: Oxford University Press

pagine: 392

Advanced critical care echocardiography brings many benefits to critical care medicine. For those wishing to practice echo at a more advance level, it is necessary to master the theoretical aspects. The Oxford Textbook of Advanced Critical Care Echocardiography provides a physiological and evidence-based reference guide to the principles and techniques of advanced echocardiography. Both transoesophageal and transthoracic echocardiography are addressed and over 300 videos, 470 figures and, 140 mcqs are included making this an ideal adjunct for courses for intensivists. The foundations of advanced echocardiography are outlined before specific assessment methods of critical care echo are provided. In reality, most critically ill patients do not suffer only one clinical problem so a section on integrated techniques explains how to answer both common and unexpected critical care questions. Finally the re use of echocardiography in critical care is explored. Important reference values for clinical use can be accessed easily in the appendices. The Oxford Textbook of Advanced Critical Care Echocardiography includes access to online-only content, consisting of videos, figures and multiple choice questions that can be used to reinforce understanding. This online material can be accessed by activating your unique access code. Authored by an international team of expert practitioners this textbook reflects the International Consensus Statement on Training Standards for Advanced Critical Care Echocardiography.

Plum and Posner's Diagnosis and Treatment of Stupor and Coma

Jerome B. Posner, Clifford B. Saper
e altri

editore: Oxford University Press Inc

pagine: 464

Plum and Posner's Diagnosis and Treatment of Stupor and Coma, 5th edition, is a major update of the classic work on diagnosing the cause of coma, with the addition of completely new sections on treatment of comatose patients, by Dr. Jan Claassen, the Director of the Neuro-ICU at Columbia New York Presbyterian Hospital. The first chapter of the book provides an up-to-date review on the brain mechanisms that maintain a conscious state in humans, and how lesions that damage these mechanisms cause loss of consciousness or coma. The second chapter reviews the neurological examination of the comatose patient, which provides the basis for determining whether the patient is suffering from a structural brain injury causing the coma, or from a metabolic disorder of consciousness. The third and fourth chapters review the pathophysiology of structural lesions causing coma, and the specific disease states that result in coma. Chapter five is a comprehensive treatment of the many causes of metabolic coma. Chapter 6 review psychiatric causes of unresponsiveness and how to identify and treat them. Chapters 7 and 8 review the overall emergency treatment of comatose patients, followed by the treatment of specific causes of coma. Chapter 9 examines the long term outcomes of coma, including the minimally conscious state and the persistent vegetative state, and how they can be distinguished, and their implications for eventual useful recovery. Chapter 10 reviews the topic of brain death and the standards for examination of a patient that are required to make the determination of brain death. The final chapter 11 is by J.J. Fins, a medical ethicist who was invited by the other authors to write an essay on the ethics of diagnosis and treatment of patients who, by definition, have no way to approve of or communicate about their wishes. While providing detailed background for neurological and neurosurgical specialists, the practical nature of the material in this book has found its greatest use among Internists, Emergency Medicine, and Intensive Care specialists, who deal with comatose patients frequently, but who may not have had extensive neurological training.

Sepsis Management in Resource-limited Settings

a cura di Arjen M. Dondorp, Martin W. Dunser

editore: Springer

pagine: 216

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license. It constitutes a unique source of knowledge and guidance for all healthcare workers who care for patients with sepsis and septic shock in resource-limited settings. More than eighty percent of the worldwide deaths related to sepsis occur in resource-limited settings in low and middle-income countries. Current international sepsis guidelines cannot be implemented without adaptations towards these settings, mainly because of the difference in local resources and a different spectrum of infectious diseases causing sepsis. This prompted members of the Global Intensive Care working group of the European Society of Intensive Care Medicine (ESICM) and the Mahidol-Oxford Tropical Medicine Research Unit (MORU, Bangkok, Thailand) - among which the Editors - to develop with an international group of experts a comprehensive set of recommendations for the management of sepsis in resource-limited settings. Recommendations are based on both current scientific evidence and clinical experience of clinicians working in resource-limited settings. The book includes an overview chapter outlining the current challenges and future directions of sepsis management as well as general recommendations on the structure and organization of intensive care services in resource-limited settings. Specific recommendations on the recognition and management of patients with sepsis and septic shock in these settings are grouped into seven chapters. The book provides evidence-based practical guidance for doctors in low and middle income countries treating patients with sepsis, and highlights areas for further research and discussion.
