The Critical Care Clinical Companion is written in a bulleted outline format that provides easily accessible information concerning patient management on the wards for the critical care component of clerkship rotations. It focuses not so much on underlying causes of conditions but rather the most appropriate diagnostic workup and appropriate patient management. The book contains many tables, charts and treatment algorithms that assist the student in the decision-making and patient management process.
