This new and updated edition is a practical guide to intensive care for the non-specialist, providing the core knowledge and principles of intensive care patient management.

From general principles through to critical care outreach and end of life care, it covers best practice management in the intensive care unit. It includes the key organ system support as well as monitoring, sepsis, brain-stem death, and nutrition in intensive care. There is also full coverage of organ donation.

This invaluable resource is highly illustrated in colour throughout with new images, references to key evidence, and further reading and resources in each chapter. It is ideal for junior doctors, medical students and specialist nurses working in an acute hospital setting and the ICU and neonatal ICU, and for anyone involved in the management and care of intensive care patients.

Endorsed by the Intensive Care Society (UK) and the Scottish Intensive Care Society.
