Critical Care Update 2010
JP Medical Ltd, Jun 1, 2011 - Medical - 235 pages
This knowledge of basic sciences coupled with a keen clinical sense, attention to detail and good decision-making skills is the defining characteristic of Critical Care. However, medical knowledge of the nature needed for an exacting practice of Critical Care also requires renewal as technology in the ICU and understanding of disease processes evolve with the passage of time. This monograph has been created to fill this gap. While Critical Care is an established specialty in many parts of the world, only in recent years it has received some attention in India. It is therefore appropriate that this monograph has been planned, keeping in view the growing interest in this specialty. Some of the chapters are detailed while others provide an overview of the subject, but each one has been written in keeping with the challenges of our present times. Many of the important issues related to the practice of Critical Care in our country have been covered in this monograph. This publication has been made possible through the untiring efforts of all faculty members and with the help of a grant from one of the companies. Critical Care Update will hopefully serve consultants, junior doctors, nurses and paramedical staff as a handy book to guide practice and decision-making in the future.
