This book provides learners with a unique opportunity by virtue of the format outlined below. Each case presentation has a case vignette, which leads up to an important clinical question, and is followed by additional discussion which resolves the question posed. This is a new way to present knowledge in a medical book and should help critical care practitioners, fellows, residents, allied health professionals and students expand their critical care knowledge in an efficient and effective manner.  This approach should also benefit those preparing for board examinations.

Key Features
  • Case-based approach closely replicates the usual clinical learning process in medicine
  • Takes a novel approach to the presentation of information with the emphasis placed on evidenced based medicine and the boundaries of current knowledge, what we are calling the “evidence contour”​
  • Bridges the gulf between the traditional encyclopedic textbook and the single-hit online reference
