Textbook of Critical Care is an extensive two volume guide to all aspects of critical care. The first volume covers systems of the human body in individual sections; the second volume continues to cover other vital topics for those working in an intensive care unit.

The two volumes are subdivided into fourteen sections, with 112 chapters in total. The book begins with general principles, before covering cardiovascular, respiratory, renal, and gastrointestinal systems, as well as neurology and endocrinology. The post-surgical critical care section includes a range of surgeries, and organ transplants. Further topics include obstetric critical care, haematology, rheumatology, oncology and trauma, with detailed advice on the design of, and research in the ICU.

With over 100 international contributors ensuring authoritative content throughout, and full colour illustrations across 1500 pages, Textbook of Critical Care is a valuable resource for residents, intensivists, and emergency medicine doctors.

Key Features
  • Has a special section on surgical critical care written mostly by surgeons in that aspct along with intensivists specialising in that field.
  • Separate sections on brain death, organ donations, end-of-life care and ethics and research methodology in the intensive care have also been discussed in details.
  • Covers all aspects of critical care, trauma, neuro, cardiac, gastroenterology, pregnancy, hematology, etc.
  • Has latest references, flow charts and treatment algorithms for easy reading and interpretation.
  • Special sections on tropical diseases, which are topical, have been discussed, e.g. dengue, complicated malaria, scrub typhus, H1N1, pneumonia, leptospirosis, etc.
  • Recommended for all doctors, who are associated with critical care; junior-most medical officers, who are yet to make their minds about which specialty to choose; and intensivits (Critical Care specialists), either aspiring or established.
Target Audience

The book would be useful for physicians (neurologists, gastroenterologists, pulmonologists, oncologists, hepatologists, cardiologists, intensivists) and surgeons of all super-specialities.
