About this book

The two previous editions of Applied Physiology in Intensive Care Medicine proved extremely successful, and the book has now been revised and split into two volumes to enhance ease of use. In this second volume some of the most renowned experts in the field offer detailed reviews on measurement techniques and physiological processes of crucial importance in intensive care medicine. Throughout, a key aim is to help overcome the fundamental unevenness in clinicians’ understanding of applied physiology, which can lead to suboptimal treatment decisions.

 

Applied Physiology in Intensive Care has been written by some of the most renowned experts in the field and provides an up-to-date compendium of practical bedside knowledge essential to the effective delivery of acute care medicine. It will serve the clinician as an invaluable reference source on key issues regularly confronted in everyday practice.

Reviews

From the reviews of the third edition:

“The book describes physiological principles relative to the critical care unit in the context of management plans at the bedside. Senior trainees and practitioners will benefit from this collection written by international authorities and selected by editors of the journal. … All presentations are clearly written and supported by primary literature. … This volume helps to fill an important gap for the bedside practitioner.” (David J. Dries, Doody’s Review Service, November, 2012)
