Abstract:

"' ... provides an excellent introduction to the management of acute illness for all clinical staff, and a solid foundation for those who choose to make ICM a fulfilling life-long career.' From the Foreword by Julian Bion, Professor of Intensive Care Medicine, University of Birmingham Foundation year doctors are frequently rotated to Intensive Care Units (ICUs) and, like many of those new to intensive care, find that the standard texts on this challenging clinical environment are too comprehensive to provide an introduction or day-to-day reference. This simple bedside handbook fills that gap, providing a pragmatic guide to the basics of ICU, patient management and emergencies, as well as topical areas like organ donation, using social media for learning, and management of the acutely ill patient. New to this edition, the book contains chapters on Sepsis, ARDS, Refractory Hypoxia, post-ICU syndrome, Point of Care Ultrasound, and Stress/Burnout; often from world-renowned contributors. It also addresses consent and capacity, including the new DOLS guidance. The second edition is newly divided into 7 sections: Basics; The Multidisciplinary Team; Initial Assessment: The First Hour; Drugs; Equipment and Investigations; Airway and Respiratory Emergencies; Other Emergencies and Management.?Each section is broken into short, easy-to-read topics, which have clearly outlined learning goals, summaries and emphasise the continuities between intensive care medicine and other forms of care. Foundation, Acute Common Stem and Anaesthesia junior doctors facing their initial attachment in Intensive Care will find this essential reading. Now even more accessible for non-career ICU doctors, it will also be an invaluable guide for ACCPs, outreach nurses, medical students, pharmacists, physiotherapists and allied health professionals.?
