Features new videos and images that provide visual guidance and clarify complex topics.
Keeps you up to date with expanded chapters on echocardiography in the ICU and valvular heart disease, including TAVR.
Includes separate chapters on mechanical ventilation of obstructive airway disease and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) - including the many recent changes in approach to positive end expiratory pressure setting in ARDS.
Covers key topics such as patient-ventilator synchrony and non-invasive ventilation for treating chronic obstructive pulmonary disease patients with acute respiratory failure.
Reflects the recent literature and guidance on amount of fluids, type of fluid, vasopressor selection, mean arterial pressure target, and decision on steroid use in septic shock.
Provides questions and answers in every chapter, perfect for self-assessment and review.
