Textbook of Critical Care 6th Edition PDF
155.16 MB PDF
The sixth edition of Textbook of Critical Care continues the tradition of excellence established by earlier editions and builds on the success of new features and format changes that were introduced in the fifth edition. Several features of this new edition, such as that it is published in full color, deserve special emphasis. New color illustrations and clinical photographs offer outstanding visual guidance. A list of key points at the conclusion of each chapter will help readers remember the “take-home” messages for that topic.
The opening section comprises short chapters that provide a brief overview of clinical problems such as acute respiratory failure or diarrhea that are commonly encountered in the management of patients with critical illness.
The way this edition covers the basic science underlying the practice of critical care is also different from the previous edition, where it was contained in a separate section. Given the expanded volume of information that has necessitated increased depth related to the clinical practice of critical care, the editors have elected to integrate essential basic science information within the individual chapters rather than discuss it separately.
Because critical care medicine is now a mature specialty practiced all over the world, the experts selected to write chapters for the sixth edition are an international group. New pediatric coverage is also international in scope and addresses key topics within each area of pediatric critical care that are germane to our broader readership.
This edition still contains extensive citations to medical literature, but both the bulk and cost of the text have been decreased by providing extended reference lists on the companion website. The references are linked to Medline or directly to full-text articles where available, which will help expand your search capabilities. Each printed chapter still contains the most important references expanded by author annotation to point out their particular insights.
One of the most user-friendly and critically lauded features of the previous edition was the dedicated companion website. The premium website that accompanies the new edition has also been greatly enhanced. In addition to full text, references, and an index that are fully searchable, new features such as hyperlinked references, critical care calculators, and an image library are offered as well. All illustrations can be downloaded to PowerPoint to enhance your presentations or lectures. The most exciting feature of the website is a dedicated section on critical care procedures. All procedural chapters have been streamlined for online presentation, and most are accompanied by video clips to complement the text and offer visual guidance on how to perform a wide variety of procedures.
The sixth edition of this textbook would not have been possible without the enormous contributions made by the prior editors. We express our gratitude to Will Shoemaker, Steve Ayers, Ake Grenvik, and Peter Holbrook for the opportunity and great honor to follow in their footsteps.
