Emergency Management of the Trauma Patient: Cases, Algorithms, Evidence provides a practical and realistic approach to managing a trauma code with a complete review of ATLS protocols. Each chapter begins with the presentation of a trauma scenario and emphasizes the clinical skills needed to make important management decisions. Literature references are highlighted within the chapters and provide a discussion of pivotal journal articles relevant to the topic at hand. Algorithms are integrated into the chapters to serve as a roadmap for patient management.

THE account of the use of mechanical ventilation in critically ill patients
A Doody's Core Title for 2011!
4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!
"This second edition continues the role established by its predecessor as the leading work in the field. Mechanical ventilation, as a defining event of critical care, has seen an explosion of physiologic and outcomes research in the past decade. Our thinking about management of ARDS, ventilator-induced lung injury, patient-ventilator interaction, and infectious complications has changed dramatically. All of this recent work is summarized here."--Doody's Review Service
Editor Martin J. Tobin--past editor-in-chief of the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine--has completely revised this text, acclaimed by The Lancet as "the bible of mechanical ventilation." The new edition is a cover-to-cover revision of the original content, filled with cutting-edge scientific insights from more than 200 contributors representing critical care, pulmonary medicine, anesthesiology, surgery, basic science, and radiology.
- Up-to-the minute, rigorous coverage that addresses every important scientific, clinical, and technical aspect of the field
- 70 well-organized chapters that encompass the full scope of mechanical ventilation, including the physical basis of mechanical ventilation; conventional, alternative, noninvasive, and unconventional methods of ventilator support; complications and airway management; and ethics and economics
- 24 new chapters on current issues in mechanical ventilation: Closed Loop Ventilation, Inhaled Antibiotic Therapy, Sleep and Speech in the Ventilated Patient, Mechanical Ventilation in ARDS, Ventilation Outside the ICU, and more
- Highly relevant new chapters on pharmacological and adjuvant therapy
- Greater use of tables and lists that conveniently summarize key information and solidify chapter concepts
|Maxwell and Kleeman's Clinical Disorders of Fluid and Electrolyte Metabolism

The revised edition of Clinical Disorders of Fluid and Electrolyte Metabolism , 4th ed., 1987 (cited in Brandon-Hill ). Part I defines the physiologic basis for electrolyte traffic across membranes and identifies the mechanisms underlying the excretion and conservation of ions and water. Principles elaborated in Part I, in turn, become the skeleton giving structure to the first section of Part II, wherein the primary disruptions of normal ion and fluid metabolism are identified and dissected. In the second section of Part II, the principles of physiology, pathophysiology, and the clinical aspects of the primary electrolyte and fluid disorders give defining substance to those clinical settings and syndromes in which these disorders play critical roles.

|The Clinical Practice of Critical Care Neurology
Lowest new price: $31.50
Lowest used price: $25.00
List price: $129.00
Author: Eelco F. M. Wijdicks
This comprehensive and authoritative text provides guidance on problem-solving for the neurologist faced with treating acute neurologic disorders. Presented in four parts, the text begins with a discussion of the broad spectrum of basic management issues from pain management to airway management, nursing care, and physical therpay. A detailed part 2 discusses monitoring devices and diagnostic procedures. Part 3, organized by disorder, discusses common neurologic critical care using a standardized approach. Topics such as Guillain-Barre syndrome, brain death, acute bacterial meningitis and cerebral venous thrombosis are covered in depth. The book concludes with a practical section on the management of systemtic complications in critically ill neurologic patients.
|Essentials of Pediatric Intensive Care

List price: $129.00
This comprehensive reference has been completely revised with the most up-to-date information on medical research in the diagnosis and treatment of paediatric diseases, and with new and expanded sections on pharamacology and technology for the paediatric patient. Covers the latest on liquid ventilation, high-frequency oscillatory intervention, radiographic imaging in the ICU, and molecular intensive care. Also includes a wealth of information on extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, nitride oxide therapy, inflammation and shock, and more! Due to the voluminous coverage of material, this practical guide is sectioned into two distinct books: one solely devoted to paediatric diseases and its reasearch, and the other focused on procedures, equipment and techniques. Provides the reader with outlines of chapter topics, tables, dosages and normal values in a convenient format for easy referral.
|Electrocardiography of Clinical Arrhythmias
Lowest new price: $100.32
Lowest used price: $64.78
List price: $106.95
Author: Charles Fisch
Because arrhythmias can present in so many different forms, the only way to be certain of an interpretation is to understand the underlying ECG mechanism of arrhythmia. This is especially important in choosing a management strategy, as similar arrhythmias of differing origin may have vastly different therapies/treatments. Unfortunately, standard teaching methods can seem to divorce the theoretical knowledge required for diagnosis from the hands-on reading of ECGs.
To achieve a balance of practicality and competency, the two parts of this book are equally divided between concrete example and didactic theory. Section I provides multiple ECG readings of the most commonly encountered simple and complex arrhythmias, and includes differential diagnosis where appropriate. These readings are presented with a minimum of theory, and are repetitively presented in multiple permutations, as they would be encountered in ECG reading room or on the wards. Section II provides a more in-depth discussion of ECG mechanisms and arrhythmogenesis. Attention is focused on the relevant underlying electrophysiology and the deductive processes used to reach the diagnoses of complex arrhythmias.
This book can serve as a quick and handy reference for systematic, rule-based arrhythmic diagnoses, as well as an authoritative teaching text for learning the underlying theory and mechanics. It will be of great interest to students and clinicians at all levels, including cardiologists, electrophysiologists, and others who care for patients with cardiovascular disease, ICU and ER staff, emergency physicians, anesthesiologists, and surgeons.
