From the Publisher
This review covers all medical and surgical aspects of general critical care from basic science to techniques in the intensive care unit. Cases deal with anaesthesia, intensive care, trauma, general surgery and post-operative management. The cases appear in random order, just as they would in practice, and they challenge the reader to think through a problem and devise a solution. Each problem is followed by a full explanation designed to educate not just to test the reader. The book will appeal to senior medical students and to critical/intensive care specialists and surgeons in training.
