Surgical Critical Care by H. Abrams – 2nd ed.
Surgical Critical Care edited by Jerome H. Abrams
“…an excellent companion reading source for the critical care trainee both on a daily basis as well as in preparation for their board examinations.”
Presenting current perspectives on the physiology and metabolism of the critically ill, this reference demonstrates practical approaches for the preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative care of the critically ill patient with an abundance of clearly laid-out figures, case studies, graphs, and charts.
Contains new chapters on stroke, vascular emergencies, support of hepatic function, and biliary complications.
Concise and easy-to-read, this source summarizes key points at the end of each chapter, offers an extensive list of references for further reading, provides quick access to valuable management strategies, theoretical discussions, and useful tables and data, and includes substantially expanded and updated discussions of injury and multiple system failure, nutritional and metabolic support, venous thromboembolism, acute cardiac syndromes, cardiac dysrhythmias, and transfusion therapy.
