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
|Principles of Clinical Measurement and Monitoring in Anaesthesia and Intensive Care
Lowest new price: $560.57

List price: $149.95
Author: MK Sykes
This is the third edition of the book originally published as Principles of Measurement for Anaesthetists. The major objective of the text is to explain the physical principles on which measurements are based, and to consider the problems and possible sources of error with each of the techniques, so that those choosing a measurement or monitoring system can make a rational choice from the commercially available equipment.
|Acute Emergencies and Critical Care of the Geriatric Patient
Lowest new price: $48.00
Lowest used price: $20.03
List price: $149.95
This incisive reference systematically reviews the diagnosis and treatment of common surgical and medical emergencies in elderly patients-thoroughly examining surgical interventions, drug therapies and drug prescribing protocols, life-threatening drug reactions, ethical issues, and methods of profiling patients for nursing care. describes ideal patient-physician relationships in critical care settings
Evaluates disease states and gauges optimal responses to each, supporting recommendations with valuable case studies.
Written by over 40 distinguished medical experts, Acute Emergencies and Critical Care of the Geriatric Patient
highlights emergency management of myocardial infarction and cardiogenic pulmonary edema
illuminates ethical questions surrounding confidentiality, informed consent, surrogate decision making, and patient comfort
assesses special pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic conditions in geriatric patients
provides vital information on stroke, seizures, and spinal cord compression
investigates critical complications caused by pneumonia, meningitis, and endocarditis
explores acute lung disorders such as emphysema, chronic bronchitis, pneumonia, central nervous system dysfunction, and abnormal control of ventilation
clarifies preoperative procedures for emergency surgery
reviews anesthesia strategies for pulmonary, cardiovascular, renal, hepatic, and neurological conditions in the elderly
Including over 1000 references, tables, and illustrations, Acute Emergencies and Critical Care of the Geriatric Patient is an indispensable resource for geriatricians, primary care physicians, internists, emergency medicine physicians, intensivists, hosptialists, surgeons, anesthesiologists, orthopedists, cardiologists, psychiatrists, neurologists, and internists/residents in these disciplines, as well as nurses, pharmacists, and medical students.
|Critical Care of the Surgical Newborn
Lowest new price: $142.86
Lowest used price: $92.14
List price: $165.95
This work does a masterful job of delineating the major surgical diseases that affect newborn infants, including general, noncardiac thoracic, abdominal, urinary and neurologic conditions. It covers all phases of care with special attention given to details of operations to correct these defects and the unique aspects of critical care that often differ significantly from more common neonatal respiratory conditions.
The recognition and treatment of complications that may arise from these conditions and their treatment is particularly emphasized, giving this book a valuable component simply not found elsewhere. Textbooks of pediatric surgery typically cover surgical conditions in a more limited fashion, and typically ignore such clinically practical details as prenatal diagnosis and pre- and post-operative care. The authors also consistently present relevant data regarding embryology, anatomy and physiology to assist understanding of disease origins and consequences.
|A Guide to Interpretation of Hemodynamic Data in the Coronary Care Unit
Lowest new price: $48.31
Lowest used price: $19.21
List price: $56.99
Author: Scott W. Sharkey
Since 1970, when the pulmonary artery catheter was introduced into clinical medicine, the technique of hemodynamic monitoring has expanded rapidly. The use of this essential procedure now encompasses the coronary care unit, the medical intensive care unit, the surgical intensive care unit, and the operating room; and an entire spectrum of physicians require this skill, including anesthesiologists, trauma surgeons, pulmonologists, nephrologists, critical care specialists, and cardiologists. Learning the proper performance of invasive techniques is essential for providing high quality patient care. This easy-to-use guide provides every important aspect of hemodynamic monitoring, and presents it in a straightforward and organized format. The book's table of contents is evidence of its exceptional organization and completeness: / Normal Physiology / Respiration / Cardiac Output / Arrhythmias / Acute Mitral Regurgitation and the V Wave / Tricuspid Regurgitation / Acute Left Ventricular Infarction / Right Ventricular Infarction / Acute Left Ventricular Ischemia / Chronic Congestive Heart Failure / Pericardial Tamponade / Pericardial Constriction & Restrictive Cardiomyopathy / Pulmonary Embolism / Trouble / Normal Values / Techniques Used in this Book.

|Hard Choices for Loving People: CPR, Artificial Feeding, Comfort Measures Only and the Elderly Patient
Lowest new price: $15.96
Lowest used price: $9.87
Author: Hank Dunn
"Hard Choices for Loving People" is written for people who are making medical treatment decisions in the face of a life-threatening illness. Over 650,000 copies have been sold and are being used in more than 3,000 hospitals, nursing homes and hospice programs nationwide. In "Hard Choices" Chaplain Dunn reviews the medical research on common treatments like resuscitation attempts and artificial feeding tubes. Often these treatments offer no benefit for frail, seriously ill patients. Hank Dunn believes that because of the little benefit offered by these treatments for some patients, decisions about their use are emotional and spiritual in their nature. The bottom line question patients and their families struggle with is "Can I let go?"
