Doctors working for the first time in an intensive care unit are faced with a variety of extremely ill and technically demanding patients. Very often they are exposed to situations for which they have not been properly prepared. Although most disciplines and professional examinations now demand some understanding of intensive care, opportunities for learning intensive care medicine are limited, with few courses available. Critical Care Cases presents a cross section of common problems seen in intensive care, presented by experienced teachers working in this field. Each topic begins with a real life case history, complete with examination findings, biochemistry, and blood gases. The readers are then given the opportunity to consider how they would manage the situation, before turning over to find a full discussion and recommendations from an expert in the field. The book covers all the common intensive care problems, including: respiratory failure, trauma, infection, and neurological disorders, and will provide a stimulating and thought provoking text for anyone preparing to work in intensive care medicine.
