- In the unique series of books on Critical Updates, this edition of 2008 is focused on the problems encountered in the intensive care unit. Like previous volumes of this series, it retains an easy-to-read format including key concepts with a mix of topics that will appeal to most readers - Talking about death and dying is not easy and to confront patient's relatives with bad news is a herculean task - As doctors deal with the patients to cure diseases and relieve them of pain and agony but at times situations do arise when treatment and clinical management becomes futile and informing the relatives of a patient about such situations when hope of remission and survival recedes, demands a big heart for intimating in a caring and empathetic manner - This book provides outlines of essential aspects of the art of communication and guides with tips and practical ways to handle such situations that would be found most useful by trainees in intensive care unit.
