"This is a summary of technical skills needed to practice in the critical care environment. With the growing number of advanced practice providers coming from nursing and physician assistant programs, exposure to procedural techniques encountered in the critical care unit is invaluable. This book is an introduction to these techniques. Nurse practitioners and physician assistants entering the ICU setting are an appropriate audience for this work." (David J. Dries, Doody's Book Reviews, January, 2017)
