Summary

Two titles from the Bestselling Oxford Handbook and Emergencies in... series are available together in this great value pack. The fully revised, third edition of the Oxford Handbook of Critical Care describes best practice of critical care in a succinct, concise, and clinically oriented way. Covering the principles of general management, it includes therapeutic and monitoring devices, specific disorders of organ systems, as well as detailed information on drugs and fluids. New material has been added on key areas such as area maintenance, dressing techniques, infection control, echocardiography, tissue perfusion monitoring, coma, and more. With up-to-date references and invaluable clinical advice, there is also plenty of space to add notes or amend sections to suit local protocols. Patient-centered and practical, it will serve the consultant, trainee, nurse or other allied professionals as both a reference and aide memoir. This is the indispensable Oxford Handbook for all those working within critical care.

Emergencies in Critical Care provides a practical, accessible guide to all emergency situations encountered in the critical care setting. Emergencies are very common in the critical care setting, but also suprisingly predictable. This books helps critical care staff identify those at risk, how to manage them, and how to be prepared in the ward. The book is split into two halves: the first about emergencies within specific systems; the second concentrates on various conditions or groups of patients. Most chapters begin with a generic description of how to manage emergencies affecting that system, or patient group. This is followed by details of specific diagnoses and how they should be managed. The author team have also tried, where possible, to follow the ABC approach, which is not only the standard approach to emergency management, but also a widely-used scheme for documenting daily reviews on ICU and for documenting trauma management. This book will help all critical care staff involved with the management of emergencies, from the new junior doctor to the experienced staff nurse and consultant in a portable and easily-readable format.
