Churchill’s Pocketbook of Intensive Care PDF

It is not intended to compete with the many already well-established texts in the fi eld of intensive care, but is intended to present a distillation of sensible practice and ideas. Every new doctor who is resident in the intensive care unit will be faced with a large variety of clinical problems to be solved. Churchill’s Pocketbook of Intensive Care PDF

This book is therefore based on the common problems the authors are asked about on a regular basis, most of which can be easily solved by following simple rules. The aim has been to use the minimum of space by avoiding excessive detail, and no apology is made for repetition, or for what may on occasion appear a didactic approach. Information related to the specialist areas such as paediatric and cardiothoracic intensive care has been specifi cally excluded, although the general principles described are equally applicable in those areas.

In many countries there are increasing moves to rotate trainees from different specialties, without previous intensive care experience, through intensive care. The hope is that this guide will prove timely and useful in this respect. In the 13 years since the fi rst edition and nine years since the second was published, there have been a number of changes in intensive care. We have incorporated these changes into this new edition. As a result, we have extensively revised the text and included a number of new or revised fi gures.

The overall format however, remains the same. We hope that this edition will continue to provide new trainees in intensive care with safe, sensible and practical advice. We are also aware that the book has proved popular with critical care nurses, physiotherapists and other healthcare professionals working in critical care, and hope that we have pitched the detail at the right level to also satisfy this readership
