This new edition provides an accessible account of the essentials of intensive care medicine. The core of the book focuses on areas common to all critically ill patients including fluid therapy, sedation, shock, infection and other central topics. This key understanding of basic pathophysiological principles provides an excellent launch pad for the section on individual disease entities encompassing haematology, gastroenterology, nephrology, endocrinology, the respiratory system, cardiovascular pathology, poisoning and neurology. Economic and ethical issues are also covered, and the text is supported by numerous problem-oriented guidelines to help the care provider tackle real-life practical problems as encountered in the ICU. In the same spirit, wherever possible, the authors provide precise and meaningful advice, rather than bland generalisations. This new edition reflects the excitement, challenges and uniqueness of intensive care medicine, for the benefit of all residents, trainees, nursing staff and paramedics attached to the ICU.

Much expanded in this second edition, the volume reflects the huge advances that continue to be made in acute pain management. Part One examines the basic aspects of acute pain and its management, including applied physiology and development neurobiology, the drugs commonly used in therapy, assessment, measurement and history-taking, post-operative pain management and its relationship to outcome, and preventive analgesia.

This comprehensive book details the wide range of care needed for the management of this chronic condition...This book is essential reading for specialists in rehabilitation medicine, and it is likely to become the standard textbook for specialists in spinal cord injury medicine. It will also be an important resource for primary care and emergency room physicians, internists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, urologists, othopedic surgeons, physical therapists, and others who care for patients with spinal cord injuries." -- New England Journal of Medicine "...the most definitive text book written on the subject... well referenced and up to date and undoubtedly deserves a place in any rehabilitation library." -- The World Federation For Neurorehabilitation
