An indispensible pocket reference for critical care trainees, consultants and intensive care nurses, this new Oxford Specialist Handbook provides an evidence-based approach to all aspects of patient care in cardiothoracic intensive care. Written in the Oxford Handbook format, each section is comprised of short topics ideal for quick reference. Portable, accessible, and reliable, the book equips the clinician with the basic scientific and clinical knowledge to safely assist in formulating management plans, based on current best practice. Cardiothoracic Critical Care addresses major recent developments in cardiothoracic critical care, such as cardiovascular support, mechanical support (IABP, VADS, and ECMO), and drug therapies such as nitric oxide and other new inotropic agents. The management of postoperative bleeding is covered in detail, as it increasingly involves updated fluid and blood-product therapies including blood preservation techniques such as cell salvage.
