Irwin and Rippe's Intensive Care Medicine is a comprehensive, single-volume textbook covering both the theoretical and practical aspects of medical and surgical critical care. Thoroughly updated for its Seventh Edition, this classic reference remains an unsurpassed source of definitive, practical guidance on adult patient care in the ICU. It provides encyclopedic, multidisciplinary coverage of both medical and surgical intensive care and includes a "how-to" atlas of procedures and a new section on noninvasive monitoring. Each chapter has been completely revised and updated to reflect the latest studies. The cardiology section has been completely rewritten to reflect advances in management of acute coronary syndromes. Also included are extensive updates on management of COPD, diabetes, oncologic emergencies, and overdoses and poisonings. A special section on Nursing Considerations has been added which contains chapters on the use of nursing sensitive quality indicators, the role of advanced practice nurses in the ICU, effective collaborative practices in the critical care team, and ICU nursing and telemedicine. The new edition will be presented in full color for the first time. A companion website will provide instant access to the complete and fully searchable text.
