Reviews

This user-friendly pocket guide imparts information consistent with contemporary treatment strategies in this critical care subspecialty. This is a worthy bedside tool that complements major books in this field. * Doody's Notes *
All in all, the book is a quick reference guide that covers most important clinical issues... The main strength lies in the easily accessible information with quite extensive and good practical recommendations. * Journal of the Norwegian Medical Association *
Overall, the editorsandauthorshaveperformedaherculean task of presenting this practical guide that is concise, succinct, easy to read, and informative. Although in the preface, it is mentioned that the book is primarily aimed at cardiothoracic intensive care residents, fellows, and nursing staff, I see no reason as to why it should not be in the pocket of an experienced anaesthetist as well for a quick reference... this should be available in all the cardiothoracic ICUs for a ready reference. * British Journal of Anaesthesia *
