The two previous editions of Applied Physiology in Intensive Care Medicine proved extremely successful, and the book has now
been revised and split into two volumes to enhance ease of use. This first volume comprises three elements -- "physiological
notes," "technical notes," and seminal studies. The physiological notes concisely and clearly capture the essence of the physiological
perspectives underpinning our understanding of disease and response to therapy. The technical notes then succinctly explain
some of the basics of "how to" in this technology-centered field of critical care medicine. Finally, a number of seminal studies
are provided on diverse topics in intensive care. Applied Physiology in Intensive Care, written by some of the most renowned
experts in the field, is an up-to-date compendium of practical bedside knowledge that will serve the clinician as an invaluable
reference source on key issues regularly confronted in everyday practice.
