critical care medicine is a dynamic and exciting arena where complex pathophysiologic states require extensive knowledge and up-to-date clinical information. an extensive kno- edge of basic pathophysiology, as well as awareness of the appropriate diagnostic tests and treatments that are used to optimize care in the critically ill is essential. since our frst edition 7 years ago, new information crucial to the care and understanding of the critically ill patient has rapidly accumulated. because this knowledge base crosses many different disciplines, a comprehensive multidisciplinary approach presenting the information is essential, similar to the multidisciplinary approach that is used to care for the critically ill patient. we have strived to provide this content in an easily digestible format that uses a variety of teaching tools to facilitate understanding of the presented concepts and to enhance information retention. to meet the demand to provide comprehensive and diverse education in order to und- stand the pathogenesis and optimum care of a variety of critical illnesses, we have subst- tially revised the prior topics in the frst edition with updated information.
we have also markedly expanded the number of topics covered to include acute lung injury and the acute respiratory distress syndrome, an expanded discussion of the physiology and operation of mechanical ventilation, obstetrical care in the icu, neurosurgical emergencies, acute co- nary syndromes, cardiac arrhythmias, role of whole body rehabilitation in the icu, ethical conduct of human research in the icu, and nursing care of the icu patient.
mayo clinic critical care case review is a unique compellation of cases presented at the highly rated mayo clinic clinical pathological case (cpc) conference. designed to cover rare cases in a short amount of time, these reviews are set up in what is called the "unknown" format: highlighting the clinically key elements of the patient's hospital course, singling out the diagnostic dilemmas, and concludes with a question and answer format that allows clinicians to take home relative points for clinical practice. written by practicing intensivists and critical care fellows for practicing intensivists and critical care fellows, this book combines interesting reading experiences with critical care medicine review. each chapter ends with questions and answers that provide a board style review for the readers. each case begins on the left-hand page with the discussion on the right, written succinctly to provide quick diagnostic understanding. while most critical care review books focus solely on an organ-system format, mayo clinic critical care case review captures the spirit of the cpc conference in its text and illustrations.
