As the specialty of critical care medicine continues to emerge, there are a large number of important diagnostic and therapeutic procedures that can and should be done at the bedside. This atlas acts as a ready-reference for performing these procedures in the Intensive Care/Critical Care Unit. Utilizing the atlas format, text appears on one page, with complementing line drawings on the facing page. It is comprehensive and is specifically geared for the ICU/CCU-oriented audience. In addition, the atlas is cross-referenced to the leading textbooks of critical care medicine, most notably Hall's "Principles of Critical Care".
