Emergencies in Critical Care provides a practical, accessible guide to all emergency situations encountered in the critical care setting. Emergencies are very common in the critical care setting; but also surprisingly predictable. This book helps critical care staff identify those at risk, how to manage them, and be prepared in the ward. This second edition covers new areas of importance, including sections on how to deal with adverse events and critical incidents involving critically
ill patients, patient-safety and improved patient rescue packages, and on the practicalities of infection control procedures. Normal values have been combined into one short chapter for easy reference. Easy to use and evidence based, this book will help all critical care staff involved with the management of
emergencies, from the new junior doctor to the experienced consultant in a portable and easily-readable format.
