Description

Focusing on the basic science behind critical injury and treatment, this book discusses fluid and electrolytes, critical care support, multi-systemic disorders and critical care diseases. Pathophysiologic mechanisms behind critical injury are combined with core clinical content so the user may develop effective clinical judgments and formulate guidelines for patient assessment, diagnosis and treatment planning. The book features a very clear, easy to understand acid/base balance discussion with over 200 original conceptual drawings that facilitate understanding and 200 multiple choice questions for comprehension.

Published by Teton New Media in the USA and distributed by CRC Press outside of North America.
