Book Description:
Intensive care medicine is a rapidly expanding medical specialty that commands a significant proportion of health care resources. It is predicted that the demand on intensive care resources will rapidly increase in the foreseeable future, partially due to an aging elderly population. There is an increasing wealth of literature as to the nature of the intensive care multi-disciplinary team, and how this impacts patient morbidity and mortality. This book presents current research from around the globe in the study of intensive care units including: intensive care unit staffing and its impact on patient outcome; medical and nursing intensive care delivery; acute compartment syndrome on intensive care units; and blood transfusions in the intensive care unit.
