Marino's ICU Book has remained one of the most accessible and comprehensive intensive care resources available. The 3rd version, however, was woefully out of date -- until now. The 4th edition is fully updated, features colored illustrations and photographs, and offers a searchable online-version of the text for use with your iPad/smartphone/etc.

Despite owning a library of critical care texts, I won't often find myself reaching for my copy of Vincent's Critical Care again. This is an indispensable resource for medical students, residents, fellows, attendings, Pas and critical care RNs, etc. More than just a technical manual, it is often insightful, whimsical, and poignant. There are very few medical references that you can sit down with and actually read recreationally, but this is one of them.

Fantastic book! Easy to read, with all the necessary and important information.
A couple of things outdated but you can't ask in a book a 100% up to date information. The application for tablet and phone is by far the best feature of all! I never get caught without knowing at least something during ICU shifts.

Everyone laughs when I tell them how this is the best book I've ever bought. I'm not kidding, if you do any sort of critical care work (ground or air transport, ICU, sick med-surg patients etc) you should definitely buy this book. The fact that you get the full, searchable version on inkling is amazing. I use this to look up all sorts of crazy patient conditions in flight, double-check medications or treatment plans, and just to get laughs. The author is SO good at making difficult concepts very easy to understand. A few of my coworkers have bought this as well. Buy the paper version to read, then install the Ebook version to use as a reference while working. I cannot recommend this book enough.

I bought the 3rd edition of this book while in nursing school at the recommendation of a CRNA that I was shadowing. I tried reading it and just couldn't get into it. Once I went through nursing school and became an ICU nurse, I became familiar with the unit and picked the book up again. I couldn't put it down. Concepts are straightforward, the author doesn't mince words, and everything is presented in bite size chapters that get to the point and give useful takeaways. It's approachable but not for amateurs. I bought the new edition so I could see what's changed, and having the electronic edition is nice at the bedside. I will refer to it as I start CRNA school this fall.

Excellent textbook. The organization and depth of information presented in this text is unprecedented. The organization and design of this text should be a standard all other medical textbooks should aspire to. My only complaint is the frequency of typographical error in the text and graphs which may be significant enough to confuse someone who is unfamiliar with the topics and concepts discussed, however, I don't believe they are significant enough to have an influence on the audience for which this text was intended (Physicians, and senior medical students).

I have been an ICU nurse for several years now. I have found this book to be helpful, a very good refresher, and at times very much a great resource for all one covers in the unit(s). It's been most useful when floating to sister units and encountering processes and diagnosis I'm not famialar with.

Paul Marino has done a great job with this book. You'll find the writing easy to follow and understand ((even if you're new to critical care)). Also he covers a vast amount of data, so you won't get bored reading it. If you are a diligent student of the ICU, you will acquire a good bit of necessary knowledge from this book that will serve to better you, as you better other!

Happy reading :)

One of the best medical texts I've purchased. An easy read, with up to date research. The combo print and inkling version is a great deal. The eBook has multiple addendums that cite new research that occurred after publication. The author clearly injects some of his personal brand of medicine into the text, but he lets you know this up front and backs all of it up through evidence. There is significant basic science, physics, and fluid dynamics reviewed in this book compared to most other clinical texts, but I personally appreciated the "deep dive" and felt it added rather than distracted from understanding.
