I have been in Pulmonary & Critical Care Medicine practice for 9 years. This is the best ICU manual that I have come across. The material is thorough and up to date. At the same time, the authors & editors have kept it concise by using numerous tables and algorithms. Almost every aspect of ICU care was addressed. It is very hard to explain in words what a tremendous amount of information was put in such a neat, handy & easy-to-read manual. One has to really see and use this book to appreciate the great work. I recommend this book to anyone who works in medical ICUs.
