"The editors should be congratulated for the choice of the contributors and for the style of presentation making the many, many parts fit nicely together. This book and the corresponding Web site can be recommended as an essential reference source for the busy clinical intensivist." - Anesthesiology, review of the 5th Edition "Every ICU should have one, and every ICU should have access to the on-line version, which I think is more useful than the paper version." - British Journal of Anaesthesia, review of the 5th Edition "This remains the leading comprehensive reference in this field. Content quality has been maintained while book size has been reduced by moving the references and procedure descriptions to the website. Web resources include a library of images from the book, with the option to download and reference links to Medline." - David J. Dries, MD(University of Minnesota Medical School), Excerpts from Doody's review service, rating - 4 Stars!
