Description:

For the new edition of this well known and established bench-mark text, Professor Teik Oh has selected two leading consultants to edit the contributions from expert contributors. The fifth edition is now titled Oh's Intensive Care Manual to reflect the significance of Professor Teik Oh's contribution to the great success of the first four editions.

Review:

"It is essential reading for candidates wishing to accredit for training and pass professional examinations in critical care medicine. More importantly this book will benefit all concerned with the management of patients in providing comprehensive critical care and is a must-have for any critical care area."--"British Journal of Anaesthesia, 2005" "The short and succinct chapters pack in the essential items of knowledge. Each area covered gives both theoretical basis, but also the practical ways of treating the condition being described and the evidence basis for doing so.""BMA Book Awards 2009?- judges comments"
