Beschreibungen

<b>Clinical Cases in Critical Care</b> <p>In <i>Clinical Cases in Critical Care</i>, the authors explore core clinical topics and basic sciences in a practical and realistic way, and include comprehensive discussions focusing on critically unwell patients with a variety of presentations and underlying disorders, including COVID-19, hypotension, stroke and drug overdose. <p>Each case begins with a clinical vignette which generates a series of questions the reader must address. Cases are expanded to discuss differential diagnoses, investigations and management issues. Further questions direct the reader to explore relevant clinical and scientific knowledge - similar to the structure of many professional oral examinations. The final section of the book consists of exam style questions in a multiple choice and single best answer style. <p>Perfect for medical practitioners working in critical care settings, <i>Clinical Cases in Critical Care</i> provides a thorough and accessible reference for trainee physicians with an interest in critical and emergency care, as well as allied health professionals in the field. This engaging textbook will be an essential companion for anyone getting to grips with the foundation of specialist knowledge required by professionals working in intensive care medicine.
