ICU manual hand book pdf


One of the  best critical care notes for medical students

The second edition of The Little ICU Book retains the intent of the first edition; i.e., to create a distilled version of the parent textbook, The ICU Book, that presents the essentials of critical care practice in a succinct and easily retrievable format. The organization and chapter titles in the “little book” mirror those

in the “big book”, but all the chapters have been rewritten and updated, with heavy emphasis on therecommendations in evidence-based clinical practice guidelines. This edition also bears the fruits of a collaboration with Sam Galvagno, DO, PhD, who lent his wisdom and encyclopedic knowledge to several chapters in the text.

The Little ICU Book may be short in stature, but it is a densely packed, generic resource for the care of critically ill adults in any ICU.
