Book Description :

"Practicing critical care entails understanding human physiology, pharmacokinetics and molecular pathways in concert with adherence to evidence based literature. Some may say combining all of these entities into practice creates the "art" of critical care medicine. One strategy to gain proficiency in the practice of critical care medicine is to simulate what you would do in specific problem-based scenarios. That is the aim of this textbook aptly titled" "What Do I Do Now?" This text focuses on Cardiothoracic Critical Care and will cover guidelines for evidence-based practice, respiratory and metabolic physiology, common hemodynamic perturbations, ventricular failure and mechanical circulatory support devices. All clinicians who care for cardiothoracic patients who are critically ill can find pearls of practice wisdom complemented by literature citations within this text. So go ahead, place yourself at the foot of the bed and try to think through, "What Would I Do Now" when presented with each patient within these pages of your handheld cardiothoracic intensive care unit"--

"There is a significant shortage of critical care physicians across the US. For this reason, advanced practice providers (including advanced practice registered nurses and physician assistants) are being utilized more and more to bridge this clinical resource gap. However, APPs are trained as generalists and have limited specialization and exposure to the unique needs of perioperative critically-ill patients. Concepts in Surgical Critical Care is the only single resource designed specifically for APPs caring for this population. Featuring a user-friendly organization designed to quickly find what you're looking for, Concepts in Surgical Critical Care is the ultimate resource regarding the care of critically-ill perioperative patients. It starts with foundational critical care topics across all surgical specialties followed by the specifics within 12 - including the neurologic system, the cardiovascular system, the respiratory system, the vascular system, etc. The use of checklists, bold and italicized text, key concepts, clinical pearls, focus questions, case studies, simulations, illustrations, tables and figures to display complex topics, practice questions, chapter summaries, and suggested readings for further study aid in mastery of the subject matter"--
