Guiding FFICM and EDIC exam candidates through the intensive care medicine curriculum, this book provides 48 case studies mapped to eight key areas of study in the UK and European syllabuses. Cases include clinical vignettes, explanations and a list of key learning points, while also being formatted along the structure of FICM case reports. Key clinical management points are identified and linked to appropriate scientific or evidence-based research and case studies chosen reflect a general population relevant to a worldwide readership. Conditions covered are significant to large areas of clinical practice as well as more discrete specialist knowledge, making this an essential study guide for trainees preparing for exams in intensive care medicine and also a useful learning tool for candidates in related disciplines such as anaesthesia (FRCA), emergency medicine (MCEM) and surgery (MRCS).

'This book is a good collection of relevant and interesting case studies, pragmatic discussions, and appropriate references for further education. The cases described may be familiar or unfamiliar to the reader, allowing both learning of new material and consolidation of previously reviewed topics … I enjoyed reading this book and found it a useful reference. I would recommend it not only to individuals preparing for ICM examinations, but also as an educational source for all professionals looking after critically ill patients, and as a refresher for experienced intensive care physicians.' Mika Hamilton, Canadian Journal of Anesthesia
'In conclusion, Case Studies in Adult Intensive Care Medicine provides a concise and accurate description of key topics relevant to intensive care medicine. This book is recommended for students who are preparing for exams in intensive care medicine and physicians who seek a clinically oriented approach to the diagnosis and management of critical illnesses.' Houssein A. Youness and Jean I. Keddissi, Anestheisa & Analgesia
