Reducing Mortality in Critically Ill Patients

Editat de Giovanni Landoni, Marta Mucchetti, Alberto Zangrillo, Rinaldo Bellomo

en Limba Engleză Hardback – 10 Jun 2015
This book describes the techniques, strategies, and drugs that have been demonstrated by multicenter randomized trials to influence survival in critically ill patients, defined as those who have acute failure of at least one organ, due to either a pathological condition or a medical intervention, and require intensive care treatment. Each chapter focuses on a specific procedure, device, or drug. The scope is accordingly wide, with coverage of topics as diverse as noninvasive mechanical ventilation, protective ventilation, prone positioning, intravenous salbutamol in ARDS, high-frequency oscillatory ventilation, mild hypothermia after cardiac arrest, daily interruption of sedatives, tranexamic acid, diaspirin cross-linked hemoglobin, albumin, growth hormone, glutamine supplementation, tight glucose control, supranormal oxygen delivery, and hydroxyethyl starch in sepsis. The topic selection was made using a democracy-based approach in which hundreds of specialists from dozens of countries expressed, via the web, whether they agreed with these topics and whether they used the techniques in their daily clinical practice. The clear text is supported by "how to do" sections and "key point" boxes that provide easily accessible practical information. The book will be of interest for a wide variety of specialists, including intensivists, emergency doctors, and anesthesiologists.

Recenzii

“Thissummarized literature will continue to serve as a solid foundation and usefulreference upon which to build in future. Specialists from areas of medicinethat care for patients with critical illness will enjoy this book, especiallythose working in the intensive care unit. Experienced physicians will becomfortable with much of the subject matter and familiar with the landmarktrails. … provides useful clinical summaries and practical application pointsthat even physicians well versed in the literature will appreciate.” (CarmenHrymak, Canadian Journal of Anesthesia, Journal canadien d'anesthésie, October,2015)
“This is essentially a monograph of 15evidence-based interventions that affect mortality in critical care patients.The book is the result of what the authors describe as a democracy-basedconsensus conference. It uses evidence-based medicine techniques to discussseven interventions that reduce mortality and eight interventions that increasemortality. … The audience is critical care practitioners regardless of trainingbackground. The book also will be of value to medical students, residents, andfellows.” (Jeremy Scott Juern, Doody's Book Reviews, September, 2015)
