Like Comment

In the most dynamic and challenging healthcare crisis providers have ever faced, LANGE Critical Care delivers concise, evidenced-based, and highly clinical coverage of the surgical and medical aspects of critical care. This book provides basic fundamentals, applications and insights to all ICU physicians and advanced care providers specializing in critical care. Noteworthy features include a well-illustrated Clinical Care Procedures section, high-yield summaries of the full spectrum of essential critical care topics, and the inclusion of “Controversies” chapters throughout each section addressing some of the ambiguous aspects of critical care.

This timely book also covers the growing scope of critical care provided outside the ICU and the increasing importance of critical care services within the hospital structure. In keeping with the multi-professional nature of critical care delivery, several chapters are authored or coauthored by critical care fellows, ICU nurses, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and pharmacists.

As critical care providers face the COVID-19 pandemic, this book will fully prepare them to deliver the best patient care.  The most basic fundamentals are covered in the “Bedside Technology” chapter, which includes information on monitor setup, ventilator setup, and even bed electronics.  Another chapter focuses on “Patient Safety”, a topic at the forefront of every clinicians mind no matter the disease being treated.

At the core of this book, the needs of the most critically ill patients with COVID-19 are addressed, “Ventilator Technology and Management”, “The Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome”, and “Arrhythmia Diagnosis and Management”.  These are just a few examples of the rich clinical management chapters relevant to the management of COVID found in this book. Not only does this book include chapters regarding management, but it also includes chapters about “ICU Bed Utilization”, “Alternative Staffing Models in the ICU”, “Managing the ICU from Afar: Telemedicine”, and “Intensive Talk: Delivering Bad News and Setting Goals of Care”.
