The Icu Book Marino Pdf

Supplement to (work): Marino, Paul L. Marino's the ICU book. 4e. Other titles: Little ICU book of facts and formulas | Marino's the little intensive care unit book. Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care, and Sleep Medicine, Medstar Georgetown University Hospital, Washington D.C.. Marino's the ICU Book by Paul L. Marino. Marino, Paul L. The ICU book / Paul L. Marino.—2nd ed. medical-site.info Includes bibliographical references and index. ISBN 1. Critical care medication.

The ICU book is excellent reference material for all physicians, not just intensivists. It is a valuable resource for any health professional, from medical student to experienced physicians and a must for anyone entering critical care medicine, anaesthesia, accident and emergency, medicine or surgery and even for critical care nurses as well. It provides a superior review for residents preparing for board examinations and the essential background for ICU rotations. The ICU Book is a very complete overview of fundamentals and the physiology behind patient care presented in a succinct manner. The latest complex physiological findings are broken down into simple concepts, accompanied by important straight to the point facts and easy to understand illustrations. The short paragraphs prevent you from getting lost in the subject. The text is brilliantly written and easy to read and learn from, with simple English for those who speak English as a foreign language; every nurse can follow it as well. The emphasis on managing critically ill patients in a simple manner with the support of evidence-based medical literature is also useful for patient care outside the ICU. The ICU book covers a broad spectrum of critical care topics. The third edition has undergone extensive revision in content and most of the chapters have been rewritten. Newly renamed and refocused chapters on hot topics are: acute coronary syndromes, severe airflow obstruction and anaemia and red blood cell transfusion in the ICU. Additional new chapters include hyperthermia and hypothermia syndromes and infection control in the ICU. Close to new tables and figures including radiographs, CT scans, electrocardiograms and microscopic images have been added to provide visual references, which aid in comprehension of the text.

It has shifted the focus away from previous chapters in the second edition that largely emphasized theoretical concepts of tissue injury, such as oxidative stress, which have not been translated into clinical success despite substantial efforts.

Marino's The ICU Book: Print + Ebook

The bulk of the chapters, with a few exceptions, continue to use a problem-based rather than a disease-oriented approach. Marino states in his foreword that the problem-based approach mimics the workings of the intensive care unit ICU because it focuses on practical solutions to medical problems that arise in the ICU setting, e.

This statement clearly highlights the inherent limitations of a concise problem-based textbook. It points toward the intended readership as those who have early exposure to the ICU environment and those who execute ICU orders on the frontline, as opposed to senior-level intensivists involved in comprehensive and expectant patient management. Nevertheless, many important current concepts introduced into clinical practice since the last edition low-tidal-volume mechanical ventilation strategy, recent recommendations for resuscitation of patients with sepsis, early antibiotic therapy in sepsis, and a possible role of steroids in sepsis have found their way into the new ICU Book.

The omission or restricted discussion of other current topics glucose management is a limitation in a textbook that attempts to give an overview of current practice. In general, the ICU book has good quality paper and binding.

The large print and solid text unbroken by illustrations and brilliant simple figures with great message make the book pleasant to read. A future edition should not be any larger so that the book retains its handy portability.

However, I found there were too few details about Non-Invasive—Ventilation. Also the Ramsay Score, which assesses the level of ICU sedation, although described in the text, should be included in the appendix of clinical scoring systems.

As an owner of the previous edition and the German translation, I am even more impressed with this third edition. The ICU Book has been always a great guide for my everyday practice as anaesthetist and I highly recommend this excellent reference book, available at a reasonable price that will disappoint nobody.
