  • Description
  • Details

This new edition of the Care of the Critically Ill Surgical Patient, a manual for the 'CCrISP'TM course of The Royal College of Surgeons of England, has been fully revised and updated.

The book describes a practical system for the assessment and management of the surgical patient, whether on the ward, following emergency admission or operation, in the HDU or in the ICU. Surgeons in training must quickly develop their own skills to enable them to look after these patients following an emergency admission, major surgery or unexpected complication. They must also be able to function effectively with colleagues from related disciplines, particularly anaesthesia and intensive care. Critical Care is now an accepted part of surgical practice - within the last few years it has become part of postgraduate exams and more importantly, is part of everyday practice of the majority of surgeons.

Unlike more formal textbooks, this manual focuses on 'what to do next'; it is therefore particularly suitable for trainee surgeons engaged in acute surgical practice, as well as those in preparation for postgraduate examinations.
