Hematologic Problems in the Critically Ill
This book covers a wide array of hematologic problems commonly encountered in the daily practice of critical care and emergency medicine. Unfortunately, the symptoms and signs associated with underlying hematologic disorders are frequently rather unspecific and confounding; furthermore, the clinical course of patients admitted to intensive care units with such disorders can be fulminant, warranting prompt diagnosis. This book recognizes the importance of accurate and speedy interpretation of symptoms in that the text is symptom oriented rather than disease oriented. Put another way, the reader confronted with a particular clinical problem or symptom will be guided step by step to the possible underlying disorder(s). The scenarios considered include critical illness in patients with anemia, leukopenia, leukocytosis, abnormal platelet count, and severe transfusion reactions. For each circumstance, factors relevant to symptom interpretation are fully discussed. In addition, helpful diagnostic algorithms are presented in the form of flow charts that will assist in decision making regarding the need for further investigations. The closing chapter is devoted to the drug-induced hematologic disorders. Although the book is intended mainly for intensivists, other specialists will find much information of value for their daily practice.
Controversies in Pediatric and Adolescent Hematology
Hematological disorders in children and adolescents pose a wide range of management challenges and treatment dilemmas. In this book an internationally acclaimed panel of authors, each chosen for expertise in their field, have produced a state-of-the-art collection of review articles focusing on the very latest advances and controversies in the management of pediatric and adolescent hematological problems. The whole range of benign and malignant, congenital and acquired, acute and chronic conditions is discussed in detail. Individual chapters cover hematologic problems on the pediatric intensive care unit, treatments for iron deficiency and ITP; advances in stem cell transplantation, gene therapy, novel pharmaceutics and molecular diagnostics, as well as transition from child to adult are also explored. Providing an up-to-date look at both specific hematologic disorders in the pediatric and adolescent population and also hematologic problems that arise in association with systemic disease, this book is essential reading not only for pediatric and adult hematologists but also for pediatricians, pediatric or hematologic specialist nurse practitioners and pediatric pharmacologists.
Non Pulmonary Complications of Critical Care
Clinical research in critical care has exploded in the past several years and we now have a much better understanding of how to care for intensive care unit (ICU) patients in areas such as management of sepsis, fluid resuscitation, mechanical ventilation, antibiotic administration and sedation and analgesia. However, despite improved clinical care, many critically ill patients continue to experience complications of critical illness - some complications are iatrogenic and preventable, while others are simply a component of the natural history of critical illness. These complications lead to increased mortality, morbidity, cost and long-term chronic conditions. Non-Pulmonary Complications of Critical Care: A Clinical Guide is a valuable resource for trainees and clinicians who aim to better understand and improve the quality of critical care medicine. Armed with information about potential non-pulmonary complications of ICU care and strategies to minimize or prevent those complications, the critical care clinician will be able to help ICU patients potentially avoid much of the morbidity associated with critical illness. This book is organized by organ system such that it can be easily used as a bedside reference. Complications caused by pharmaceuticals are dispersed throughout every chapter and the concluding chapters provide a special emphasis on meticulous supportive care of the critically ill patient to allow the best chance for recovery.
Haematology in Critical Care
This will be a practical handbook for use in a clinical ICU setting for information on diagnosis and clinical management of haematological disease in critical care. There are currently no books on the market that significantly address haematology in critical care – all ICU based books have a broader focus of diagnosis and clinical management, rather than purely haematology based. Common procedures/interventions for a haematologist will include delivering critical care, often for life-threatening disease. For unselected ICU admissions, every patient will have a full blood count and the great majority will have their coagulation profile checked. Many of these critically ill patients will have abnormalities in these tests that require interpretation. Many more will have clinical conditions such as thrombosis or bleeding and may require blood products.

Nonmalignant Hematology An Issue of Critical Care Clinics
Topics include: A Critical re-appraisal of Factor VIIa; Thrombocytopenia: Hit vs non-HIT causes; Transfusion Reactions: Newer concepts on the pathophysiology, incidence, treatment and prevention of TRALI; The utility of diagnostic scoring systems for DIC; Newer anticoagulants; Anemia in the ICU; The role of plasmapheresis in critical illness; The use of erythropoiesis stimulating agents in the ICU; and Coagulopathy in the ICU: DIC vs Liver disease. Is this distinction important?
Care of the Critically Ill Child
Here's the innovative new problem-based book which explains the practical guidelines on the management of the critically ill child, from presentation in the emergency room through to transfer to the pediatric intensive care unit. Written by experts, this user-friendly text has excellent features such as boxes of key points outlining common errors in management, tips on best practice, and even sections on controversial care. Also includes coverage of background physiology and epidemiology to assist the process of understanding and diagnosing the pathology of childhood critical illness and injury.
Pediatric Critical Care Study Guide
This is the first comprehensive study guide covering all aspects of pediatric critical care medicine. It fills a void that exists in learning resources currently available to pediatric critical care practitioners. The major textbooks are excellent references, but do not allow concise reading on specific topics and are not intended to act as both text and study guide. There are also several handbooks available, but these are usually written for general pediatric residents and lack the advanced physiology and pathophysiology required for the higher level pediatric critical care practitioner
Critical Care Nursing
Providing an easy-to-use reference, Critical Care Nursing outlines best practice for the assessment, monitoring and treatment of critically ill adult patients. Each chapter includes research and evidence-based strategies for treating commonly-seen conditions. Initial chapters introduce ICU set-up and operation, the rapid response team, vitals measurement and shock management strategies. Subsequent chapters, structured by organ system, focus on care relating to specific organ function and dysfunction, including the respiratory, cardiovascular, neurologic, renal and gastrointestinal systems. Key information on monitoring for overdoses, special considerations in traumatic injury and end-of-life concerns is also included. Critical Care Nursing is a comprehensive and informative resource for experienced staff nurses and advanced practice nurses working with critically ill patients on ICUs, PCUs, transitional care units and within emergency care departments.
