Concepts in Surgical Critical Care

With more surgical patients requiring special perioperative care in an intensive care unit (ICU), there is an increased demand for Advanced Practice Providers (APPs) who are equipped to care for them. However, APPs such as Physician Assistants (PAs) or Nurse Practitioners (NPs) have limited specialized training and exposure to the unique needs of the perioperative critically-ill population. That's where this book can help.

Concepts in Surgical Critical Care is an indispensable resource for the APP, non-surgical intensivist, or non-intensivist surgeon who regularly provides critical care for surgical patients. It features a user-friendly organization designed for quick reference while at the bedside of patients or in an office. It starts with foundational critical care topics across all surgical specialties and is followed by the specifics, including gastrointestinal surgery, cardiac surgery, neurosurgery, obstetrics, and more. This book is a unique resource written by APPs to help APPs provide superior care for their perioperative critically-ill patients.

Key Features:

  • A comprehensive yet concise single resource designed specifically for APPs caring for perioperative critically-ill patients
  • Emphasizes the importance of inter-professional collaboration when caring for these extremely ill patients, with each chapter co-written by a team of physicians and APPs who are experts in their respective fields
  • Includes Key Concepts, Clinical Pearls, Focus and Practice Questions, case studies, simulations, and numerous tables and figures to illustrate complex topics and aid in comprehension
