Manual of ICU Procedures

by Mohan Gurjar

Surgical procedures are now increasingly performed at bedside in the intensive care unit (ICU). Much of this is because of the recognition by surgeons and intensivists that procedures once thought to be performed entirely in the operating room (OR) may be safely and easily performed in the ICU. The book “Manual of ICU Procedures” comprises of 61 chapters, covering almost all relevant procedures, including simple as well as more complex, done in critically and acutely ill patients. The book has five different sections, such as airway and respiratory procedures, vascular and cardiac procedures, neurological procedures, gastrointestinal/abdominal/genitourinary related procedures; while section miscellaneous covers a few other procedures. This book will be helpful to various clinicians across specialty including critical care physicians, emergency physicians, anesthetists, pulmonologists, pediatricians, general physicians and general surgeons. The splendid chapters are written by experts with their vast experience and knowledge from various specialties, keeping in mind that it is also intended for the trainee students to help them to understand the procedures. Most of the chapters outline somewhat similar with headings such as introduction, indication, contraindication, applied anatomy, technique and equipment, preparation, steps of procedure, the post-procedure care, and complication/problem associated with the procedure. The highlighted feature of the book is that procedures are described step by step along with images, complications and problems. This is highly recommended that being nature of patients, procedures are supposed to learn under supervision as per local policy, to achieve better skills while taking utmost care for safety to the patient.
