This book, part of the European Society of Intensive Care Medicine textbook series, teaches readers how to use hemodynamic monitoring, an essential skill for today’s intensivists. It offers a valuable guide for beginners, as well as for experienced intensivists who want to hone their skills, helping both groups detect an inadequacy of perfusion and make the right choices to achieve the main goal of hemodynamic monitoring in the critically ill, i.e., to correctly assess the cardiovascular system and its response to tissue oxygen demands. The book is divided into distinguished sections: from physiology to pathophysiology; clinical assessment and measurements; and clinical practice achievements including techniques, the basic goals in clinical practice as well as the more appropriate hemodynamic therapy to be applied in different conditions. All chapters use a learning-oriented style, with practical examples, key points and take home messages, helping readers quickly absorb the content and, at the same time, apply what they have learned in the clinical setting. The European Society of Intensive Care Medicine has developed the Lessons from the ICU series with the vision of providing focused and state-of-the-art overviews of central topics in Intensive Care and optimal resources for clinicians working in Intensive Care.

The definitive how-to guide on this rapidly growing therapy The neural therapy techniques that can be learned from this book comprise an entire healing system that is scientifically sound.[and] will often help where other methods have failed... From the Foreword by D. Klinghardt, MD, PhD, Medical Director, Institute of Neurobiology, Bellevue, Washington Known to provide instant relief of pain, increased motion, and return of function for a variety of problems unresolved by other methods, neural therapy is widely used throughout Europe and is rapidly gaining worldwide acceptance in the therapeutic armamentarium elsewhere. This new edition of Dr. Mathias Doschs classic Atlas of Neural Therapy with Local Anesthetics covers the methodology, indications, and techniques for a proven therapy, which involves injecting procaine or lidocaine into specific nerve and tissue sites to restore proper bioelectrical function. With this striking visual guide at hand, even physicians without extensive prior experience in neural therapy will be able to implement the techniques successfully in their everyday practice. Special features: Clear, succinct instructions on administering the injections in every anatomic region, including indications, materials, and technique, plus exact insertion points, direction, and depth of needle All methods demonstrated in more than 150 stunning, full-color photographs of real-life subjects, augmented by detailed anatomic drawings of the injection sites Cautions that alert practitioners to possible complications and how to avoid them New and revised sections on segmental therapy techniques, dental procedures, patient preparation, materials, dosages, and more Refreshed, modern layout featuring accessible chapter numbering system, color coded thumb index, uniform page design, and many other enhancements Useful in a wide range of conditions including joint and back pain, muscle injuries, chronic headache and migraines, allergies, sinusitis, gastrointestinal problems, and more, neural therapy is firmly grounded in scientific research - and an excellent addition to the services you offer your patients. This practical book provides both a visual introduction for newcomers to the field and a superb refresher for more experienced practitioners.
Patient Blood Management
Author: Hans Gombotz, Kai Zacharowski, Donat Rudolf Spahn
Patient Blood Management (PBM) is an innovative clinical concept that aims to reduce the need for allogenic blood transfusions, cut health-care costs, and avert or correct the risk factors related to blood transfusion, thus minimizing the rate of side effects and complications. This comprehensive hands-on volume offers a three-point approach for the implementation of PBM to improve patient outcome, focusing on how to prevent or treat anemia, reduce blood loss, and increase anemia tolerance. The book also goes beyond preoperative PBM, with detailed accounts of coagulation disorder management and the administration of coagulation products and platelet concentrates. Special Features: Presents a clear three-pillar strategy for the application of PBM: diagnosis and treatment of anemia, reduction of peri-interventional blood loss, and optimization of the tolerance to anemia in the everyday clinical setting Covers issues such as PBM during surgery, requirements for modern transfusion medicine, ordering blood products, the role of pre-anesthesia clinics, benchmarking processes, and potential implications of PBM in the public health sector Overview of research in PBM including landmark studies and current clinical trials Boxes in each chapter highlighting key information, core statements, and summaries A multidisciplinary and international team of contributors experienced in PBM Patient Blood Management is a guide for clinicians and residents whose patients are at risk for anemia, coagulation disorders, or severe blood loss. Anesthesiologists, surgeons, and specialists involved in the use of blood and blood products can use the book for quick reference or to learn more about a leading-edge concept for optimizing patient safety and improving outcome.
