From the reviews:

'Provide detailed practical advice on the performance of a wide range of procedures in the intensive care unit. ' each of the chapter authors provides a different insight into detail and the reader benefits from each new perspective. The chapters are well referenced and the authors include their own investigations into their practice ' . In all, this is a book that has immediate utility for the reader and would be a valuable supplement for teaching trainees and expanding the practice of established consultants.' (P. Harrigan, Anaesthesia and Intensive Care, Vol. 39 (2), March, 2011)
