"The book provides extensive coverage of body systems, including cardiac, pulmonary, renal, neurological, haematological and multi-system disorders. There is a chapter on caring for the bariatric patient, highlighting potential complications and treatment options, including surgery. Information is presented consistently, with full-colour illustrations. Case studies and boxes on the latest research are threaded throughout, promoting engagement and critical thinking. Every chapter is supported with contemporary evidence." Nursing Standard, April 15 2009


"This comprehensive text on critical care nursing is a pleasure to read...The material is logical, coherent and accessible and yet each author has been able to sustain sufficient depth and coverage to make it an ideal text for the postgraduate critical care students or a very handy general source text for critical care units and educators. Nurse Education in Practice, 2009
