From the reviews: "The book reviews the authors' nearly 20 year effort of measuring fluid compartments in various disease states. The authors validate dynamic 'dilution volumetry' in measuring intravascular and extracellular fluid compartments in normal and critically ill patients. ! Their assertion is just extreme enough to motivate the reader to explore these determinations in their own surgical or critically ill patients. ! The authors should be applauded for their persistent, sequential analysis of the data and the application to patient management." (Loren A. Bauman, Anesthesia and Analgesia, Vol. 104 (4), 2007)
