"The Handbook of Critical and Intensive Care Medicine returns in its third edition with the inclusion of new material and extensive chapter updates. Intended for `practitioners engaged in critical care medicine across the world', its up-to-date and concise summaries relating to much of the pathophysiology and treatment principles encompassed by intensive care medicine provide a valuable read for those working in this field. -... It would be a useful reference text for all those involved in critical care medicine." (Ned Gilbert-Kawai, British Journal of Hospital Medicine, Vol. 77 (11), November, 2016) "This is that first quick read for more senior clinicians seeking a rapid update on an unfamiliar problem or for students entering the intensive care setting for the first time. ... This handbook can be recommended for its consistent, single-author perspective reflecting the talent and experience of a senior clinician. The scope of presentations is broad, for example, the book addresses the oncology patient in the ICU, a topic not seen in many larger books." (David J. Dries, Doody's Book Reviews, September, 2016)
