Concepts in Surgical Critical CareAuthors: Bryan Boling, Kevin Hatton, Tonja Hartjes
A Comprehensive Single Resource For APPs Caring for Perioperative Critically-ill Patients
With more surgical patients requiring special perioperative care in an intensive care unit (ICU), there is an increased demand for Advanced Practice Providers (APPs) who are equipped to care for them. However, APPs such as Physician Assistants (PAs) or Nurse Practitioners (NPs) have limited specialised training and exposure to the unique needs of the perioperative critically-ill population. That’s where this book can help.
Concepts in Surgical Critical Care is an indispensable resource for the APP, non-surgical intensivist, or non-intensivist surgeon who regularly provides critical care for surgical patients. It features a user-friendly organisation designed for quick reference while at the bedside of patients or in an office. It starts with foundational critical care topics across all surgical specialties and is followed by the specifics, including gastrointestinal surgery, cardiac surgery, neurosurgery, obstetrics, and more. Concepts in Surgical Critical Care is a unique resource written by APPs to help APPs provide superior care for their perioperative critically-ill patients.
