Intensive care medicine deals with the diagnosis and treatment of critically ill patients that need advanced monitoring and life saving support. Its diagnosis and treatment are carried out in special intensive care units within the hospital. Some of the equipment used in such units are ventricular assist devices, hemodynamic and cardiac monitoring systems, intra-aortic balloon pumps, extracorporeal membrane oxygenation circuits, continuous renal replacement equipment, etc. These equipment help in hemofiltration, mechanical ventilation, and invasive monitoring. There are many drugs that are used under intensive care. These include inotropes, sedatives, antibiotics and analgesics. This book explores all the important aspects of intensive care medicine in the present day scenario. It elucidates the concepts and innovative models around prospective developments with respect to intensive care medicine. This book will help the readers in keeping pace with the rapid changes in this field.
