Description

IC@N is a troubleshooting 'survival' guide and introductory handbook for healthcare staff new to the exciting world of critical care medicine.

The information provided here focuses upon and succinctly addresses common, important, and urgent clinical problems that may arise without warning in any patient. Many of the topics covered here are practical questions for which the simple and safe solution is not always apparent or accessible from medical texts or obscure hospital policy documents.

IC@N is based on a problem-oriented and practical approach: What should I do now? The information contained in IC@N is deliberately simple, direct, and specific. Some will think it too specific. It assumes a basic level of medical knowledge and clinical experience, plus a degree of common sense. It does not contain detailed or comprehensive treatment guides for specific diagnostic conditions nor definitive long-term treatment, that is available elsewhere from other sources. IC@N is not intended to be exhaustive nor comprehensive text book, rather a guidebook.

The guidelines in IC@N have been developed, trialled, and revised over several years by the medical and nursing staff at Northern Health and Eastern Health (Melbourne, Australia).

Our motto: soins intensifs sans frontieres (critical care without borders). The skills of critical care can be taken outside of the Intensive Care Ward (or ICU/ITU) to other areas of acute health care with the intention of preventing and treating serious illness before it becomes irreversible.

Customer Reviews

Essential & practical

A.Cystolee

Hey, this is fabulous. Wish I had this when I trained. Despite the local flavor it has practical & helpful outline of how to manage all the common problems in critical care & what to do at the bedside. Straightforward layout. Easy to read. Favorite page: "Don't forget the bedside nurse"! Is an iPad version doing soon?

Great for those starting in critical care

Groimace

This is a wonderful application aimed at those starting out in critical care & intensive care medicine. Road-tested over years at the Northern Hospital, Epping, Melbourne, Australia - it is an indispensible tool for those early times.

Great app!

Handy little app that contains all the information you need to start working in ICU. It's also very helpful when you're on ward cover at night. Highly recommended.
