Georgetown Critical Care Top 40
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Here are 40 landmark ICU articles organized into 8 sections: Sepsis, ARDS / Mechanical Ventilation, Sedation / Vent liberation, Fluid / Blood / Vasoactive drugs, Infections, Endocrinology, Gastroenterology and Brain injury / Cardiac arrest / Outcomes. After careful review, we summarized each into a paragraph describing the methods, results, strengths, weakness and controversies. Each has a “practice point” – how the conclusions of that study should inform your decision making as the ICU resident. This summary is not intended to replace your own individual review of these articles.
This compendium of relevant, practice-setting articles surrounding the care of the critically ill patient should be required reading for all medical students, residents, nurse practitioners or physician's assistants who are preparing to work in an ICU.
A great compendium of landmark articles, summarized with an eye towards the clinician. Fabulous addition, and free as well!
Dr. Sonti takes you through the relevant landmark articles in critical care medicine in a concise, clear, and entertaining way. His book is an amazing contribution to trainees and in general all health-care professionals who work in critical care. And its also free.
