Series: Core Critical Care
Despite increasing interest in intra-abdominal hypertension (IAH) and abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS) as causes of significant morbidity and mortality among the critically ill, unanswered questions cloud the understanding of the pathophysiology of these conditions:
• Are IAH and ACS synonymous?
• What are the ideal methods of measuring and lowering intra-abdominal pressure (IAP)?
• When should we think of IAH?
• Can IAH be prevented?
• What level of IAP requires abdominal decompression?
Written by two experts in critical care and IAP, Intra-Abdominal Hypertension is a distillation of the current literature and furthers the understanding of these complex critical conditions. Using a step-by-step approach and illustrative figures, this clinical handbook presents a concise overview of consensus definitions, measurement methods, organ assessment and treatment options. Intra-Abdominal Hypertension is essential reading for all members of the intensive care multidisciplinary team, including experienced and junior physicians, anesthetists and nurses. Contains a complete and concise overview of IAH and ACS which aids quick and accurate learning • List of all currently available IAP measurement tools enables decisive treatment • Summary of consensus definitions distils the current literature and clarifies these conditions.
Critical and Acute Care Ultrasound: THE POCUS book (25 EUR)
Paperback (ISBN: 000) - 150 pages
Authors: Manu Malbrain (Ed.)
Series: IFAD Book Series
This Comprehensive Book on Critical and Acute Care Ultrasound (CACU) summarizes the reviews published during the previous International Fluid Academy Days. The papers are published under the Open Access CC BY Licence 4.0. Critical and Acute Care Ultrasound together with point of care ultrasound (POCUS) is becoming a holistic and translational discipline and is considered as the modern stethoscope for the critical care and emergency care physician. Dr Roy Filly, Professor Emeritus of Radiology, and chief of the department of diagnostic sonography in Stanford predicted in 1988 that ultrasound would likely become the new stethoscope: “As we look at the proliferation of ultrasound instruments in the hands of untrained physicians, we can only come to the unfortunate realisation that diagnostic sonography truly is the next stethoscope: poorly utilized by many but understood by few” This book is edited by Manu Malbrain, Internist-Intensivist, Director of the Intensive Care Department at the University Hospital in Brussels (UZB), Belgium, he is Professor at the Brussels Free University (VUB) and one of the chairmen of the iFAD meeting.
