This text was written for practitioners of critical care, clinical nurse specialists, and critical care educators, but not the novice to critical care. It implies an understanding of anatomy and physiology and basic pathophysiology and the management of more common aspects of acutely ill patients. This text addresses the controversies in critical care management—the emerging truths that threaten old myths—and bridges the gap between medical research and animal model research in critical care and today’s bedside practice. It advances the professional knowledge of the critical care nurse to a high degree.
