About this title:
Pittsburgh Critical Care Medicine
Pre- and post-operative care of transplant patients is an aspect of Critical Care Medicine in which most Intensive Care Unit (ICU) physicians and nurses have received little or no formal training: they are left to handle a complex situation with only incomplete 'on-the-job experience' as a guide. In response to this clinical knowledge gap, ICU Care of Abdominal Organ Transplant Patients provides a concise bedside resource for all those caring for abdominal organ transplant patients before and after surgery.
In a concise, practical style, the author-team offers concrete solutions to questions and situations confronted by ICU clinicians. Chapters address general principles of immunosuppression, infectious complications, management, and nursing considerations, plus indications, approach to anaesthesia, transplant procedure, and post-operative care for liver, kidney, pancreas, islet cell, and small bowel and multi-visceral transplantation.
- First critical care text to address abdominal organ transplants
- Covers both pre- and post-operative care
- Offers concrete solutions to questions and situations confronted by ICU clinicians
Readership: Intensivists, surgeons, and nurses caring for abdominal organ transplant patients before and after surgery.
