About the Authors
  • Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome is the most lethal form of acute respiratory failure and presents one of the greatest challenges in critical care medicine. Yet despite its severity and complexity, few texts exist devoted to its diagnosis and management. After presenting the history and epidemiology of ARDS, clinicians will learn the basic science underlying its causes, and how to manage patients in the acute and later stages. Drs Russell and Walley, along with a team of expert contributors, clearly explain such clinical issues as mechanical ventilation, pneumonia, multiple system organ failure, and cardiovascular and pulmonary physiology and monitoring. An extensive chapter on clinical assessment demonstrates the importance of total patient care. Thoroughly referenced, superbly illustrated, and up-to-date, ARDS: A Comprehensive Clinical Approach is an indispensable source of information for intensivists, pulmonologists, internists, anesthesiologists, surgeons and any physician or nurse who rotates through the critical care unit.

    • Authoritative - Russell and Walley and the contributors are world renown experts in intensive care and pulmonary medicine
    • Practical - the book includes many useful tables and algorithms, essential for on-the-spot consultation
    • Clinical - each chapter is clinically-oriented, and there's an entire section (nearly 50 pages) devoted to the clinical assessment of ARDS

    Reviews & endorsements

    'This compact book features chapters divided into manageable subsections that focus on key points or recommendations.' American Society of International Medicine

    ' … assumes very little prior knowledge of its subject and herein lies its strength. Relevant physiology and pathological processes are clearly described, with generally excellent diagrams supporting the text … an excellent book … provides something for doctors and nurses at all levels of experience … Immensely readable.' Trauma

    ' … a well-organized book … its organization and index make it a useful reference for specific questions.' John G. Williams, MD

    ' … The authors of this text have set out to provide a concise, yet comprehensive, clinically orientated handbook to cover all aspects of intensive care management of patients with ARDS, and to provide a clear explanation of the pathophysiological processes associated with the condition … the balanced presentation of factual information, basic science and clinical pragmatism will make it a useful and interesting reference source to clinicians of all levels … It would certainly prove a valuable addition to the library of any intensive care unit.' Resuscitation
