Difficult Decisions in Cardiothoracic Critical Care Surgery 1st Edition PDF is part of the Difficult Decisions in Surgery series that covers surgical specialties. The volumes are multi-authored, containing brief chapters, each of which are devoted to one or two specific questions or decisions within that specialty that are difficult or controversial. The volumes are intended as a current and timely reference source for practicing surgeons, surgeons in training, and educators that describe the recommended ideal approach, rather than customary care, in selected clinical situations.
“The audience includes practitioners, mainly cardiac intensivists, surgical critical care intensivists, and medical intensivists taking care of cardiothoracic surgery patients. … This excellent book covers important aspects of the care of complex cardiothoracic patients in the ICU that have yet to be addressed.” (Jeffanne E Millien, Doody’s Book Reviews, October 18, 2019)
