Quick Overview
Principles of critical care remain the standard text on critical care medicine in this country. The third edition continues to be based on the author’s extensive experience on this subject for over forty-five years; it also includes guest contributors renowned for their experience in their chosen fields.

Almost all commonly observed important life-threatening illnesses occurring in India, in other tropical countries, in the Middle-East and in South-East Asia have been discussed with regards to their clinical features, pathophysiology, diagnosis and management.

The book also deals with critical care problems common to both East and West.

These include the sections on Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, Clinical Shock Syndromes, Critical Care of the Transplant Patient, Nosocomial Infections, Neurological Problems Requiring Critical Care. The section on Organ System Dysfunction Requiring Critical Care in Acute Hepatic Failure and Acute Gastrointestional Bleeding. The section on Principles, Philosophy and Ethics of Critical Care includes the authors reasoned comments on Evidence-based Medicine.
