Comprehensive and current, Hall, Schmidt, and Wood's Principles of Critical Care is the authoritative guide to diagnosing and treating the most common problems encountered in the practice of critical care.

  • In-depth, up-to-date descriptions of the unique presentation, differential diagnosis, and management of specific critical illnesses
  • A logical organ system approach that simplifies the search for thorough and practical information necessary to manage a patient's specific condition
  • New chapters on Oxygen Delivery Systems; Ultrasound in Critical Care; Fungal and Viral Infections; Pulmonary Hypertension; Alcohol Withdrawal; and COVID-19 and Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis (HLH)
  • New material regarding critical care pandemic preparedness and response
  • Enhanced cross-disciplinary chapters addressing the structures and systems of critical care, including staffing, safety, and informatics
  • New contributions on caregiver and family issues and the implications of disordered sleep for the critically ill
  • A full-color presentation
