Critical Care Medicine Review and Self-Assessment book cover

Critical Care Medicine Review and Self-Assessment

Perfect for review. Ideal for preparing for certification and recertification exams. Here's a comprehensive review of critical care in a question-and-answer format that covers all of the areas addressed on board exams. Single-best-answer or matching questions parallel those used in the exams. For each chapter, five questions focus on important principles of diagnosis and management. In-depth answers and rationales feature additional tables and illustrations to reinforce learning. Page references to Critical Care Medicine: Principles of Diagnosis and Management in the Adult, 2nd Edition, by Joseph E. Parrillo and R. Phillip Dellinger, make in-depth information easy to find. As a stand-alone resource, or in conjunction with Critical Care Medicine, it's the field's best self-assessment resource.
