Reviews

  • "...sterling overview."

    "This text is truly remarkable to the canons of scientific literature."

    "The key-point lists which augment each chapter serve to effectively summarize data while allowing physicians to review the most salient aspects of a chapter quickly and thoroughly. Simply, Parrillo and Dellinger have built a resource that is the mirror image of critical care medicine -- this vast and ever-evolving book will challenge its reader's attention and demand their deep input (much the same as the doctor-patient relationship itself)."
