The ultimate book and DVD package for Intensive Care Medicine trainees arrives in the form of Examination Intensive Care Medicine, Second Edition.

ELSEVIER Australia has published "Examination Intensive Care Medicine, Second Edition" – an exceptional text written to assist students undertaking demanding ICU fellowship examinations.

The only publication to specifically meet the goals of an examination guide for Intensive Care Medicine (ICM) trainees, this one-of-a-kind resource is sold with an interactive DVD jam-packed with auxiliary tools and information.

This new edition builds on the contents of its predecessor, Examination Intensive Care and Anaesthesia, which was published in 2007.

Examination Intensive Care Medicine, Second Edition has been completely updated and promises to be a well-thumbed addition to the desks of Intensive Care Medicine trainees, as well as students in emergency medicine, surgery and medicine. The book’s revised information on the use of anaesthetics in Intensive Care Medicine makes it equally suitable for anaesthesia trainees, too.

This high-quality intensive care medicine exam guide addresses critical elements of major clinical exam syllabuses, both within Australia and overseas. These include the Fellows of the College of Intensive Care Medicine (FCICM), European Diploma in Intensive Care Medicine (EDIC) and the UK Diploma in Intensive Care Medicine (DICM).

The authors of this second edition have penned new chapters on paediatric intensive care and ICU equipment. Essential information on basic sciences and practical and procedural skills, along with useful performance strategies and tips for success, make this a must-have resource for students.
