About the book

This book aims to include the core topics related to intensive care and precise intensive care therapy. The chapters can include day-to-day cases from the viewpoint of medical and paramedical persons working in the intensive care therapy unit who are accustomed to its management. Early and protocolized management of patients with acute illnesses is the cornerstone for better outcomes. The daily unwanted personal variations in the management of acute or critically ill patients in intensive care therapy lead to more complications, increased morbidity, and mortality. Severe acute pancreatitis, acute respiratory distress syndrome, renal replacement therapy, hypertensive disorders of pregnancy, peripartum hemorrhage, pulmonary embolism, deep venous thrombosis, diabetic ketoacidosis, gastrointestinal bleed, airway management, sepsis, atrial fibrillation and subarachnoid hemorrhage in general, as well as aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage, are all better managed through protocols.
