Oh’s Intensive Care Manual


The sixth edition of Oh’s Intensive Care Manual provides practical, concise information on all aspects of intensive care. Written in a clear and accessible style and now for the first time presented in colour throughout, this book enables the user to manage a patient in an ICU setting effectively without recourse to large text/reference works or specialized monographs.

Although primarily intended for the trainee and practitioner in intensive care, nurses and other allied health professionals will find that this is an invaluable tool in helping to deal with a broad spectrum of conditions encountered in the ICU.
