About this book


Sepsis (or septic shock) is one of the leading post-surgical or post-traumatic complications in today's hospitals. This pervasive condition is the major cause of morbidity and mortality in intensive care units worldwide, as well as the leading cause of death in non-coronary patients. This is a concise, practical soft cover volume devoted to covering only the most practical information for physicians. Charts, tables, and other figures are used to illustrate easy-to-follow treatment guidelines for those professionals who regularly treat patients in the ICU.
