Reviews

“Senior trainees and providers in adult and pediatric critical care will appreciate this book, which emanates from the Critical Illness, Brain Dysfunction and Survivorship Center at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. … This is an excellent standalone guide from leading investigators evaluating delirium in the critically ill. It effectively describes the limits of available therapies and reviews options for further research.” (David J. Dries, Doody’s Book Reviews, May 1, 2020)
