Editorial Reviews


Review of previous edition: ‘The book is particularly strong on newer medicines … and is stuffed full of useful pearls and snippets of information … an excellent book that can act as a touchstone for front-line clinical pharmacists in critical care.’ The Pharmaceutical Journal

‘Overall this book certainly accomplishes the goal of providing a practical reference for medication administration. It is rather portable and could fit in the pocket of a white coat, it is well organized, and critical information is easily accessible and digestible … the sixth edition of the Handbook of Drugs in Intensive Care, An A-Z Guide offers a compact easy-to-use reference for physicians and nurses to guide optimal and safe drug treatment for most critically ill patients.’ Orestes Mavrothalassitis and Matthieu Legrand, Anesthesia & Analgesia.
