Mayo Clinic Critical Care Case Review is a unique compellation of cases presented at the highly rated Mayo Clinic Clinical Pathological Case (CPC) Conference. Designed to cover rare cases in a short amount of time, these reviews are set up in what is called the "unknown" format: highlighting the clinically key elements of the patient's hospital course, singling out the diagnostic dilemmas, and concludes with a question and answer format that allows clinicians to take home relative points for clinical practice. Written by practicing intensivists and critical care fellows for practicing intensivists and critical care fellows, this book combines interesting reading experiences with critical care medicine review. Each chapter ends with questions and answers that provide a board style review for the readers. Each case begins on the left-hand page with the discussion on the right, written succinctly to provide quick diagnostic understanding.

With his “deeply informed and compassionate book…Dr. Epstein tells us that it is a ‘moral imperative’ [for doctors] to do right by their patients” (New York Journal of Books). The first book for the general public about the importance of mindfulness in medical practice, Attending is a groundbreaking, intimate exploration of how doctors approach their work with patients. From his early days as a Harvard Medical School student, Epstein saw what made good doctors great—more accurate diagnoses, fewer errors, and stronger connections with their patients. This made a lasting impression on him and set the stage for his life’s work—identifying the qualities and habits that distinguish master clinicians from those who are merely competent. The secret, he learned, was mindfulness. Dr. Epstein “shows how taking time to pay attention to patients can lead to better outcomes on both sides of the stethoscope” (Publishers Weekly). Drawing on his clinical experiences and current research, Dr. Epstein explores four foundations of mindfulness—Attention, Curiosity, Beginner’s Mind, and Presence—and shows how clinicians can grow their capacity to provide high-quality care. The commodification of health care has shifted doctors’ focus away from the healing of patients to the bottom line. Clinician burnout is at an all-time high. Attending is the antidote. With compassion and intelligence, Epstein offers “a concise guide to his view of what mindfulness is, its value, and how it is a skill that anyone can work to acquire” (Library Journal).

Pleural effusions, left and right heart dysfunction, mediastinal nodal pathology, and pulmonary embolism are just a few of the many thoracic diseases which can be diagnosed with the help of ultrasound techniques! Chest sonography has become an established procedure in the stepwise imaging diagnosis of pulmonary, cardiac, and pleural disease. It is the method of choice for many diseases and allows the investigator to make an unequivocal diagnosis without exposing the patient to costly and stressful procedures. This book, volume 37 in the well-known Progress in Respiratory Research series, presents the state of the art in clinical chest ultrasonography. As implied by its title, it covers all aspects of ultrasound involving the chest, at the same time differentiating between routine and emergency procedures. Basic elements such as indications, investigational techniques and imaging artifacts are detailed in separate chapters. The large number of excellent illustrations and the compact text provide concise and easy-to-assimilate information about the diagnostic procedure. Apart from the printed still pictures, the book comes with a complimentary online repository containing a variety of key videos. Each chapter presents an autonomous concise overview of indications, methods, diagnoses and pitfalls and can be used as a systematic review. It is written by leading experts as a guide by clinicians for clinicians and is a must for physicians, pulmonologists, intensivists, as well as all doctors with an interest in chest medicine.

Intensive care patients are the most critically ill in any hospital and they are a patient group that utilises a disproportionate amount of medical resources. Intensive care medicine, around for about 40 years, is a relatively recent but globally expanding specialty due to a growing geriartric population of discerning demand for health system. The older generation of intensivists are approaching retirement. The middle generation is trained in various medical specialties and then subspecialised in intensive care. These doctors now lead the way in clinical practice, research, management and training. On the other hand, the younger generation of intensivists includes an ever increasing number of doctors who, for the first time, enjoy a structured training program with clinical rotations, courses, and exam qualifications. Written by outstanding specialist practitioners who are also internationally acclaimed authors from the UK and North America, this is an authoritative guide to practical intensive care medicine. The clinical contents of the book share a practical and educational common thread with each chapter addressing pertinent clinical challenges comprehensively.
