Most patients with critical cardiac or thoracic conditions will at some stage pass through the cardiothoracic critical care unit. Critical care presents more complex clinical data than any other area of medicine. The new edition of Core Topics in Cardiothoracic Critical Care focuses on the latest practise in the management of patients in cardiothoracic intensive care. The practice of cardiothoracic critical care medicine is constantly evolving, and this new edition reflects the modernized learning styles for trainees. Each chapter includes key learning points as well as sample multiple choice questions and answers to assist in exam preparation. This edition also features updated chapters on ECMO, perioperative management of patients undergoing emergency cardiothoracic surgery, and advanced modes of organ support for patients. This text provides key knowledge in a concise and accessible manner for trainees, clinicians and consultants from specialities and disciplines such as cardiology and anaesthesia, and nursing and physiotherapy.

• The new edition reflects the evolution in cardiothoracic intensive care, ensuring that readers are brought up to date on the subject
• Has an improved structure following the Faculty of Intensive Care Medicine (FICM) curriculum, which reflects the modernized learning styles for trainees
• Contains expanded chapters on extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), which is specific to cardiothoracic intensive care, and includes learning material for all readers on the subject
