"This pocket guide will be a useful resource for the medical team in many intensive care units. It is easy to locate the appropriate information needed in a timely fashion. It is comparable to other resources in this area, but the benefit of this reference is the tables and figures. Many students, interns, and residents will find this guide useful in their training as well. Overall, it is inclusive, easy to use, and a highly suggested reference."
