Intensive care

Show Summary Details


In the last two decades, intensive care has progressed significantly. The phenomenal developments clinically, academically, organizationally, and professionally during this relatively short space of time have all helped to define a specialty that has not only come of age, but also has established a distinct distance from its parent specialties. Intensive care in the UK now has an established Faculty and continues to forge ahead in expanding an independent research and evidence base. The field is rapidly changing, with cutting-edge ideas driving clinical progress. Through the papers considered in this chapter, various innovations are described that have had a direct impact on everyday clinical practice.
