About this book


A workshop was organised in order to achieve multi-discipli- nary review of the pathogenesis and management of acute failure, particularly as it occurs and is managed in intensive therapy units. The book deals with the realities and practicalities of this important area of acute medicine. Each chapter is followed by a discussion, so that a concen- sus view is obtained from an international body of experts.
