The thoroughly revised second edition of the Oxford Textbook of Critical Care is a comprehensive multi-disciplinary text covering all aspects of adult intensive care management. Uniquely the book takes a problem-orientated approach providing a reference source for clinical issues experienced every day in the intensive care unit. 

The text is organized into short topics allowing readers to rapidly access authoritative information on specific clinical problems. Each topic refers to basic physiological principles and provides up-to-date treatment advice supported by references to the most vital literature. Where international differences exist in clinical practice, authors cover alternative views. Key messages summarise each topic in order to aid quick review and decision making.

Edited and written by an international group of recognized experts from many disciplines, the second edition of the Oxford Textbook of Critical Care provides an up-to-date reference that is relevant for intensive care units and emergency departments globally. This volume is the definitive text for all health care providers, including physicians, nurses, respiratory therapists, and other allied health professionals who take care of critically ill patients.

One may ask in today’s internet-based world whether there is still a need for textbooks when there is so much opinion and advice already available online. Although possibly not able to capture and include the very latest research results, textbooks provide a solid basis and background of the subject in question giving an essential framework of understanding on which to build. This Oxford Textbook of Critical Care is a true example of quality. All the authors are well-known experts in their field, the chapters have all been carefully reviewed and the contents are, therefore, relevant and reliable. What is more, as with many recent publications, this textbook is also available as an online version for easy reference. 
This completely revised and comprehensive version of the 1999 edition covers all possible aspects of intensive care medicine making it an impressive tome. The chapters are short, concise and to the point, and thus easy to read and understand. The book is wellillustrated and the layout is fresh and attractive. The key points, highlighted at the start of each chapter, provide a useful summary of each topic and the book in general is clinically-orientated, making it of value for the practicing clinician, as well as physicians in training. The book benefits from an impressive list of true experts from around the globe, giving it international appeal and insight—it is a real credit to the editors that so many leading authorities have contributed!
I believe textbooks still have an important role in providing a trustworthy source of knowledge. As different textbooks will have a slightly different focus, include different authors, and use various presentation formats they can complement each other. This book will occupy an important place in this field and is a highly recommended reference for all involved in the care of critically-ill patients
