Abstract
General Ultrasound in the Critically Ill describes a bedside tool destined for use by the intensivist and any physician involved in emergencies. It specifically deals with findings of immediate clinical relevance throughout the body. New emergency applications of ultrasound in the abdomen, the vessels, the head and the heart are considered. The major topic, the lung, is extensively discussed. Interventional ultrasound forms part of nearly every chapter. Flow charts simplify daily concerns: acute dyspnea, shock, unexplained fever, etc. The strong points and pitfalls of ultrasound are reviewed. Technical notes are mingled with general considerations. Benefiting from the extensive experience of an intensivist intimately familiar with ultrasound, this book accurately answers most daily problems arising in the critically ill. it offers not only an exhaustive atlas but also a permanent aid to the therapeutic decision. All in all, General ultrasound in the critically ill provides a key for practicing a kind of visual medicine. Since 1990 Daniel Lichtenstein has been an intensivist in a medical ICU which already occupied a pioneering place in echocardiography. He has from the beginning devoted his efforts to the development of general ultrasound. He regularly publishes studies on lung ultrasound, his main topic, in the international literature.

Abstract
"The first section, Acute Headaches, includes those headaches that we all need to be aware of on a daily basis, particularly in the ER. These headache disorders can present challenges in diagnosis and treatment that are unique to emergency medicine. The second section, Episodic Headaches, is really the purview of office, clinic and consultant practice. This section includes a variety of common, and less common but interesting, primary headache disorders. Precise diagnosis of patients with episodic headaches leads to specific directed care and good outcomes in a large number of patients"--Provided by publisher.

Allowing for concise reading on specific topics this book acts as both text and study guide with the advanced physiology and pathophysiology required for the higher level PCCM practitioner. This Text and Review is physiologically based covering major pediatric critical care principles and specific disease entities commonly encountered by the PCCM practitioner. Pathophysiologic aspects unique to the pediatric patient are emphasized. The high number of illustrations and detailed coverage of each topic allow the reader to gain an insight into the normal physiology, abnormalities in the disease process, treatment strategies and case-orientated questions that will reinforce important ideas learned in the chapter.
