The 3rd edition of the #1 go-to resource for veterinary critical care, Small Animal Critical Care Medicine, has been significantly updated to focus specifically on diagnostic and management strategies for the sickest veterinary patients. It covers critical care medical therapy, monitoring, and prognosis — from assessment and stabilization through the entire course of intensive care treatment. To make therapeutic decisions easier, clear and practical guidelines address underlying clinical findings, pathophysiology, outpatient follow-up, and long-term care. Editors Deborah Silverstein and Kate Hopper, along with leading experts from the veterinary emergency and critical care profession, have created this indispensable resource to help students learn how to provide the highest standard of care for critically ill patients.

    • Over 200 concise, thoroughly updated chapters cover all the clinical areas needed for evaluating, diagnosing, managing, and monitoring a critical veterinary patient.

    • A problem-based approach focuses on clinically relevant details.
    • Hundreds of full-color illustrations with updated photos and videos depict various emergency procedures, such as chest tube placement.
    • Handy appendices offer quick access to the most often needed calculations, conversion tables, continuous rate infusion determinations, reference ranges, and more.
    • Practical, user-friendly format makes reference quick and easy with summary tables, boxes highlighting key points, illustrations, and algorithmic approaches to diagnosis and management.
    • NEW! Coverage of high-flow nasal oxygen therapy and both core and advanced concepts for mechanical ventilation helps you deliver high-quality care to patients with respiratory failure.
    • NEW! Chapters on current critical care topics include Assessment of Intravascular Volume, Urine Osmolality and Electrolytes, and Infectious Disease Control in the ICU.
    • NEW! Chapters on novel procedures offer coverage of tracheal stents, urinary diversion techniques, and an in-depth review of point-of-care ultrasound with extensive figures and images.
    • NEW! Coverage of increasingly prevalent problems seen in the intensive care unit includes coagulation disorders of the critically ill patient, feline aortic thromboembolism, oxygen toxicity, and treatment of severe hypertension.
    • NEW! Chapters on shock fluid therapy and transfusion therapy provide cutting edge information on how to prevent complications and maximize resources.
    • NEW! Prevention of Compassion Fatigue and Burnout chapter addresses this major challenge currently affecting the veterinary profession.
    • NEW! Algorithms and figures throughout the text clarify key concepts and aid in diagnosis and treatment.
    • NEW! Enhanced eBook, included with the purchase of a new print copy of the book, provides online access to a fully searchable version of the text and makes its content available on various devices.
    • UPDATED! Coagulation section includes chapters on hemostasis, management of the bleeding patient, coagulation and platelet monitoring, and viscoelastic monitoring.
