Managing the obese patient in critical care presents a host of challenges. Drug dosing, nutrition, and guidelines concerning sedation and pain management can all be affected, and different management strategies are often required to accommodate the patient's size

With contributions from a series of world experts in obesity management, Critical Care Management of the Obese Patient is your perfect guide to the clinical management of the obese patient in critical care. All co-morbidities, such as respiratory problems and infections, as well as the role of monitoring/imaging, are covered, and optimum post-operative management of the patient is discussed in detail. The controversies in prognosticating the outcome of patients, and the ethical issues that face critical care specialists are also addressed

Clearly and consistently structured throughout, a variety of tables, figures, and practice tips are located in each chapter to help identify areas of care and ensure rapid, easy browsing

Critical Care Management of the Obese Patient is essential reading for critical care physicians, obesity specialists, anaesthesiologists, and bariatric surgeons who, due to rising numbers of obese patients, increasingly have to deal with related problems in the hospital setting.
