This is the third edition of The Washington Manual of Critical Care, building on the long tradition of The Washington Manual of Medical Therapeutics, and the two prior Critical Care manuals. This project was originally inspired by the expanding knowledge base in critical care medicine and the demands this places on health care professionals treating critically ill patients. Our primary goal in preparing this manual is to provide clinicians and students with comprehensive and current treatment algorithms for the bedside diagnosis and management of the most frequently encountered illnesses and problems encountered in the intensive care unit (ICU) setting. Since the last edition we have included new chapters on extracorporeal membrane oxygenation and the management of the transplant patient in the ICU. We have also revamped most of the existing chapters to keep them up to date with the expanding medical literature. The chapters were written by Washington University faculty physicians and experts in their fields from the Departments of Internal Medicine, Neurology, Surgery, Obstetrics and Gynecology, and Anesthesiology, often with the assistance of subspecialty fellows and residents. The tables and algorithms that accompany each chapter are meant as guides and may not be appropriate for all patients. Further reading of the literature is always encouraged and this manual is expected to be used in conjunction with trained critical care clinicians. We would especially like to give our sincerest thanks to Becky Light for her tireless efforts in preparing chapters and for acting as the liaison between the Pulmonary and Critical Care Department, the chapter’s authors, and Lippincott Williams & Wilkins.
