This book, “Principles of Critical Care”, deals with critical care. Critical care in India and other developing countries is nascent and needs to strike deeper roots if it is to flourish and prosper. The history of critical care in this country started in the late sixties and early seventies with the establishment of coronary care units in Mumbai and in a few other big cities of India. Efficiently functioning critical care units in the foreseeable future will be largely confined to the big cities of this country. This book is largely based on author’s jottings and notes embodying my experience of problems in the diagnosis and management of critically ill patients over the last 30 years. Almost all the chapters have been revised and many of them have been extensively rewritten. These include the section on Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Cerebral Preservation in Adults, Clinical shock syndromes, Critical Care of the Transplant Patient, Nosocomial Infections, etc.
