A new textbook for intensivists, entitled Hemodynamic Monitoring, was published recently and will be available for purchase at the 39th International Symposium on Intensive Care and Emergency Medicine in Brussels, March 19-22, 2019. The book, edited by Michael Pinsky, MD, Jean-Louis Teboul, MD, PhD, and Jean-Louis Vincent, MD, PhD, is part of the European Society of Intensive Care Medicine textbook series ‘Lessons from the ICU.’

The book covers topics of value to critical care fellows and to experienced intensivists seeking to hone their skills. 

Topics include:

  • Physiology and pathophysiology
