marini/wheeler: CCM the essentials
Quick plug for this book. I felt that it was well written; basic enough to get through in a month but detailed enough to understand the concepts. As an intern, you need something that gives you the info. in a way that is digestible and readable. Dr. Wheeler was one of my attendings during my 1.5 mos. of MICU this year, and he is unbelievable. He told me a new version will be coming out soon that he believes will be even better, I plan on getting it when it is released.
I also really enjoyed Marino (I've got a month of neuro ICU and a month of SICU on top of my MICU this year) and thought it was a little easier to read than CCM: The Essentials.
Haven't seen the Wash Manual of CC, will have to check it out.
Veronica Corningstone: My God, what is that smell? Oh!
Brian Fantana: That's the smell of desire my lady.
Veronica Corningstone: God no, it smells like, like a used diaper... filled with... Indian food! Oh, excuse me.
Brian Fantana: You know, desire smells like that to some people
