    2nd year here. Any recommendations on reading for my ICU rotation? I had a MICU rotation as a july intern last year. Needless to say, the crit care learning took a back seat to learning how to order morning labs correctly etc. On the list is some reading to brush up on my vent settings.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    "The ICU Book" is the standard reading recommendation. Well done book, I like it.

    I second Marino's ICU Book. But I've also heard good things about Marini's Critical Care Medicine.

    I found listening to emcrit.. things like dominating the vent, sepsis etc. to be helpful. Also perusing through EMRap for critical care topics. That being said, we do a lot of ICU as interns in my program so as the senior resident in the ICU I have a decent amount of experience already and know what the attendings like or don't like when I'm overnight by myself.

    Like most things in medicine - it's more important that you read than you choosing the exact right book to read.
