The work included a particular emphasis on pre-ICU hospital settings and resource-limited settings. The work focused on four main questions: (1) What is the role of clinical assessment to guide fluid resuscitation in shock? (2) What basic monitoring is required to perform and interpret a fl...

Thoracic surgery for infectious conditions is more likely to develop intraoperative bleeding. Judicious use of antimicrobial agents, in addi...
