L'uso di dispositivi per accesso venoso è fondamentale per ogni paziente che necessita di prelievi ripetuti, nutrizione artificiale, chemioterapia, antibioticoterapia o qualunque altro trattamento per via endovenosa, sia in ambito sia ospedaliero che domiciliare: la grande novità degli ultimi dieci anni in questo campo è stata la improvvisa e straordinaria diffusione dei PICC e Midline, cateteri venosi inseriti con tecnica ecoguidata, il cui impianto è affidato sia a medici che a infermieri propriamente addestrati. L'introduzione e diffusione dei PICC in Italia è legata storicamente proprio alla attività scientifica e didattica degli autori del presente manuale. Il volume fornisce le indicazioni cliniche di tali dispositivi e illustra, con l'ausilio di numerose foto, i dettagli per l'impianto e per la loro gestione in diversi scenari clinici. Il volume prende in esame anche le caratteristiche tecniche dei materiali, tutti gli aspetti relativi alla rimozione, alla sostituzione e le modalità di prevenzione delle complicanze.

Venous access devices are necessary for any patient requiring re- peated blood sampling, parenteral nutrition, chemotherapy, antibiotic therapy or other IV treatments to be delivered in the hospital setting or at home. In the last decade, ultrasound-guided PICCs and Midline catheters – inserted by adequately trained physicians or nurses - have suddenly and widely spread in the eld of venous access devices all over the world. The introduction and diffusion of PICCs in Italy has been historical- ly linked to the GAVeCeLT association (the Italian Group of Long Term Venous Access Devices) and particularly to the authors’ scienti c and didactic activity. This volume examines the clinical indications for these devices and illustrates the details of their insertion and management in several clinical settings. Furthermore, all the speci cations regard- ing the materials to use and all the aspects related to device removal and replacement, as well as the different strategies for complications prevention, are thoroughly discussed.

Over the past two decades it has been increasingly recognized that whole-body ultrasound is an invaluable tool in the critically ill. In addition to offering rapid whole-body assessment, it has the advantage of being a bedside approach that is available at all times and can be repeated at will. Accordingly, it permits the immediate institution of appropriate therapeutic management. Whole-Body Ultrasound in the Critically Ill is the sequel to the author’s previous books on the subject, which were first published in French in 1992 and 2002 and in English in 2004. This new volume reflects the latest state of knowledge by including a variety of improvements, revised definitions, and updated algorithms. Findings in respect of individual organs are clearly presented, and a particular feature is the in-depth coverage of the lungs, traditionally regarded as an area unsuitable for ultrasound. Throughout, the emphasis is on the practical therapeutic impact of the technique. Its value in a variety of settings, including unexplained shock, management of hemodynamic instability, acute respiratory failure (the BLUE protocol), and the critically ill neonate, is carefully explained. Interventional ultrasound and less widely recognized applications, such as mesenteric infarction, pneumoperitoneum, and intracranial hypertension, are also described. Pitfalls of the technique receive due attention. Today, whole-body ultrasound touches upon every area of critical care. This book, from the chief pioneer in the field, shows that the technique enables critical care physicians to detect therapeutically relevant signs easily and quickly. It will serve as an invaluable guide to the practice of a form of visual medicine.
