Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


The critical care management of cirrhotic patients involves a multidisciplinary team approach, including the hepatologist and intensivist, to address life-threatening complications and to provide comprehensive care for multi-organ failure commonly seen in these patients. A systematic approach to the diagnosis and therapy of multi-organ system dysfunction is essential to optimize the intensive care management of these complex patients, with a goal to stabilize them for possible liver transplantation. This review provides a system-based approach for the intensive care management of critically ill cirrhotic patients.
