    Tarascon's internal medicine and critical care pocketbook, I never leave home without it.

    Two others you might consider are either the NNCC Checkmate Series or Kathy White's Fast Facts.

    Both are good references. The Checkmate will fit in a scrub pocket and the Fast Facts in a lab coat pocket.

    I think oxford handbook of intensive care is a good reference book
