Summary:This book is the first to address cognitive informatics (CI), a burgeoning discipline that cuts across several academic and professional disciplines. It contains examples drawn from the application of methods and theories from CI to challenges pertaining to the practice of critical care medicine and the management of life-threatening conditions. Cognitive Informatics in Health and Biomedicine: Case Studies on Critical Care, Complexity and Errors focuses on the unifying themes of cognition, complexity, and the management of error in critical care practice and has been written by distinguished scholars who are leaders in their respective fields. The results reflect the interdisciplinary strengths of cognitive science, and offer a fresh insight into ways to investigate and mitigate errors and the role of health information technology in complex, dynamic environments such as the emergency room and the intensive care unit. The book will be of interest to students and a broad range of researchers in cognitive science, human factors, biomedical informatics, psychology, critical care specialists, computer science, linguists and anthropology
