Addendum to Handbook of Peri-operative Medicines (1st Edition): Please note that on Page 56, under the Section ‘Advice in the peri-operative period’, the final sentence should read “In critically ill patients, proton pump inhibitors are more effective than H2-receptor antagonists at lowering gastrointestinal bleeding9.”
