Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Richelle Monier, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This book presents evidence-based assessments and management protocols for the critically ill/injured child during the first hour after their presentation. The previous edition was published in 1996.
Purpose: The purpose is to help direct the initial assessment and management protocols for frontline responders to take care of the critically ill/injured child during the first, or "golden," hour after presentation.
Audience: This book is targeted for EMTs, paramedics, nurses, pediatricians, emergency medicine physicians, pediatric surgeons, pediatric anesthesiologists, and pediatric intensivists
Features: It provides a systematic approach to the care of the critically ill/injured child during the initial hour after presentation. A particularly relevant new chapter on terrorism and mass casualty events is extremely informative.
Assessment: The quality of this book is exceptional for the targeted audience. The inclusion of new chapters on terrorism and mass casualty events justifies the replacement of the previous edition.
