Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Thomas P. Green, MD (Children's Memorial Hospital)
Description: This book is a concise compilation of protocols, algorithms, treatment outlines, and descriptions of procedures for the initial management of the critically ill child. This is the second edition and a substantial revision of a text originally published in 1991.
Purpose: The authors point out in their preface that the initial management of a critically ill or injured child is complex, but time is vital. Protocols that promote efficient and effective evaluation and initiation of treatment result in better outcomes. The authors have considerable experience and expertise at Johns Hopkins Hospital in this area and are well qualified to write a definitive text.
Audience: A wide audience should appreciate and benefit from this book. Medical students and residents will find this an excellent source of comprehensive and compact information for a wide variety of problems. Seasoned practitioners of critical care and emergency medicine will find useful nuances for comparison with their practice, perhaps especially with some of the less commonly encountered disorders.
Features: In general the book is well formatted and easy to use. Readers can rapidly access information via the table of contents or a comprehensive index. The size and thickness of the volume are similar to that of the Harriet Lane Handbook, which countless house officers have found convenient and accessible.
Assessment: This book will be a useful addition to the clinical literature of pediatric critical care medicine. Frequent revisions will be needed for this book to keep pace with this rapidly changing specialty.
