3 Stars from Doody
Ernest N. Kraybill
This new, multiauthor book covers practical and theoretical aspects of prehospital and interhospital transport of critically ill or injured infants and children. The purpose is to bring together in a convenient format information that has accumulated in the past two decades of pediatric and neonatal transport medicine, in conjunction with summaries of the pathophysiology of the disorders in this age group that require intensive medical care. The book is intended for physicians, nurses, therapists, and paramedics who are members of pediatric and neonatal transport teams. It could also serve as a reference manual for those who work in hospital intensive care units for infants and or children, especially those who transport such patients within hospitals. There are numerous useful tables, although they contain a considerable amount of overlap. The reproduction of radiographs is of variable quality. The index is easy to use and appears to be complete. The overall appearance and readability of the book is excellent. The treatment algorithms in the appendixes are especially useful. This is an important and useful book that will serve its intended purpose well. It should be made available to all those who have the responsibility of transporting critically ill infants and children.
