Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David J. Dries, MD (University of Minnesota Medical School)
Description: This handbook of pediatric critical care is designed to accompany the companion hardbound text by the same authors entitled Textbook of Pediatric Intensive Care, 3rd Edition (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 1996.
Purpose: This is a handbook which includes clinical pearls and some of the background physiology contained in the parent text.
Audience: Medical students and junior residents are an appropriate audience for this work. Authors and editors are senior practitioners in pediatric critical care based predominantly in the eastern U.S.
Features: Twenty-nine chapters selected and summarized from the parent text and an appendix of physiologic formulas are included in 900 pages. For the most part, text content is organized according to organ system beginning with resuscitation considerations and proceeding through cardiopulmonary problems, toxin injury, trauma, transplantation, and infections, with a concluding chapter on perioperative care. Chapters are introduced by a table of contents, which clearly defines major and minor topics. Black-and-white figures and tables are frequently used. These reproduce well. Chapters contain no references with the exception of those found in some of the figures. Plain radiographs and CT scans reproduce with inconsistent quality. Occasional photographs are employed with adequate reproduction quality. The table of contents contains only chapter title and authors. A detailed index is provided with separate citations for tables.
Assessment: This handbook has been clearly updated from previous editions. In particular, descriptions of mechanical ventilation, transplantation management, and cardiac surgical procedures have been changed to reflect recent techniques. It is difficult, in the absence of references, to place the intellectual content of this handbook in temporal context. I note that publication of this handbook follows the parent work by three years. The reader is dependent on the parent textbook to support assertions made. An attractive feature is retention of a drug compendium in the appendix.
