Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Richelle Monier, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This is the third edition of a comprehensive review of the field of pediatric critical care. The second edition was published in 1998.
Purpose: This edition was written in an attempt to provide an extensive revision, reorganization, and rewrite to reflect the tremendous growth in the field. It is also constructed to provide a tighter integration of science and practice. The authors have fulfilled these worthy objectives.
Audience: It is written for students, residents, fellows, and pediatric intensivists.
Features: The book is organized based on various organ systems. It does an excellent job of reviewing recent scientific advances and incorporating them into the pathophysiology and treatment of pediatric critical care patients.
Assessment: This high quality book is one of the two major textbooks in this field and it complements the other one, Textbook of Pediatric Intensive Care, 3rd edition (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 1996). This book, however, provides the reader with clinical descriptions that are extensively integrated with bench research. This latest edition justifies replacing the previous edition due to the tremendous growth of new information in the field.
