Overview

Now completely revised and updated, this definitive, easy-to-use text guides you through all aspects of caring for the critically ill child. The clear, logical organ-system approach addresses development, function, disease, and treatment for a full range of disease entities. This new edition includes chapters covering hemodynamic principles, diagnostic and therapeutic cardiac catheterization, congenital malformations of brain and spinal chord, and gastrointestinal pharmacology. A completely new section has been added that considers the failure of organ systems. Multidisciplinary in approach, the book addresses pharmacology, nursing, administration, ethics, and other areas of concern to the whole pediatric ICU team.

• Completely revised by dozens of new contributors.
• Contains new chapters covering hemodynamic principles; diagnostic and therapeutic cardiac catheterization; congenital malformations of brain and spinal cord; gastrointestinal pharmacology; and a new section on Failure of Organ Systems.
• Provides a more detailed and complete understanding of the scientific basis of critical care.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: 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.
From the Publisher
"The Trauma and Burns section is the best pediatric trauma reference I have encountered in any text" —Critical Care Medicine

"A text that has become the standard in most pediatric ICUs."—JAMA

"The current edition of this textbook is advertised as the 'text that has become the standard in most pediatric intensive care units.' This latest edition certainly aspires to this billing as its 119 chapters in 1,871 pages combine a thorough overview of the medical specialty with a comprehensive organ systems approach to basic science, physiology and clinical medicine...Overall, this reference textbook provides a solid and complete overview of pediatric intensive care practice...[T]his current edition of Pediatric Critical Care will certainly become a standard 'one-stop' reference text for consultants, fellows, and residents in pediatric critical care." —Canadian Journal of Anesthesia
