Overview

In Pediatric Critical Review, Board certified pediatric critical care physicians uniquely capture the essence of the most common critical care scenarios in a series of carefully crafted questions and answers. With their crisp and clear explanations, detailed references, and pertinent pictures, the authors illuminate-in an easy to read format-the essential facts and latest findings concerning the diagnosis and treatment of critical problems in the respiratory, cardiovascular, central nervous, endocrine, and gastrointestinal systems. Drawing on years of practical experience, they illuminate with simple straightforward explanations the major clinical issues involved in the critical care of pediatric infectious diseases, hematology, oncology, immunology, metabolic disorders, pain management, and traumatology.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David J. Dries, MD (University of Minnesota Medical School)
Description: This is a multiauthor, multidisciplinary book of review questions in pediatric critical care.
Purpose: Clinical scenarios are provided to illustrate key aspects of pediatric critical care pathophysiology. Decision-making and case analysis are emphasized.
Audience: Trainees preparing for review for in training exams and practitioners preparing for board exams are appropriate groups to use this work. Authors are from pediatric critical care programs in the Untied States.
Features: This softcover monograph is accompanied by a CD-ROM with reproduction of the questions and answers. The chapters parallel an organ system approach to critical care beginning with the cardiopulmonary system and continuing through infections, central nervous system, hematology, gastroenterology, and renal, endocrine, and immunologic systems. Six concluding chapters have multisystem content including metabolic disorders specific to children, pain management, pharmacology, trauma and environmental injury, statistics and ethical considerations. Most of the answers to questions refer to a small list of textbooks, which are cited at the end of the monograph. The majority of questions are from the Textbook of Pediatric Intensive Care, 3rd edition (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 1996). Questions are well written and are presented in a variety of formats including true/false, matching, and multiple choice. There are no line drawings or photographs, but there are occasional brief tables of data. Questions in each chapter are presented as a group with answers compiled in a parallel set of chapters at the conclusion of the monograph.
Assessment: This is a worthy tool for board preparation. However, I am concerned by the lack of photographs and frequent citation of textbooks, which date to the mid to late 1990s. The CD-ROM allows the opportunity to include images, but contributors do not take advantage of this opportunity.
