Purpose: It is an extremely useful procedural manual for practitioners caring for children.
Audience: It is intended for nurses providing care to children, but it also is an excellent resource for nursing students and unlicensed assistive personnel caring for children.

Clinical guidelines, equipment needs, and educational suggestions are components of each chapter. Each chapter also addresses unexpected situations that may occur.
