The field of critical care medicine is in the midst of a dramatic change. Technological and scientific advances during the last decade have resulted in a fundamental change in the way we view disease processes, such as sepsis, shock, acute lung injury, and traumatic brain injury. Pediatric intensivists have been both witness to and active participants in bringing about these changes and it is imperative that all physicians caring for critically ill children in this new era have a thorough understanding of the applicability of these modern developments to the care of patients at the bedside and to keep up with the rapidly evolving field of critical care medicine. The care of the critically ill or injured child begins with timely. prompt. and aggressive resuscitation and stabilization. Ideally. stabilization should occur before the onset of organ failure in order to achieve the best possible outcomes. Resuscitation and Stabilization of the Critically Ill Child has been written by an international panel of experts to provide an in-depth review of the early recognition. resuscitation. and stabilization of the critically ill or injured child. This book is therefore an ideal reference for all involved in the management of the pediatric critically ill patient. from physicians. residents and fellows in critical care. pulmonology. cardiology and pediatricians to specialist nurses and support personnel on the pediatric critical care unit and all medical professionals that are involved in the management of these patients.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David J. Dries, MD (University of Minnesota Medical School)
Description: This softcover book contains 12 chapters from an earlier comprehensive work, Pediatric Critical Care Medicine: Basic Science and Clinical Evidence, by the same authors (Springer, 2007).
Purpose: A review of physiology and progress in pediatric resuscitation is emphasized.
Audience: Fellows and practitioners treating critically ill children are an appropriate audience for this work, which emanates from major pediatric centers in North America.
Features: After an overview of emergency medical services for children, adjuncts for cardiopulmonary support are described including airway, vascular access, and transportation medicine. Key clinical topics are discussed, including shock, respiratory failure, and brain death associated with considerations in withdrawal of life support. Chapters are well written and illustrated with high quality, black-and-white line drawings and black-and-white photographs of lesser quality. Each chapter contains extensive references dating to within three years of the date of publication.
Assessment: With this work, the authors have produced one of a series of softcover books providing an excellent overview of pediatric critical care. Historical foundation and physiology are effectively reviewed. A review of the references suggests that some of the chapters could be updated. As it appears this did not happen in the interval between the publication of the parent textbook in 2007 and this book, an opportunity to improve upon a good presentation may have been lost.
