Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David J. Dries, MD (University of Minnesota Medical School)
Description: This is the third edition of a multiauthored book of pediatric critical care.
Purpose: A comprehensive reference for intensive care of the child is presented. This third edition updates and expands the two previous editions, which have been standards in this field.
Audience: Any intensivist, whether trained in adult or pediatric critical care as principle specialty, will benefit from this work. The senior editor and many authors are from Duke University Medical Center.
Features: Ten sections and 50 chapters comprise this work. The organization is according to organ system, beginning with cardiopulmonary critical care and continuing through neurologic, immunologic, gastrointestinal, endocrine, hematologic, and surgical considerations. A new section on administrative issues, including quality improvement and outcome analysis, has been added. Chapters begin with an outline describing content using major and minor subheadings. Type texture separates different components of the chapters. Tables and black-and-white drawings are liberally provided but do not reproduce with consistent quality. Black-and-white photographs and reproductions of radiographs are adequate. Chapters conclude with ample reference lists. References date to within one to two years of publication. Although the table of contents provides chapter titles and authors only, a detailed index provides separate citations for tables.
Assessment: This third edition maintains the standard set by the two previous editions. Content in this attractively packaged hardbound text has been updated and placed in one volume of manageable size. Chapters are written in a conversational style and include descriptions of the physiology that supports critical care practice. This is a worthy addition to the bookshelf of any intensivist caring for the critically ill child.

Booknews
The new edition is in one volume instead of two (made possible through technological advances in printing and binding), so users won't have the bother of always reaching for the wrong volume, and so that the cost could be kept down (the second edition, 1992, was $195). The new volume contains 50 chapters, still arranged in 10 sections, and still retaining the organ system organization of the original, with each topic covering basic pathophysiology, patient management guidelines, and treatment protocols.
