A full chapter concentrates exclusively on core treatment guidelines and algorithms for pediatric trauma management. Each chapter presents information on basic principles, technical skills, and standards of care in an easy-to-reference list format that allows the busy practitioner quick access to key information and thus facilitates faster diagnoses.
