About this book

This is the first comprehensive study guide covering all aspects of pediatric critical care medicine. It fills a void that exists in learning resources currently available to pediatric critical care practitioners. The major textbooks are excellent references, but do not allow concise reading on specific topics and are not intended to act as both text and study guide. There are also several handbooks available, but these are usually written for general pediatric residents and lack the advanced physiology and pathophysiology required for the higher level pediatric critical care practitioner

Reviews

From the reviews:

“For individuals seeking to master the essentials, pediatric Critical Care Study Guide: Text and Review will serve as an enormously valuable resource. … a highly informative, accessible, and enjoyable guide that will complement the intensivist’s library of cornerstone texts and high-impact journals. For the young intensivist, the guide will serve as a means of learning the essentials of the field … . For the more experienced intensivist, it will serve as a practical resource for regular reference as well as a review text for recertification.” (Carley Riley and Derek S. Wheeler, Journal of the American Medical Association, Vol. 308 (17), November, 2012)
