The second edition of Pediatric Critical Care Medicine spans three volumes, with major sections dedicated to specific organ systems. Each major section consists of separate chapters dedicated to reviewing the specific disease processes affecting each organ system. Each chapter concludes with a comprehensive list of references, with brief, concise remarks denoting references of ‘special interest’ and ‘of interest’. Consequently, the books are unique in their comprehensive coverage of pediatric critical care and their ease of use and will be of value to those studying towards pediatric critical care examinations and those who are already qualified.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“The purpose is to provide a comprehensive overview of the science and practice of caring for critically ill children. The audience includes senior trainees and practitioners. … the book draws relevant comparisons to adult critical care practice. Thus, intensivists caring for patients at all ages will find this work relevant. I highly commend the editors and authors of this magnificent work and recommend its inclusion in the libraries of committed institutions or senior practitioners in the field.” (David J. Dries, Doody’s Book Reviews, September, 2014)
