About this book

This volume provides an overview of the most important current controversies in the field of pediatric intensive care. Organized into sections based on organ systems, the text focuses on controversies surrounding disease processes of the cardiac, respiratory, gastrointestinal, hematologic / immunologic, endocrine, and neurologic systems. Each chapter reviews the pros and cons of specific management approaches through case studies and the most up-to-date evidence-based resources, and concludes with bulleted take-home points for ease of use. 
 Written by experts in the field, Pediatric Critical Care: Current Controversies is a valuable resource for intensivists, advanced practice providers, nurses, and other health care providers involved in the care of critically-ill children.

Reviews

“Senior trainees and attending providers in the disciplines of pediatric critical care, anesthesiology, trauma, and burn care are an appropriate audience. The authors of the presentations represent an impressive list of thought leaders in the management of critical illness in children. … This is an excellent overview of clinical challenges on the horizon of organ system support in pediatric intensive care medicine.” (David J. Dries, Doody's Book Reviews, May 10, 2019)
