Manual of Pediatric Intensive Care Summary

Manual of Pediatric Intensive Care by Haresh M Kirpalani

The Manual of Pediatric Intensive Care distills the salient information required to provide state-of-the-art care for the acutely ill and injured child into a concise, readily useful guide. Providing timely and appropriate care is a daunting challenge for fontline caregivers, early response and transport teams and pediatric and critical care trainees. This manual delivers the basic information and practical advice needed by those who provide urgently needed care to children in a format that occupies the middle ground between the voluminous, highly detailed textbook and the 'to do' lists that provide no physiological background for the approach presented.

An introduction for beginners and a valuable aid for those already engaged in the care of acutely ill children, the Manual of Pediatric Intensive Care comprises contributions from specialists from around the world, including doctors, nurses, pharmacists and respiratory therapists.
