Pediatric Critical Care

by Mohammed El-Naggar

Pediatric critical care is the field of medicine dealing with acute life-threatening conditions in children. Emergency medical service in children (EMS-C) can be provided in emergency departments, intermediate care units or intensive care units depending on the severity of the condition, the duration of therapy and the necessity for sophisticated equipment. For instance, an episode of acute severe asthma can be successfully managed in emergency department, admitted and treated in intermediate care unit or transferred to an intensive care unit. In critical care medicine and whatever the emergency, treatment should always start with the ABC (airway, breathing and circulation). As time is very precious, treatment should not be delayed until accurate history and detailed examination are made. Detailed evaluation should be only made after initial stabilization. In this new edition, many of the topics are updated to the latest available knowledge. The book becomes more illustrated with many new pictures and drawings. Two new sections (colored) on Pediatric ICU Equipment and Pediatric ICU Environment are added.
