Riassunto: Now completely revised and updated, this comprehensive text/reference covers all aspects of caring for the critically ill child. Recognizing that children are not simply small adults, it discusses the differences between critical care of adults and that of children, exploring relevant structural and functional aspects, pathophysiology, and treatment of common diseases that afflict and critically injure children. Physiology, biochemistry, and molecular biology are all included, with an emphasis on clinically applicable information. The clear, logical organ-system approach includes development, function, disease, and treatment for each entity, and helps the reader relate normal function, pathophysiology, and treatment to clinical problems.
Comprehensive, with all information presented in one convenient volume. Easy-to-use, consistent format addresses the total care of the critically ill child. Research chapter is highly informative and entertaining, answering questions for those considering research and those now primarily involved in it. Multidisciplinary in approach: pharmacology, nursing, administration, ethics -- all are addressed. Excellent balance of detail and practical approaches, such as the post-op care of cardiovascular surgery and liver transplant patients. Includes new therapeutic approaches, giving current regimens for pediatric critical care illnesses and injuries. New chapters include perfluorocarbons, pediatric renal replacement therapy, and post-op liver transplantation care.
