About the Authors
  • The management of critically ill or injured children has become increasingly specialised; nevertheless, the first point of contact for many sick children remains their nearest hospital. Here, the initial management will usually involve emergency department doctors, anaesthetists and paediatricians. Managing the Critically Ill Child is written by anaesthetists and emergency department physicians who currently have a significant paediatric practice. It provides a straightforward guide for non-paediatricians encountering acutely unwell or injured children. This book helps readers apply their knowledge from adult practice to children, and avoid pitfalls where the approaches in paediatrics differ. Written in a practical, concise format, Managing the Critically Ill Child guides physicians beyond the initial emergency algorithms and is essential reading for physicians and trainees in emergency medicine, anaesthesia and intensive care who may be asked to look after a child.

    • Multidisciplinary perspective from anaesthetists and emergency department physicians who work in paediatric intensive care or a paediatric ED
    • Pitfalls in paediatric management are highlighted
    • Paediatric pathology is presented using a systematic approach, making this a quick reference text

    Reviews & endorsements

    'Registrars who are involved with initial care of paediatric patients in an emergency room should seriously contemplate making an investment in this guide. Furthermore, every anaesthesia department ought to get a library copy for younger specialist colleagues or for older specialists who only infrequently handle critically ill children.' British Journal of Anaesthesia

    '… the critical pediatric patient is one that can cause uncertainty and lead to underperforming from both physicians and their staff. That fact alone is one that makes this text relevant and a great reference for the novice to the seasoned provider participating in the acute care of ill or injured children.' Academic Emergency Medicine
