Case Studies in Pediatric Critical Care presents a spectrum of real and interesting case studies relating to critically ill children. Each case study includes details of the presenting history and symptomatology, results of investigations and the subsequent critical care management of the patient. Cases have been chosen to illustrate the increasingly diverse range of problems that may be encountered by pediatric critical care physicians throughout the world. Alongside each case is a comprehensive discussion of the various treatment strategies available, and a short list of invaluable learning points summarize the key take-home messages of each case. Concise, practical and relevant, and written by expert pediatric intensivists, Case Studies in Pediatric Critical Care is an invaluable resource for anyone involved in the care of critically ill children.
