Abstract
Pediatric Critical Care Study Guide; Text and Review is an invaluable resource for pediatric critical care medicine (PCCM) practitioners. Allowing for concise reading on specific topics this book acts as both text and study guide with the advanced physiology and pathophysiology required for the higher level PCCM practitioner. This Text and Review is physiologically based covering major pediatric critical care principles and specific disease entities commonly encountered by the PCCM practitioner. Pathophysiologic aspects unique to the pediatric patient are emphasized. The high number of illustrations and detailed coverage of each topic allow the reader to gain an insight into the normal physiology, abnormalities in the disease process, treatment strategies and case-orientated questions that will reinforce important ideas learned in the chapter.
