12 sections, spanning over 1000 pages, cover basic practical and surgical issues in paediatric intensive care, as well as conditions specific to various systems of the human body, including respiratory, circulatory neurological, gastroenterological (digestive) and hepatological (liver, gallbladder, pancreas) systems.

The penultimate section is on environmental injuries, including thermal burns, heat disorders and electric shock, and the book concludes with miscellaneous practical aspects of paediatric intensive care, such as quality improvement in the PICU (paediatric intensive care unit), and simulation based training and drugs in the PICU.

Included in this new edition are recent resuscitation guidelines (AHA PALS, 2010) and international ‘surviving sepsis’ guidelines (2012), along with a thorough update of all the latest information and technology in the field of paediatric critical care.

378 illustrations include updated flowcharts for several chapters, giving a quick overview of management of common PICU problems. Practical Approach to Pediatric Intensive Care serves as a complete guide to the day-to-day management of the PICU.
