This new textbook is the definitive evidence-based resource for pediatric critical care. Written primarily for clinicians and students of critical care, it will also be of great value to all who work with children on pediatric intensive care or general wards. Each major section consists of separate chapters dedicated to reviewing the specific disease processes affecting each organ system. Each chapter concludes with a comprehensive list of references, with brief, concise remarks denoting references of ‘special interest’ and ‘of interest’. Consequently, the book is unique in its comprehensive coverage of pediatric critical care and its ease of use.

From the reviews:
"... This text is the best-organized and most user-friendly critical care textbook ... The sections follow logically, and the design of the book makes it easy to access information on a wide variety of clinical situations ... Apart from Wheeler's text no other textbook in pediatric critical care medicine has made the clinical application of evidence-based medicine such a central focus ..." (A. A. Kon, JAMA 2008)
"This is a multidisciplinary pediatric care text. Details of beside management are carefully combined with the scientific basis of pediatric critical care practice. Senior practitioners and trainees in any of the disciplines touching care of the child will benefit from this work: the intensivist, the hospital pediatrician, the pediatric subspecialist, and the pediatric surgeon. ... This is superb presentation of bedside pediatric critical care principles with appropriate developmental biology, physiology, and molecular science. Excellent detail is provided on surgical procedures in trauma." (David J. Dries, Doody’s Review Service, September, 2007)
