Written in a friendly, no-nonsense, style, Children in Intensive Care is a quick reference guide to the management of the acutely ill child in the hospital, or pre-hospital, setting.

Fully updated throughout and rich with useful 'Alert' boxes and tables - to make learning and reference easy - this handy publication covers a broad range of essential topics such as drug dosages and compatibilities and normal reference ranges as well as harder to find information such as chest X-ray interpretation and troubleshooting technical equipment.

Compiled from daily 'on the job' collation of useful facts and figures, this manual also offers practical advice about important non-acute issues such as infection control, common childhood diseases and child protection as well as new findings on the management of sepsis, the collapsed child and care of the child following spinal surgery.

With over 10,000 copies sold, this book is an absolute must for any clinician involved with the management of critically ill children, whether it be on the wards, in theatres, high-dependency or intensive care units, as well as during retrieval and in A&E.
