This is a comprehensive resource for clear explanations of both the principles underlying pediatric critical care disease and trauma as well as how these principles are applied in clinical practice. This title includes a new appendix of critical care equations for quick reference of essential information, cross-linked pages and references for easy navigation, and the ability to take and share notes with colleagues.
