One in 70 children are admitted to paediatric intensive care (PIC) at some time during childhood. Most paediatric junior doctors will rotate through PIC, and will be involved in organizing acute intensive care for critically ill children. The range of children and their illnesses going through PIC is vast, making it a hugely diverse specialty. A critically ill child will end up there regardless of their underlying disease, and as a result consultants in PIC must be true generalists and need to acquire knowledge and skills in all areas of paediatrics, as well as acquiring significant knowledge of anaesthesia and surgery.
From setting up the ventilator to managing low cardiac output, Paediatric Intensive Care gives practical and realistic advice for children's doctors and nurses in intensive care. Information is organized by system or specialty, and presented in easily accessible "5 minute chunks," making it easy to get the answers you need, but is also extensively cross-referenced so that different aspects of a particular clinical problem are also covered. The handbook contains answers to specific problems and provides guidance on how to manage specific issues, and will become an indispensable guide for all those who provide care for sick children.

Paediatric Intensive Care is an excellent text for basic pathophysiology, diagnostic pathways, and management guidelines. It is well suited for its target audience and serves as a ready reference for urgent or difficult critical-care questions. It was the only critical-care text I brought on a medical outreach trip to China, and the Chinese physicians specifically asked for this book for future use. The rest of my medical team intends to purchase personal copies. No more enthusiastic or genuine endorsement of this text's quality can be found. Respiratory Care ... a source of inspiration and knowledge for researchers who want to work in this field, and for health care planners who want to develop dignity and person centered care in their services.
