This book provides a concise yet comprehensive overview of pediatric acute respiratory distress syndrome (PARDS).

“This is a thorough and informative reference for health care providers who regularly or occasionally care for patients with PARDS; it is targeted to pediatric critical care providers, with pertinent sections for anesthesiologists as highlighted previously.” (Garrett Keim and Justin L. Lockman, Anesthesia & Analgesia, Vol. 131 (2), August, 2020)

“Pediatric intensivists as well as intensivists who care for critically ill adolescents and young adults are the core audience. Trainees, house staff, and fellows who are involved in the care of this patient population would also be well served by this book. … This book will provide an excellent framework to follow novel advances in the field which will surely spring from the new PARDS definition.” (Jacob Swann, Doody’s Book Reviews, March 20, 2020)
