About this book


Intensive care in childhood is a relatively new field of medicine. Due to major differences in physiology and specific disease patterns, many disciplines are involved in the care of the critically ill child. Morbidity is determined both by the underlying disease and the application of ICU specific treatment modalities. Today we understand that the treatment of the critically ill child may have a great impact on the quality of life in adulthood. This book covers the whole spectrum of intensive care in childhood. It is based on the experience of leading specialists in the various fields involved in the treatment of these children.
