Reviews

“Pediatric Critical Care—Current Controversies provides an excellent and detailed overview and is a valuable educational and practical resource for residents, critical care fellows, critical care attending physicians, and anyone else who is involved in the treatment of critically ill pediatric patients in the pediatric intensive care unit.” (Georg M. Schmölzer, Anesthesia & Analgesia, Vol. 130 (3), March, 2020)

“Senior trainees and attending providers in the disciplines of pediatric critical care, anesthesiology, trauma, and burn care are an appropriate audience. The authors of the presentations represent an impressive list of thought leaders in the management of critical illness in children. … This is an excellent overview of clinical challenges on the horizon of organ system support in pediatric intensive care medicine.” (David J. Dries, Doody's Book Reviews, May 10, 2019)
