In the book, topics covered include emergency measures, breathing, circulation, vascular access and drug therapy, monitoring equipment, organ systems, also pathophysiology, diagnosis and management of problems in the cardiovascular system - shock, dysrhythmias, hypertensive crisis, the central nervous system - diffuse cerebral edema, asphyxia, menningitis, and respiratory failure. The continued establishment of paediatric intensive care units and the increased chances for survival of these patients demand practical, reliable management tools. This handy manual lays forth regimens and advice for all major medical problems, concentrating on cardiovascular, respiratory and central nervous system diseases. Practical matters such as maintaining airways, blood volume and vascular access are described. Pathophysiology is encapsulated as it applies to diagnosis and management, and crucial special topics such as emergencies and monitoring are fully described. The book provides a ready source of information for everyone working in or rotating through the paediatric ICU.
