Book Description

The second edition of Pediatric Critical Care Medicine is available in a portable document format (PDF) and spans three volumes, with main parts devoted to various organ systems. Each of the major sections is comprised of individual chapters that are devoted to doing an in-depth examination of the particular disease processes that are associated with each organ system. Every chapter comes to a close with a thorough list of references, as well as brief, succinct remarks that highlight references that are both “of interest” and “special interest.” Consequently, the ebooks are exceptional in both the breadth of pediatric critical care that they cover and the ease with which they can be utilized. As a result, they will be of use to both students preparing for pediatric critical care examinations and professionals who have already earned their credentials in this field.

P.S. Please find the PDF of Volume 1 attached here. There is also a volume 2 of this ebook available for purchase.
