Pediatric Trauma: Pathophysiology, Diagnosis, and Treatment
The definitive text on the state-of-the-art in pediatric trauma care, this reference offers detailed descriptions of procedures in system design, pediatric resuscitation, supportive care, diagnostic imaging, pain management, and transfusion therapy by experts with hands-on experience in the field. Providing evidence-based recommendations, as well as current articles on rehabilitation, long-term outcomes, and infection control, this guide is invaluable for all professionals focusing on the needs of children with life and limb threatening injuries.
The book is divided into four sections. The first deals with trauma systems for
children, including epidemiology and preparations for pediatric trauma care. Section
two covers general principles of resuscitation and supportive care relevant to all
pediatric trauma patients. Section three covers the management of specific injuries.
Section four deals with rehabilitation and long-term outcomes and how to effectively
communicate with families, particularly when the outcome is not good.
