"It provides a systematic approach to the care of the critically ill/injured child during the initial hour after presentation. A particularly relevant new chapter on terrorism and mass casualty events is extremely informative.The quality of this book is exceptional for the targeted audience. The inclusion of new chapters on terrorism and mass casualty events justifies the replacement of the previous edition." - Richelle Monier, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation) 5 star Doody Rating!
