Pediatric Critical Care Medicine: Basic Science and Clinical Evidence is a well-written, well-organized, and comprehensive textbook of pediatric critical care. If nothing else,
the editors of this new textbook must be commended for the sheer scope of their ambition. For a relatively specialized field, pediatric critical care medicine has a plethora of competing textbooks. This new book is clearly aimed to compete with the 3 standard references in the field: Pediatric Critical Care, by Fuhrmann and Zimmerman; Textbook of Pediatric Intensive Care,
by Rogers and Nichols; and Pediatric Critical Care Medicine, by Slonim, Pollack, Bell, and Berger.
