Critical Care of Children with Heart Disease will summarize the comprehensive medical and surgical management of the acutely-ill patient with congenital and acquired cardiac disease. The aim of the book is to teach bedside physicians, nurses and other caregivers, basic and practical concepts of anatomy, pathophysiology, surgical techniques and peri-operative management of critically ill children and adults with congenital heart disease, allowing these professionals to anticipate, prevent or else treat such pathologies. The book will cover specific cardiac lesions, review their anatomy, pathophysiology, current preoperative, intraoperative and postoperative assessment and management; medical and surgical complications will be briefly described with each lesion further discussed in specific chapters. In addition, the book will have dedicated chapters to management of cardiac patients on extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, hemofiltration, hemo or peritoneal dialysis and plasma exchange. Practical guidelines for cardiovascular nursing care will be also included.

Radiological Imaging of the Digestive Tract in Infants and Children Book Review:

This book comprehensively reviews imaging of the pediatric gastrointestinal tract and accessory digestive organs from a practical approach. Starting with a brief discussion on techniques this is followed by a couple of comprehensive chapters covering emergency/acute pediatric abdominal imaging. A series of traditional anatomically structured chapters on the oesophagus, stomach, small bowel, colon and accessory organs then follow. Each chapter carefully considers the role of the currently available imaging techniques and discusses and illustrates diagnostic dilemmas. The closing chapter focuses on pediatric interventional procedures performed with imaging guidance. Since the first edition, the text has been fully updated and new illustrations included. Against the background of rapid advances in imaging technology and the distinctive aspects of gastrointestinal imaging in children and infants, this volume will serve as an essential reference for general and pediatric radiologists as well as for radiologists in training, neonatologists and pediatricians.

Rational Therapeutics for Infants and Children Book Review:

The Institute of Medicine's (IOM's) Roundtable on Research and Development of Drugs, Biologics, and Medical Devices evolved from the Forum on Drug Development, which was established in 1986. Sponsor representatives and IOM determined the importance of maintaining a neutral setting for discussions regarding long-term and politically sensitive issues justified the need to revise and enhance past efforts. The new Roundtable is intended to be a mechanism by which a broad group of experts from the public* and private sectors can be convened to conduct a dialogue and exchange information related to the development of drugs, biologics, and medical devices. Members have expertise in clinical medicine, pediatrics, clinical pharmacology, health policy, health insurance, industrial management, and product development; and they represent interests that address all facets of public policy issues. From time to time, the Roundtable requests that a workshop be conducted for the purpose of exploring a specific topic in detail and obtaining the views of additional experts. The first workshop for the Roundtable was held on April 14 and 15, 1998, and was entitled Assuring Data Quality and Validity in Clinical Trials for Regulatory Decision Making. The summary on that workshop is available from IOM. This workshop summary covers the second workshop, which was held on May 24 and 25, 1999, and which was aimed at facilitating the development and proper use of drugs, biologics, and medical devices for infants and children. It explores the scientific underpinnings and clinical needs, as well as the regulatory, legal, and ethical issues, raised by this area of research and development.

Opioid Therapy in Infants Children and Adolescents Book Review:

Opioid analgesics are among the most effective medications for pain management but are associated with serious and increasing public health problems, including abuse, addiction, and death from overdose. Currently, there is an opioid epidemic in the United States with the rate of prescription opioid-related overdose deaths quadrupling over the last 15 years. Pediatric patients are particularly vulnerable to the devastating consequences of opioid misuse. Adolescents who are prescribed opioids are at a higher risk for abusing illicit drugs later in life. Clinicians managing pediatric pain must account for such issues while still delivering effective analgesia to young patients who suffer from both acute and chronic pain. Opioid Therapy in Children and Adolescents is designed to explore the unique aspects of opioid therapy in pediatric patients. An introductory framework provides historical context and describes the epidemiology of the opioid crisis with focus on pediatric implications. Subsequent chapters focus on pediatric opioid pharmacology, safe opioid prescribing practices, and non-opioid alternatives to managing pediatric pain states, including multimodal analgesic strategies, interdisciplinary approaches, and complementary medicine. Mitigation strategies against pediatric opioid diversion and misuse are addressed to help clinicians develop practice changes that protect pediatric patients from opioid-related morbidity and mortality. Clinical case examples are also utilized throughout the text to provide grounding for each chapter and a context within which to examine pertinent issues. This first of its kind book provides a comprehensive approach that will guide clinicians to appropriately and safely prescribe opioid analgesics to pediatric patients suffering from pain. It is an invaluable resource for pediatricians, family practitioners, anesthesiologists, pediatric oncologists, and other clinicians who manage pediatric pain.

Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura Book Review:

Thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura is a life-threatening occlusive disorder of the microcirculation that is characterized by systemic platelet agglutination, organ ischaemia, severe thrombocytopenia and fragmentation of red blood cells. In the opening study included in Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura: Causes, Diagnosis and Treatment, the authors analyze the principal risk factors and causes of this disorder.Thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura is diagnosed using standard laboratory tests: in addition to microangi-opathic hemolytic anemia and consumption thrombocytopenia, classical parameters for hemolysis show an elevated reticulocyte count, an undetectable serum haptoglobin concentration, and a markedly elevated lactate dehydrogenase level as well as the presence of schistocytes on the blood smear.The authors propose that there are other pathologies with moderate thrombocytopenia that we should consider, such as: hereditary thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura, hereditary hemolytic uremic syndrome, and thrombotic microangiopathies associated with some medications, transplantation or hidden malignancies.The closing chapter aims to revise the management of thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura in pregnant women. To effectively manage this disorder, it is crucial to obtain a prompt diagnosis, in conjunction with further monitoring and treatment, to avoid fetal loss and maternal complications.
