Portable and easy to use, Rogers’ Handbook of Pediatric Intensive Care, Fifth Edition , contains key information from the best-selling Rogers’ Textbook in a handy format designed for everyday use. Nearly 100 chapters offer a clinically relevant synopsis of core information needed for quick reference and safe practice in the PICU.
New chapters cover Rapid Response Systems; Non-Invasive Ventilation; Abusive Head Trauma; Pulmonary Hypertension; Dengue and Other Viral Hemorrhagic Fevers (including Ebola); Gastrointestinal Bleeding; Diagnostic Imaging of the Abdomen; and more
Numerous tables and line drawings facilitate quick retrieval of information
This book is probably a decent quick-reference resource, but it isn’t a great text for learning pediatric critical care. I think complex topics such as congenital heart disease and post-cardiac surgery care really require detailed diagrams to make clear how “all the tubes are connected”, while respiratory and cardiac physiology are really best taught with diagrams explaining the relationships between different physical and physiologic parameters (ie flow-volume loops, etc). The explanations contained in the handbook simply don’t leave the reader with an intuitive understanding of complex anatomy and physiology/pathophysiology. It’s too bad, because it seems like the handbook could have included a few more diagrams without drastically increasing the size of the book.
If you need a quicker overview of the Roger’s textbook, this is a great resource. It’s much easier to get through as a review.
