Children are an often overlooked and under-reported population medically affected by war and conflict. This pediatric version of Borden's popular Emergency War Surgery Handbook applies lessons learned in past and present conflicts to ill and injured pediatric casualties.

Topics include critical care, surgical treatment, and general medical management of acute and chronic conditions. Individual chapters address concerns such as anesthesia and intraoperative resuscitation, mechanical ventilation, aeromedical evacuation, thoracic surgery, surgery of the abdominal wall and diaphragm, fluid management, status epilepticus, care of the newborn, and emergency nutrition. Written and compiled by experts in the field of pediatric trauma.

This book is constructed in an easy-to-read bullet format for quick reference, and includes up-to-the moment treatment recommendations for ill or injured children in theaters of war and austere environments.
