This second edition spans four volumes, with major sections dedicated to specific organ systems. Each major section consists of separate chapters dedicated to reviewing the specific disease processes affecting each organ system. Each chapter concludes with a comprehensive list of references, with brief, concise remarks denoting references of ‘special interest’ and ‘of interest’. Consequently, the books are unique in their comprehensive coverage of pediatric critical care and their ease of use and will be of value to those studying towards pediatric critical care examinations and those who are already qualified.

The specialty of pediatric critical care medicine continues to grow and evolve! The modern PICU of today is vastly different, even compared to as recently as 5 years ago. Technological innovations in the way we approach the diagnosis and treatment of critically ill children have seemingly changed overnight in some cases. Efforts at prevention and improvements in care of patients prior to coming to the PICU have led to better outcomes from critical illness. The outcomes of conditions that were, even less than a decade ago, almost uniformly fatal have greatly improved. Advances in molecular biology have led to the era of personalized medicine – we can now individualize our treatment approach to the unique and specific needs of a patient. We now routinely rely on a vast array of condition-specific biomarkers to initiate and titrate therapy. Some of these advances in molecular biology have uncovered new diseases and conditions altogether! At the same time, pediatric critical care medicine has become more global. We are sharing our knowledge with the world community. Through our collective efforts, we are advancing the care of our patients. Pediatric critical care medicine will continue to grow and evolve – more technological advancements and scientifi c achievements will surely come in the future. We will become even more global in scope. However, the human element of what pediatric critical care providers do will never change [1]. I remain humbled by the gifts that I have received in my life. And I still remember the promise I made to myself so many years ago – the promise that I would dedicate the rest of my professional career to advancing the field of pediatric critical care medicine as payment for these gifts. It is my sincere hope that the second edition of this textbook will educate a whole new generation of critical care professionals, and in so-doing help me continue my promise.
