Handbook of pediatric and neonatal transport medicine
This is a practical manual for physicians, nurses, respiratory therapists and paramedic personnel involved in the emergency care of critically ill infants and children, as well as for emergency room and ambulance (ground and air) personnel who treat and stabilize this ever-growing patient population. The growing importance of this field was recognized by the American Academy of Pediatrics, which recently added a new section on transport medicine.
