This international bestselling book on acute paediatric care is the coursebook for the Advanced Life Support Group’s Advanced Paediatric Life Support (APLS). It uses their practical approach, a tried and tested method of treating children during the crucial first few hours of a life threatening condition. 

This edition has been adapted specifically for use in Australia and New Zealand, with the latest procedures, medications and clinical best practice to match the guidelines of the Australia and New Zealand Resuscitation Councils.

Advanced Paediatric Life Support is used in emergency and paediatric departments by physicians, nurses and allied health professionals, and its clear layout and straightforward style make it a highly practical tool both for training and in the event of an emergency.

The fifth edition includes major new features bringing it right up to date, including:

  • The latest International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR) 2010 Guidelines
  • A new and improved design including full colour photographs and diagrams
  • Fully adapted for use in Australia and New Zealand
  • New sections for Australasian-specific practice, including envenomation, burns, triage, neonatal resuscitation and formulary

With this book at hand, paediatric and emergency staff can be confident in having comprehensive and authoritative guidance on the first principles of recognising life threatening conditions through to all the procedures necessary to save a child’s life.
