The book Manual of Pediatric Cardiac Intensive Care is written by Manoj Luthra. The ability to manage a pediatric cardiac surgical patient in the pre-and postoperative period is as important as the surgery itself. Undoubtedly, the continuous improvement in monitors, fans, and analyzers has made the task easier and the results today are better than ever. Despite the advancement, the precision of a medical device can only complement a doctor’s knowledge and practical skills, and will not prevent complications and errors in medical or surgical management. Much has been written about the prevention and management of complications and errors, but there is no substitute for simple protocols, checklists, and guidelines.
This book is an effort in that direction. Summarizes and reiterates accepted pre- and postoperative guidelines in intensive care for pediatric cardiac surgery patients. It has been my effort to prepare a kind of practical book that can be easily read at leisure and consulted at the bedside and provide relevant information with drug dosages and protocols. My goal is to keep the chapters short and highly relevant, providing simple solutions and explanations to clinical problems rather than detailed physiological explanations. Drugs relevant to the system under consideration has been presented in tables for easy reference at the point of care.
