Pediatric Critical Care Medicine Recommended Reading

 

1.       Primary Textbooks

We would recommend choosing one and trying to read systematically through the textbook, ideally within your first year of fellowship. Choices include:

2.        Key articles

Key Articles: These are important articles within critical care medicine that have informed much of our practice. Knowing the names and basic conclusions of these studies would be a good goal for a 2nd or 3rd year fellow. These were given to you on a flash drive and can also be found within the S Drive: CriticalCare/PCCMLibrary/MustknowArticles and summarized at:
