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. 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 discussion on the importance of human factors
  • A new and improved design including full colour photographs and diagrams
