Hemostasis Management of the Pediatric Surgical Patient PDF Summary

The coagulation system of children evolves with age, as evidenced by marked physiological differences in the concentration of hemostatic proteins between children of different age groups and adults, and consequently there are distinct differences in hemostatic management between adult and pediatric patients. Hemostasis Management of the Pediatric Surgical Patient is a single source of knowledge to the emerging new area of pediatric hemostasis and its management. This book discusses several important aspects of perioperative blood management in the pediatric population, including how to accurately estimate and monitor bleeding and how to determine optimal treatment regimens for bleeding in pediatric surgical patients. It also provides detailed information on implementation of intraoperative blood conservation strategies and goal-directed transfusion therapy, and postoperative estimation of the bleeding and thrombotic risks. This book is a valuable resource to pediatric practitioners and researchers who need comprehensive information on pediatric hematology, from the basic physiology about congenital and acquired diseases to pre-, intra- and postoperative care of pediatric patients.
