This Special Issue focuses on "Pediatric and Neonatal Intensive Care". Significant progress has been made in the field of pediatric and neonatal intensive care over the past decade. Pediatric critical care medicine emerged in the 1970s and has expanded dramatically since then. The field has made major advances in the areas of lung injury, sepsis, head injury, and postoperative care. The role of the pediatric intensivist is to provide supportive care during cardiorespiratory and/or multiorgan failure or recovery from surgery or trauma. In addition, care often continues even after discharge since we are often dealing with children with a high demand for care complexity. Intensivists coordinate complex treatment plans with multiple participants to assist in the care of critically ill children. The first approach to the critical child often takes place in the pediatric emergency room. Thus, the pediatrician must be able to filter out those children who need intensive care and provide basic necessities.
Submissions of original articles, systematic reviews, short communications, and other types of articles on related topics are welcome. All manuscripts will follow standard journal peer review practices, and those accepted for publication will appear in the Special Issue on "Challenges and Advances in Pediatric and Neonatal Critical Care". We look forward to receiving your contributions to the Special Issue.
