This special issue of Children will feature recent advancements in the field of Pediatric Critical Care medicine. The PICU population is very heterogenous, therefore we will consider articles on diet, nutrition, infectious diseases, the field of “omics” (lipidomics, metabolomics, transcriptomics, genomics), sepsis, acute respiratory distress syndrome, oncology, emotional well-being, diagnostics, monitoring and prognostics, to name a few. Additional topics may include subjects related to health equity, psychosocial and general health outcomes and those epidemiological in nature. These are suggested subjects and all articles will be considered. Studies from an international community are encouraged. This special issue will be appropriate for the following readership: nurses, respiratory therapists, pharmacists, clinicians, dieticians, social workers, researchers and students.
Clinicians and researchers are invited to submit relevant scientific work, either original articles or review, to this Special Issue of Children “Advances in Pediatric Critical Care”.
Looking forward to your active participation.
Dr. Mara Leimanis Laurens
