Your Critically Ill Child
Life and Death Choices Parents Must Face
by Christopher M. Johnson, M.D.
Perhaps the most difficult words parents will ever hear are: “Your child is critically ill.” Now, Dr. Christopher Johnson, the former director of the Mayo Clinic’s Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, lays out the full array of marvelous breakthrough medical technology and treatments today’s modern science has to offer severely ill children.
He reveals when they are called for, telling us how to support the child, what measures to apply and who to call in when treatment fails. Here is a book that provides helpful and compassionate tips and strategies every parent should be made aware of.
“Heartily recommended as the only book of its kind.”
