Pediatric critical care in resource-limited settings: An overview (preprint)

Abstract: Paediatric critical care in lower resource settings can often become the responsibility of the anaesthetist, whether there has been formal training in paediatric care or not. Here we aim to provide an overview of the current state of pediatric critical care in resource-limited settings: the burden of illness and need, staffing, outcomes, and capacity. Barriers to the provision of consistent quality care are reviewed, as are ethical considerations at the level of the institution and the patient.
