This popular book on paediatric and neonatal transport medicine was first published in 2003 and has proved a successful guide for paediatric and neonatal ITU staff, prehospital and emergency department staff for the safe transfer of children and neonates, both from the scene of an accident and during intrahospital transfer. It is based on the course taught regularly at the Leicester Royal Infirmary. The editors devised and still run the course, which runs 5 times a year in the UK. Need for a new edition New aspects of transfer medicine in children and babies have emerged over the past three years and these should be addressed to bring the book completely up to date. In addition the editors are keen to improve the layout and make a standard format for each chapter, which will both improve the look of the book and make it easier to use. New authors will be invited to for some existing chapters, as well as for the new chapters. Specialists outside the area of paediatric critical care will be invited to contribute to this edition, as appropriate.
