picuBOOK: An interactive multilingual textbook for pediatricians

Overview

picuBOOK is an interactive multilingual text book aimed at the pediatric intensive care community. It is constantly being updated, with new sections being incorporated on a regular basis. There are two additions for May; inflicted head injury and mechanical ventilation in asthma. This would appear to be a very useful resource.
