About the book

Pediatric trauma is a global phenomenon afflicting a severe burden of morbidity and mortality, in both developed and developing countries. The most common causes of pediatric trauma include poisoning, burns, falls, and pedestrian accidents. As many of the cases require surgery, pediatric trauma teams are ordinarily composed of on-call pediatric or specialty-specific surgeons, pediatricians, radiologists, anesthetists, intensive care professionals, and specialist nursing staff. Moreover, modifications to conventional adult surgical techniques, as well as other specific care consideration, are essential in the pediatric context, such as appropriate exposure to pediatric radiation doses. On the other hand, given that pediatric trauma and injury are often preventable conditions, the formulation and implementation of effective injury prevention programs by health authorities and governments may well decrease their burden. Given these considerations, this book aims to address new discoveries and perspectives for the management of pediatric trauma, as well as novel strategies aimed at its prevention. With the aim of stimulating new learning, it will publish recent and original research, review articles, and relevant case reports on pediatric trauma, with the participation of a diverse and experienced audience, including practicing researchers, academics, PhD students, clinicians, surgeons, psychologists, government representatives, and other expert scientists in the field.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Jasna Bozic

As an Author Service Manager, my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
