Despite global advancements in pediatric medicine, technologies which  have become standard-of-care in high-resource settings are unavailable  in low-and middle-income countries due to cost, availability, or  challenges maintaining equipment. This book compiles evidence-based and  expert clinical procedural adaptations in an approachable, case-based,  step-by-step guide, aimed to provide educational support for healthcare  providers practicing in resource-limited settings. This responds to both  the high demand for this content and the importance of gathering  experts across continents and pediatric disciplines.

Each  chapter provides both a theoretical framework and practical discussion  of high-yield procedural adaptations. Leading international researchers  and seasoned clinicians with expertise using these adaptations were  selected by the editors as authors. Chapters include an example case  with adaptation use and detailed instructions including supplies,  indications, risks, and benefits. Content is grounded in current best  practice recommendations and evidence-based research.  

Highlighted  by the COVID-19 pandemic, a mature understanding of pathophysiology and  device design/safety is required when providing care in low-resource  settings or in crisis times. In-person instruction is not always  feasible. Written and virtual platforms remain critical in disseminating  high-yield, practical content. This book is not a substitute for  appropriate procedural training, though is easily modified to meet the  educational needs of diverse learner groups. It is a valuable resource  for appropriately trained practitioners practicing in accordance with  local guidelines.
Knowledge and fluency with pediatric procedural  adaptations is critical in efforts to reduce global inequities and  pediatric morbidity/mortality in low-resource settings.
