Sleep and anesthesia seem so similar that the task of analyzing the neurological similarities and differences between the two is an obvious research postulate. Both involve the loss of consciousness, or the loss of awareness of external stimuli. Yet when we investigate further, key differences start to manifest themselves—anesthesia is drug-induced while sleep requires no external cause being only the most salient. Other fascinating questions crowd in too: do we dream while under anesthesia, and do we feel pain while sleeping? Examining neural activity associated with sleep and anesthesia can be effected at various levels, from the microscopic, single-neuron level right up to that of whole neural populations.This book starts appropriately in considering the principles which should govern our care of the injured child and the background factors which influence fracture epidemiology. Knowing how to manage the multiply injured child and recognizing the one who has been non-accidentally injured are essential skills in our specialty. Injuries to the growth plate are not always easy to recognize and manage but, if we fail to do so, the long-term consequences may be serious. Succeeding chapters describe childhood injuries and fractures regionally. Conservative fracture management has not been forgotten amidst the plethora of newer methods of surgical fixation.
