In addition, we reached out to other AAP members for their expertise on specific content areas. A special thank you to Mary Landrigan- Ossar, MD, FAAP, for her assistance with the anesthesia chapter and Suzanne Berman, MD, FAAP, for her assis- tance with the coding continuum. This project would not have been completed were it not for the outstanding work of AAP staff. In Membership, Marketing, and Publishing, Barrett Winston, senior manager, publishing acquisitions and business development Mary Kelly, senior editor, professional/clinical publishing Jason Crase, manager, editorial services Peg Mulcahy, manager, art direction and production Leesa Levin-Doroba, production manager, practice manage- ment and Mary Jo Reynolds, marketing manager, practice publications, deserve special recognition for their outstanding skill and dedication to this project. At the AAP, I am especially appreciative of the support and pro- fessional expertise of Linda Walsh, MAB, director, and AAP staff support to the AAP COCN, dedicated advocates for all of us who provide medical care to children. A special thank-you to our AAP Board of Directors reviewer, Richard Tuck, MD, FAAP. Dr Tuck is a former COCN member and is an expert on this topic. We are so grateful to have his leadership and review for this manual! Finally, we all would like to give a big thank-you to all our readers, billers, coders, medical team, and dedi- cated pediatric providers who work tirelessly around the clock to provide the best care to all children. Your work inspires us to work very hard behind the scenes to provide you the latest and most accurate coding information. By all of us working together, we can accomplish the highest standards of care for our future. Linda D. Parsi, MD, MBA, CPEDC, FAAP Editor
