Overview

Now in its revised, updated Second Edition, this best-selling reference is designed for quick consultation on problems seen in infants, children, and adolescents. More than 500 problems are covered in the fast-access two-page outline format that makes the 5 Minute Consult volumes so popular among busy clinicians. The book is organized into five sections--chief complaints, diseases, syndromes, physical findings, and tables. One-third of the topics are new or significantly rewritten. Over 100 tables, many of them new to this edition, provide quick access to developmental milestones, lab values, differential diagnoses, and many other important topics.

FEATURES:

  • Famous two-page layout provides an instant overview on more than 425 medical/surgical problems.
  • Topics are arranged alphabetically, so you can turn to peerless commentary on basics, diagnosis, treatment, medications, follow-up, and miscellaneous considerations.

    NEW TO THIS EDITION:

    • One-third of the topics are new or significantly rewritten
    • New sections include: cardiology laboratory surgical glossaries, laboratory values, and herbal treatments
    • Lots of new tables provide quick access to developmental milestones, lab values, differential diagnoses, and more.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Benjamin Danielson
Providing acute pediatric care is an extremely demanding endeavor. Practitioners contend with a wide range of ages and long differential diagnoses, and time is at a premium. In this clinical setting this text is extremely useful because it is an easy to use, surprisingly comprehensive resource. The editors are very effective in fulfilling the goal of providing a useful, thorough, yet quick pediatric reference. The target audience includes nurses, medical students, residents, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and physicians who provide acute clinical care to a pediatric population. This second edition is an enhancement of the comprehensive nature of the easy-to-use first edition. Two-page (or less) compilations of medical information organized by symptoms as well as specific diagnoses are presented. Important features of history and physical examination are included. A few important symptoms are not included (e.g., dizziness or vertigo), lab work up recommendations are not always appropriately prioritized, a few treatment recommendations seem outdated (e.g., antibiotic management of otitis media or theophylline for bronchiolitis), and a few typographical errors exist (e.g., rather importantly, a ""<10%"" that should be "">10%"" on page 327). Still, over all this is an extremely useful tool enhanced by special, unique features like ""pitfalls,"" ""Common Questions and Answers,"" and relevant ICD-9 codes. I find this book to be uniquely useful in the setting of a busy pediatric acute care practice.

Intended to provide a source for easy and quick retrieval of information about children's diseases and problems, this volume is organized into several reference sections. The first provides brief descriptions of children's primary complaints, such as bruising, earaches, and speech delay, and the second examines specific diseases including congestive heart failure, hypertension, and roseola. Schwartz (pediatrics, U. of Pennsylvania School of Medicine) is joined by nearly 200 pediatrics specialists in writing the thousands of entries, each providing a definition, differential diagnosis, history taking procedures, how to do the medical examination, lab aids, and answers to commonly asked questions. The volume also includes hundreds of tables, and a section on herbal treatments currently in practice. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
