Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
From the authors of Smart Medicine for a Healthier Child (LJ 9/15/94) comes a quick reference guide for both immediate and follow-up care for common pediatric emergencies, from allergic reactions to unconsciousness. Part 1 offers home safety checklists and basic preparedness suggestions as well as an interesting chapter on understanding childhood trauma and its after-effects. Part 2 reviews step-by-step basic life-saving techniques such as CPR and the Heimlich maneuver for infants and children (for which the authors strongly recommend formal training). Part 3 covers emergency treatment, conventional medical therapy, and natural or homeopathic remedies to use after the initial emergency has been treated. Emergencies are listed alphabetically for ease of use. The line drawings and instructions are clear and succinct, and critical information is printed in bold type. A list of American and Canadian poison control center telephone numbers is included under the section on poisoning. Recommended for consumer health collections.Anne C. Tomlin, Auburn Memorial Hosp.
