Overview

This book covers the most common paediatric problems encountered in the Accident and Emergency Department. The contents include cardiopulmonary resuscitation, major trauma, minor trauma, fractures and other orthopaedic problems, burns, scalds, and poisoning. Child abuse and its recognition and management are described. Emphasis has been placed on the emergency management of serious illness and injury and on the management of common problems. In many instances, further management is described both for readers studying for the Accident and Emergency fellowship examination and also in cases where specialist help is unavailable. This edition includes a revised section on paediatric resuscitation which summarizes the latest guidelines in this area. The section on major trauma has been extended to follow the Advanced Paediatric Life Support guidelines, and the information on fractures has been altered into tabular form to allow for ease of use and comparison between possible diagnoses.
