Editorial Reviews

John Graneto
Each chapter or section of this multiauthored book covers a very specific clinical situation. This is a second edition, the first being published in 1992. The authors state the revisions primarily affect the resuscitation and trauma sections. "The purpose is to provide a quick reference for nonpediatric housestaff working in an emergency department. The purpose is to place an emphasis on management and referral decision making. "The book is written at a basic level suitable for nonpediatric housestaff. The book would not meet the needs of more senior housestaff. It also is intended for use by casualtynurses. One of the coauthors is an emergency physician and the other, a pediatrician. "There are only a few algorithms regarding decision making, which are adequate. There are many instances where more diagrams could be helpful, e.g., for intraosseous insertion technique. There are no references listed, but a few sections refer the reader to relevant literature. "This book is superficial and somewhat limited in its content. The most useful section is the symptom chart related to the toxidromes. Also helpful is the section on dealing with pediatric deaths in the emergency department. The use of the British English is distracting because some words are not easily recognized in the U.S.: nappy rash for diaper rash, attendees for patients, and funny turns for syncopal-like episodes. There are much better pediatric emergency references available for housestaff.
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: John Graneto, DO, MEd (Lutheran General Hospital)
Description: Each chapter or section of this multiauthored book covers a very specific clinical situation. This is a second edition, the first being published in 1992. The authors state the revisions primarily affect the resuscitation and trauma sections.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a quick reference for nonpediatric housestaff working in an emergency department. The purpose is to place an emphasis on management and referral decision making.
Audience: The book is written at a basic level suitable for nonpediatric housestaff. The book would not meet the needs of more senior housestaff. It also is intended for use by "casualty"nurses. One of the coauthors is an emergency physician and the other, a pediatrician.
Features: There are only a few algorithms regarding decision making, which are adequate. There are many instances where more diagrams could be helpful, e.g., for intraosseous insertion technique. There are no references listed, but a few sections refer the reader to relevant literature.
Assessment: This book is superficial and somewhat limited in its content. The most useful section is the symptom chart related to the toxidromes. Also helpful is the section on dealing with pediatric deaths in the emergency department. The use of the British English is distracting because some words are not easily recognized in the U.S.: "nappy rash" for diaper rash, "attendees" for patients, and "funny turns" for syncopal-like episodes. There are much better pediatric emergency references available for housestaff.
