Overview

Featuring over 400 full-color photographs, this atlas is a visual guide to the diagnosis and management of pediatric emergencies and acute conditions.

Photographs showing specific emergencies comprise the bulk of each chapter and are accompanied by discussions of patient presentation, diagnostic studies, and management.
