Overview

Featuring over 400 full-color photographs, this atlas is a visual guide to the diagnosis and management of pediatric emergencies and acute conditions. It’s an indispensable reference in the emergency department, or in the pediatric clinic where rapid diagnosis depends on accurate physical observations.

Sections organized by body region/system cover acute medical problems, medical and surgical emergencies, and trauma, including child abuse. Each chapter begins with a brief overview of the type of emergency, presenting signs and symptoms, and differential diagnosis. Photographs showing specific emergencies comprise the bulk of each chapter and are accompanied by discussions of patient presentation, diagnostic studies, and management.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Jagvir Singh, M.D.(Lutheran General Hospital)
Description: This atlas is a visual guide that addresses the full range of pediatric medical and surgical emergencies using color illustrations and black-and-white pictures.
Purpose: The purpose is to present a quick visual review for common pediatric emergencies in an atlas format. This book does meet the author's objectives of providing various images for visual cues in making quick diagnoses of pediatric diseases and injuries, as well as providing quality information on differential diagnoses of various pediatric emergencies.
Audience: The book is primarily written for medical personnel who care for acutely injured or ill children and adolescents, but it is not limited to emergency personnel. It can be used by primary care physicians including pediatricians and family practitioners as well as nurse practitioners, fellows, residents, and medical students.
Features: The book has been divided into four major sections covering medical and surgical emergencies, trauma, psychosocial emergencies, and procedures, and is organized by body systems or region. This book describes common pediatric emergencies and their differential diagnoses in a succinct manner with helpful algorithms. A plethora of colorful images gives the reader a fast reference for diagnosing and treating emergencies. Although I found most of the images to be very helpful, some of the black-and-white pictures are not as clear as they should be to identify the pathology. Also, some of the pictures are duplicated and one image was incorrect. Although the book's main purpose is to serve as an atlas, the discussion of some of the emergency procedures is shallow.
Assessment: The atlas is of an excellent quality and serves as a quick reference for images and differential diagnosis of various pediatric emergencies and injuries. The Atlas of Pediatric Physical Diagnosis, 4th edition, by Zitelli and Davis (Mosby, 2002), is more comprehensive for pediatric diseases, but this atlas has a more focused approach to emergency care.
