Overview

Concise Paediatrics, Second Edition is essential reading for all postgraduates training in paediatrics, particularly when preparing for the MRCPCH exam, and for general practice trainees preparing for the DCH exam. As a comprehensive but concise reference to any condition they are likely to encounter on the wards or in the accident and emergency room, it will also be invaluable to doctors in other medical specialties who come into contact with children on a regular basis.

The book is designed to provide readers with a full understanding of all of the areas covered by the MRCPCH. It is structured logically by body system, with additional chapters on such topics as genetics, infectious disease, neonatology and emergencies.

Edited by two highly experienced paediatricians—their knowledge complemented by a group of specialist contributors—it is written in a succinct, user-friendly style and includes lists, boxes and annotated diagrams to aid learning and retention of the facts.

Since the first edition was published in 2000, Concise Paediatrics has established itself as the textbook of choice for MRCPCH candidates, and will remain a "must-have" with this revised and updated second edition.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Written in a succinct, user-friendly manner and covers the main components of the syllabus. As a revision guide this works very well... This book is well worth the investment and would definitely recommend it to colleagues preparing for their membership exams.
British Journal of Hospital Medicine, October 2009

5 Stars: Readable and concise - a valuable tool for exam preparation!
I like this book - it is easy to read, contains most key points for the exams and is not too heavy to carry around! There are other books which also cover similar material and perhaps have more photos/pictures, but I find that in particular, this book is good for getting information across quickly and in an organised manner. The topics are arranged in the format of exam revision headings, and within each topic, clear headings, subheadings and bullet points make memorising for exams so much less taxing! I would definitely recommend this useful tool as a textbook to read when preparing for stressful exams e.g. MRCPCH 1.

Amazon customer review of first edition

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Russell W Steele, M.D.(Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: The second edition of this very concise book is designed to be used in conjunction with a pediatric textbook or as a reference source for physicians who have a thorough knowledge of pediatric medicine. There is very little text; instead it consists almost entirely of tables, figures, boxes, and annotated diagrams, put together with no clear organization.
Purpose: The authors state that this book provides "a succinct, easy-to-access reference work, filling the gap between larger paediatric reference works and undergraduate books." It is supposed to particularly focus on the kind of information that appears on MRCPCH and DCH higher examinations. These are worthy objectives, but the format, with its lack of progression in the usual organized fashion, is unlikely to provide such an educational resource.
Audience: It is intended for physicians preparing for higher examinations in pediatrics, medical students, and as a quick reference for practitioners advanced in their training. However, its format might be more suitable for teachers who would likely find the tables, figures, and boxes useful for explaining pathophysiology and interpreting clinical data.
Features: All organ systems are covered, but incompletely. There are just 15 pages for all respiratory disorders, 35 pages devoted to infectious diseases, and 34 for renal disease, so obviously much is omitted. The book, by design, is concise to a fault. As an example, the chapter on cardiology (35 pages) begins with figures of the fetal circulation and cardiac cycle followed by tables and figures of heart sounds and then a figure and table of the jugular venous pulse. There is no text until seventh page and, then, as is true for the rest of the book, it is only one or two sentences. Many of the figures are inadequately explained.
Assessment: The unique nature of this book and its format make it difficult to assess its potential usefulness. All of the information is available in standard textbooks along with much more detail. What the book really offers is a snapshot of medical information which can be used to help one to remember or quiz oneself on the facts that are likely to be included on an exam. The index is excellent, so the reader can usually look up a disease or clinical entity and review the tables or figures available. This second edition has been updated and includes new chapters on ENT and ophthalmology.
