Overview

Practical, up-to-date, well-referenced coverage of the care of children from birth through adolescence—in an easy-to-use, find-it-now presentation

A Doody's Core Title ESSENTIAL PURCHASE for 2011!

5 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!

"Overall, this is a well-organized, relatively thorough resource that provides a wealth of information for a wide range of practitioners. The updated and new chapters, as well as the large number of website references, are valuable additions which will extend the useful lifespan of this book compared to standard print resources. The online references/resources allow users to obtain real-time, current information, and enable this book to compete favorably with such online resources as UpToDate, which requires a separate fee."—Doody's Review Service

Celebrating its 20th anniversary as THE practical guide to treating children of all ages, CURRENT Diagnosis & Treatment Pediatrics is written by experienced pediatricians to ensure that every chapter reflects the needs and realities of day-to-day practice.

Its comprehensive yet succinct coverage encompasses the full spectrum of pediatric conditions from immunization and diabetes mellitus to allergic disorders.

It remains the essential guide for pediatricians, family practitioners, nurses and nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and all other health-care providers who work with infants, children, and adolescents

  • Time-saving and proven-effective LANGE CURRENT outline format: Problem, Essentials of Diagnosis & Typical Features, Clinical Findings, Differential Diagnosis, Treatment, Prognosis
  • Organization by general topics as well as by organ systems
  • A handy guide to normal laboratory values
  • Concise overviews of important pediatric health concerns, including childhood nutrition and eating disorders, substance abuse, psychiatric disorders, child abuse, oral medicine and dentistry, immunization, and emergencies and injuries

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: James Hanley, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This is a relatively complete reference for general pediatrics that has undergone significant updating since the 2009 edition. It provides both a guide to key points and current, pertinent references to additional information beyond the overview provided in each section. A CD-ROM supplies additional figures, not available in the print version, to support such areas as orthopedics, dermatology, and child abuse/neglect. A new chapter on travel medicine is a useful addition to address a growing and generally unclear aspect of pediatric care.
Purpose: The stated purpose is to provide practical, up-to-date, well-referenced information on the care of children from birth through adolescence. The book is intended to offer a clear, concise guide to a wide range of basic, typical pediatric and adolescent issues while also addressing many less common but important disorders. It meets the ever-changing needs in pediatrics by offering both pertinent, current information and access to online resources with more recent updates.
Audience: By offering both an overview of the underlying principles and the clinical aspects of pediatric care, this book serves as a useful resource for the entire spectrum of pediatric providers including medical students, residents, allied health providers, physician extenders, practicing physicians, and subspecialists. It is a particularly useful resource for individuals who do not routinely provide pediatric care but fill this need on an as needed basis.
Features: The initial portion of the book discusses normal growth, development, and routine health maintenance in each major age grouping: newborn, child, and adolescent. Common issues and concerns that would be dealt with in an ambulatory/office practice including immunizations, nutrition, child abuse/neglect, and various psychosocial/psychiatric concerns for that particular age group are covered in each section. The next major grouping addresses various emergent concerns such as the serious ill or injured patient, poisoning, critical care and fluid/electrolytes. Many of the remaining chapters offer an overview of specific disorders organized in an organ system approach. The final chapters cover other significant areas in pediatric/adolescent care such as sports medicine, pain management/palliative care, travel medicine, and hematology and chemistry reference values. This final chapter covering laboratory values is particularly useful as it provides not only numerical values, but also a concise explanation of how the reference laboratory calculates specific normal ranges and why these reference intervals vary among labs. The CD-ROM offers additional photos and tables in addition to those available in the print version, but requires computer access, thus limiting its utility in more austere settings.
Assessment: Overall, this is a well-organized, relatively thorough resource that provides a wealth of information for a wide range of practitioners. The updated and new chapters, as well as the large number of website references, are valuable additions which will extend the useful lifespan of this book compared to standard print resources. The online references/resources allow users to obtain real-time, current information, and enable this book to compete favorably with such online resources as UpToDate, which requires a separate fee.
