Each chapter reviews diagnosis, treatment, and patient disposition, and lists key points to reinforce important information. The section on diagnostic categories covers a wide range of disorders of each organ system, as well as infectious diseases and neurological and psychological disorders.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: M. Denise Dowd, MD (University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Medicine)
Description: This portable reference manual summarizes the diagnosis and management of the most common, and many uncommon, pediatric emergencies.
Purpose: The goal of this edition is to consolidate and distill the vast changes in pediatric emergency medicine since the publication of the previous edition in 1996. New sections on conscious sedation, assessment and management of pain, agitated patients, and streptococcal diseases have been added. Extensively revised chapters on life support, newborn resuscitation, toxicology, burns, drowning, and child maltreatment are included.
Audience: This is a useful handbook for non-pediatricians who encounter childhood emergencies, such as physicians in family practice or general emergency medicine. Pediatricians will also find it a handy tool for quick decision making.
Features: This book is organized by diagnostic category and each chapter follows a well-organized format including sections on diagnosis, management, disposition, and key points. Separate in-depth sections on resuscitation, cardiac and pulmonary emergencies, and trauma are included. Appendixes are practical and provide normal lab values, drug dosage guidelines, and tetanus prophylaxis recommendations. A handy, quick reference resuscitation guide is provided inside the front and back covers.
Assessment: This is a comprehensive review of the vast majority of pediatric emergencies. Descriptions of diagnosis and management are succinct as well as substantial. This book provides a practical and welcome tool for those whose practice occasionally or frequently includes the treatment of pediatric emergencies.
