A comprehensive physical examination, along with a detailed history, is the cornerstone of effective pediatric patient care.

Dr. Barness details the characteristics and techniques of a complete physical examination in a child and explains how to interpret the significance of physical findings.Chapters cover the approach to the patient, the examination of each organ system, the neurologic examination, and the examination of the newborn. Emphasis is on recognizing the many variations among normal children and determining normality, variations from normal, and abnormal states. The user-friendly format features numerous lists and tables of differential diagnoses.
