Overview

This handy, pocket-sized manual is the perfect field companion!It provides quick, easy access to guidelines and protocols for the health supervision of children in ambulatory settings. Clear and concise — and with an emphasis on health education and prevention of illness — the book is divided into three organized units. Part I - Well Child Care: Is organized by age-span and includes specific factors to be investigated; areas to be assessed; age-appropriate information for anticipatory guidance in the physical, emotional, intellectual, and social aspects of development; and child-rearing issues. Part II - Common Pediatric Health Problems: Provides succinct protocols of management for 67 of the most common pediatric health problems, and includes etiology, incidence, communicability, differential diagnosis, management and nursing care, and in-depth family teaching. Current topics like AIDS, anorexia and bulimia are also covered. Part III - Drug Index: Current guidance for 68 commonly used drugs, organized in outline format. Administration, timing, side effects, complications, and re-ordering are discussed for each drug. In this edition: Injury Prevention Guidelines for Every Age Group; New Guidelines for Pertussis, Poison Ivy/Poison Oak Dermatitis, and Sinusitis; 11 New Drugs; New Pediatric Immunization Schedule.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Ingrid P. Pearson
This fourth edition continues to provide guidelines in the management of well child care and the management of common pediatric health programs. Previous editions of this book were published in 1994, 1988, and 1982. This book continues to serve as a concise reference for education and practice relative to well-child standards of care, a compilation of common acute illnesses with protocols for diagnosis and management, as well as a drug reference for many commonly used drugs. The book is directed to pediatric primary care providers. It is intended for primary care providers with experience and knowledge in pediatrics and the delivery of well child care, as well as episodic acute care. The overall format is an outline, and is primarily directed to the care of intact families. It does not address the single parent family or issues faced by parents with socioeconomic problems that may have a significant impact on child care. The table of contents is adequate and well organized; however, the appendixes contain significant data and should have been listed individually rather than just as appendixes. This book is a fine reference for pediatric practitioners in practice. The new edition has added three new chapters: injury prevention guidelines; child abuse guidelines; and a section on child abuse. Additional drugs have been added as well as new protocols for management of sinusitis, pertussis, poison ivy/poison oak, and sinusitis. The section on adolescent assessment and care is lacking in content about assessing the adolescent for social, emotional, and environmental issues such as violence and then dealing with these issues when raised. The section on management of common pediatricproblems is well written and easy to follow. The drug section is a valuable quick reference for common drug therapies. The appendixes contain very useful information. This edition would be a valuable addition to individual libraries of students, ambulatory care nurses, and pediatric care providers.
