On Call Pediatrics provides you with practical, portable guidance on the pediatric problems that you're most likely to encounter while on call. It equips you with a systematic approach for determining the cause of a given problem, and then outlines the most appropriate treatments. Puts essential information at your fingertips! Introductory chapters provide the background necessary for sound, confident decision making, with coverage of basic evaluation and management...communication with colleagues, patients, and their families...intravenous access...and more. Extensive lists guide you quickly through differential diagnosis, and a section within each chapter draws your attention to life-threatening problems. An entire section addresses laboratory-related problems such as acidosis, alkalosis, electrolyte disorders, and hyperbilirubinemia. An appendix of commonly used medications concisely presents dosages, side effects, and interactions.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.
