Editorial Reviews

Doody Reviews
Reviewer: Simone Fogarasi, MD (Ochsner for Children)
Description: This book in the Patient Encounters series was developed to provide a concise review of the most important inpatient pediatric patient problems for third-year medical students. Each chapter features a common inpatient pediatric disease or disorder. For each topic, the authors describe a patient scenario, an overview, acute management and workup, extended in-hospital management, disposition, suggested readings, and clinical pearls. Many excellent tables, drawings, and photographs help readers comprehend these topics.
Purpose: The authors specifically designed this book to help students learn the essentials of inpatient pediatrics in a concise and organized fashion. There are many books designed to teach third-year students. The authors of this book not only want to impart a set of core knowledge, but they also want to teach an approach to clinical medicine, thus demonstrating to these students how to become good doctors. The authors' goal of creating a concise review of patient assessment and management for pediatric inpatient care is a worthy one and they have accomplished their objectives nicely.
Audience: While the authors have designed this book for medical students who are making the transition from the classroom to the hospital, it is so well written and organized that residents and nurse practitioners would benefit as well.
Features: The 44 chapters highlight common pediatric medical and surgical problems from A to Z, including acute renal failure, diabetic ketoacidosis, febrile neutropenia, intussusception, nonaccidental trauma, osteomyelitis, status asthmaticus, and ventricular shunt infections and malfunction. Each chapter opens with a patient encounter or a clinical scenario that introduces the topic, followed by a definition, pathophysiology, epidemiology, etiology, and differential diagnosis of the disease process. After this overview, a discussion of the acute management and workup illustrates what to do in the first 15 minutes and what to do in the first few hours. The chapters highlight specific details in the history and physical, important diagnostic labs, tests, and imaging to consider. Treatment and extended in-hospital care plans are also discussed. Each chapter concludes with discharge goals, outpatient care, suggested readings, and clinical pearls.
Assessment: This is an excellent resource for third-year medical students, pediatric residents, and nurse practitioners. It is a very well-organized, complete, and practical approach to the most common inpatient pediatric presentations. Its focus is on teaching the approach to the patient, not merely points to remember for a multiple-choice test. The authors have done a lovely job with this book and medical students will benefit as a result.
