A clinically-focused guide to evaluating and treating pediatric complaints most often encountered in an emergency setting

A Doody's Core Title for 2011!

"...a comprehensive and current resource for anyone who cares for children in an acute setting, from the office to the emergency department. Its presentation is straightforward, and the information is easy to read and assimilate. It will be a valuable resource for those in the field of pediatric emergency medicine as well as other practitioners who occasionally care for sick children."--JAMA

"Many photographs, diagrams, flow charts, and tables enhance the delivery of information. The book also provides enough background information and rationale for treatment approaches to satisfy most users....I would highly recommend this book for anyone looking for a pediatric emergency textbook. 3 Stars."--Doody's Review Service

Endorsed by the American College of Emergency Physicians and written by a renowned team of pediatric emergency physicians, this well-illustrated practical reference delivers an unmatched review of pediatric emergency medicine. It spans the full scope of pediatric emergencies -- from trauma care to psychosocial emergencies -- in all the detail you need, yet still maintains a concise, find-it-now presentation ideal for use in the emergency department or pediatric clinic.


  • Full-color presentation complete with 1000 illustrations
  • Section on cardinal presentations in the pediatric emergency department that distinguishes the clinical approach to neonates from that for infants and children, and accounts for the advent of modern immunization practices
  • Organized by body system
  • Over 100 diagnostic and treatment algorithms offer streamlined, at-a-glance summaries of critical actions
  • Expanded content on the management of neonates in chapters which cover feeding problems, jaundice, and common neonatal presentations
  • Revised infectious disease section includes discussions of pivotal topics such as influenza, imported diseases, bioterrorism, and HIV
  • Enhanced endocrine/metabolic section with new chapters on rickets and inborn errors of metabolism

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Roxanne Thompson, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This is an update of a basic textbook of pediatric emergency care last published in 2003.
Purpose: It is intended as a resource for clinicians who regularly provide emergency care to children, as well as those who only occasionally do so, a worthy objective.
Audience: Emergency medicine practitioners and pediatric emergency medicine staff and trainees are the intended audience.
Features: Chapters are organized by body and system, with additional chapters on cardinal presentations (such as fever, crying), SIDS, resuscitation, trauma, pain, imaging, etc. Many photographs, diagrams, flow charts, and tables enhance the delivery of information. The book also provides enough background information and rationale for treatment approaches to satisfy most users.
Assessment: This is a rapidly changing field and replacing the previous edition is justified. I would highly recommend this book for anyone looking for a pediatric emergency textbook.
