Overview

Like its parent textbook, this handbook focuses on the salient points of managing pediatric emergencies but uses an outline format to summarize the information you need to know. You'll review all conditions commonly seen in the ED, including: resuscitation conditions, including sudden infant death syndrome; trauma care; respiratory emergencies; cardiovascular emergencies; dermatologic emergencies, including infant rashes; toxicologic emergencies; pediatric and adolescent gynecology; and much more. Major points of etiology, pathophysiology, the patient exam are presented along with differential diagnosis and treatment of each condition. Each chapter is referenced to the comprehensive Pediatric Emergency Medicine for additional reading.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Steven M. Selbst, MD (Children's Hospital of Philadelphia)
Description: This new book includes contributions from numerous authors in a compact discussion of pediatric emergency medicine.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a resource for all physicians who care for sick and injured children. There is clearly a national need to improve the recognition and management of childhood emergencies, and this book largely meets its objective.
Audience: It is written for emergency physicians, pediatricians, family physicians, and primary care physicians. The book is detailed enough to benefit experienced clinicians and also practical enough to help those who see ill and injured children only infrequently. The authors are certainly authorities in the field. Although some of the contributors are less experienced (medical students, residents), even their chapters are well done. They offer reasonable approaches to common problems, such as management of the febrile infant.
Features: The sections on trauma and toxicology are especially well written. There are also some valuable chapters on the acute management of chronic disorders. The book has an appropriate number of tables and a few pertinent illustrations and radiographs. With few exceptions, the references are generally current and pertinent.
Assessment: This is a comprehensive book that can be a useful study guide for exams, as implied in its title, but it will also serve well those practitioners who are challenged by pediatric emergencies in daily practice.

Booknews
A clinical reference and review source for practitioners who regularly provide pediatric emergency care, and for pediatricians, emergency physicians, family physicians, and primary care providers who occasionally are called upon to care for a severely injured or ill child. The largest sections are trauma; toxicology; and environmental emergencies such as bites, near drowning, excessive heat or cold, and electric shock. Most of the others focus on a particular biological system. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
