Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Dan L Lemkin, MD, BSBA (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: This book provides high yield, low fluff information on pediatric emergency medicine. Brief, well organized chapters can be browsed quickly and easily. A question/answer format encourages reader participation and provides instant feedback with limited but appropriate explanations.
Purpose: The authors offer this book as "an important reference for those on the front line" as well as "a useful study guide for students, residents and practicing clinicians." Although both references and study guides are essential to student and resident education, few books serve both goals well. This book is an excellent study guide and it offers relevant information in an easily absorbed format. Its brief chapters can be read in minutes, making it a great book to peruse at 3:00 am while waiting for the next patient to arrive. However, it falls short as a reference. The index refers the reader to specific questions under various chapter headings and whether the information is useful for a given circumstance is hit or miss.
Audience: The book is written for a broad audience, including emergency medicine practitioners, pediatricans, residents, and students. The format makes referencing topics difficult. It is designed to review major points, and will likely frustrate readers looking for a quick, specific answer. Practitioners likely will find established reference books more satisfying. Students and residents will benefit from this book as a study guide. This is part of a series of books that plainly state on the cover, "Questions you will be asked in the ED, in the clinic, on rounds..."
Features: This book offers a broad review of pediatric emergency management as well as primary care issues.The best feature of this book is the writing style. It is concise and can be easily digested while working in the ER, or while waiting for your attending to begin rounds.
Assessment: As written, this is a useful tool, fulfilling what it promises. It provides brief, limited, high yield information about many of the most common conditions you are likely to encounter in the practice of pediatric emergency medicine. If you have read other books in the Secrets series, you will not be disappointed.
Specialists in the field provide chapters on every aspect of the topic employing the urgent question and answer approach of these guides, such as, "How is a hyponatremic seizure managed?" or "Which children may be treated with oral rehydration?" The volume's main divisions cover advanced life support, chief complaints, medical emergencies, surgical emergencies, trauma, environmental emergencies and special topics<-->the latter includes transport medicine and chemical and biologic terrorism. The editors are pediatricians at both the Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia and the Alfred I duPont Hospital for Children in Wilmington, Delaware. Annotation c.

From the Publisher

β€œAn excellent book for all students and residents involved in the care of children. More experienced clinicians will also find it an excellent book to sit down and read at their leisure. There are some secrets here for even the most senior of emergency physicians...Strongly recommend.” – Pediatric Emergency Care
