Overview

This handbook presents step-by-step protocols for telephone advice for more than 150 symptoms and complaints of pediatric patients. Written in algorithmic format, the protocols list questions the health care provider should ask the caller to reach a diagnosis and decide if the illness is best managed in the home, the office, or an emergency facility. Where appropriate, the authors provide detailed home care instructions for parents and alert parents to complications that would require a call back.

The Second Edition features a new chapter on symptomatic therapy using home remedies and over-the-counter medications. This chapter includes instructions for administering medications to infants and children. Also new to this edition is a chapter on adolescent health problems. Most of the protocols in this edition include a new "Additional Information" section, which concisely explains the pathogenesis, natural history, evaluation, and management of the disease.
