Rehearse for life in clinical practice with this easy-to-use and unique series, which combines cases drawn from real-life experiences with a refreshing approach to presentations as you would see them in day-to-day situations.

Get the most from clinical practice, with Clinical Cases Uncovered

Guiding you through paediatrics, Clinical Cases Uncovered presents real-life problems which you can work through and improve on time and again. Each case looks at a different child, from premature infant to teenager, with acute or long-term problems. Presentations reflect common primary care and hospital-based practice and will give you a detailed insight into how children with a wide variety of problems can be assessed and managed.

The first section covers essential paediatric basics, then looks at common disorders and useful pointers. There is a section on practical assessment of children, helping you adapt your skills for the age of the child and the presenting problem. The helpful self-assessment section then lets you test all you have learnt and makes for great revision.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I have purchased three of your books: Paediatics, Obstetrics & Gynaecology, and Haematology. I have found the story-telling style and the level of detail contained in the cases to be balanced nicely so that it retains a realism that other case books lack and that reader remains engaged in the outcome of the investigations and the end-point of the case. All in all, these series make for interesting and entertaining reads which ultimately renders them an excellent learning tool.” - Medical Student,Trinity College Dublin

"I would be very happy if my medical studetns read this book before an attachment! I think this format is encourages the students to think clearly about real patients and not just learn facts in isolation." - Honorary Leturer, University of Leeds

"This book covers a very wide range of material, from neonatal medicine in the sick preterm infant to the teenager who has taken an averdose. It contains a large number of cases which are all relevent to medical student learning...each case study gives details of relevent questions to ask in the history, examination findings and management excellent resource for final exam revision." - MSc Student, University of Liverpool Medical School

"Fantastic. Very impressed and very easy to read...relevent cases and good layout." - Final Year Student, Warwick Medical School
