Overview

Practical, handy and succinct, this full colour pocketbook provides clear-cut clinical guidance to the main symptoms that infants and children commonly present with in both primary and secondary care.

Clearly divided into specific sections covering the GI tract, liver and nutrition, Professor Kelly and her team discuss how best to investigate and manage specific clinical problems such as vomiting, abdominal pain, acute diarrhoea, constipation and jaundice using a highly clinical problem-orientated approach. 

They cover the management of important clinical problems such as chronic liver disease, ascites, malnutrition, obesity, coeliac disease and inflammatory bowel disease, and provide advice on nutritional problems in premature infants and children including weaning and food aversion.

Key points, potential pitfalls, and management algorithms allow for rapid-reference, and link with the latest evidence, guidelines and protocols from ESPGHAN and NASPGHAN providing coverage of the major professional society recommendations for clinical practice.

 Brought to you by the experts, Practical Approach to Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition is the perfect accompaniment for trainees in gastroenterology, hepatology and pediatrics, as well as nutritionists, GI nurses and GPs.
