Practical Paediatric Procedures is an invaluable multimedia tool for the pediatrician in training. Covering all core diagnostic and therapeutic procedures that the trainee would be expected to know how to do, each procedure is introduced in the book, describing the scientific background, clinical applications and associated problems. Their place in clinical investigation and management is illustrated by clinical examples. Problems are highlighted, particularly in relation to the interpretation of investigative procedures. Useful lists of further reading are provided. Each procedure is uniquely illustrated on the accompanying DVD using a variety of techniques including video clips, animated diagrams and figures, and enhanced by text and commentary. The book and DVD are thoroughly integrated to provide the reader with a complete package to enhance their understanding and ability to practice all the core procedures. An excellent complement to the trainee's standard paediatrics textbook, Practical Paediatric Procedures meets the criteria of the RCPCH's Framework of Competencies for Basic Specialist Training in Paediatrics. It will be an invaluable training aid for paediatrician at House Officer, Specialist Registrar or Fellow level, as well as for trainee or newly qualified paediatric nurses. The multi media format is also useful and accessible to medical and nursing students and to senior medical and nursing staff.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The procedures are presented in a clear and concise manner, offering the key information required and highlighting safety issues. The accompanying DVD is excellent and offers a reference video for nearly all the included procedures."
Paediatric Nursing

"This is a fantastic product as the combination of the detailed book with the DVD to explain techniques is an excellent idea. It's clear, concise and an excellent learning tool. I definitely recommend it to all paediatricians in training. The authors need to be congratulated on such an excellent product. I wish I had this product when I started my paediatrics rotation! It really is that good."
