Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Rebecca A Pifer, M.D.(University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: This is the fourth edition of a pocket-sized pediatric emergency medicine reference guide originally published in 1995 with subsequent publications in 1997 and 1999. This book is part of a well known series that includes the Tarascon Pocket Pharmacopoeia.
Purpose: The editors compile data and statistics pertinent to the practice of pediatric emergency medicine. The data is evidence-based and supported by multiple references to a variety of medical journals. In addition, there are important Web sites and contact phone numbers given throughout the book that make it an even more valuable commodity. The information is well organized in a user-friendly fashion. The goals of this book are met and the book is a "must have" for any emergency medicine physician caring for a pediatric population.
Audience: Dr. Rothrick and his fellow editors are all emergency medicine or affiliated pediatric practitioners with the exception of one pharmacist. They have provided a useful reference for any students, residents, or practitioners seeing a pediatric population in any emergency room.
Features: This is a succinct, easy to use, pocket-sized book. It is alphabetically organized and covers important facets of pediatric emergency medicine ranging from "abuse" to "urology." Any practitioner can use the book's excellent index or just refer to the top of each individual page to find the desired section. Though each section is only a few pages, each page is packed with vital facts such as clinical statistics, key treatments, important components of various workups and admission criteria. There are multiple articles and books referenced for the practitioner who wants to find more detailed information quickly. Exceptionally helpful sections include cardiology, fluids and electrolytes, exposures, and environmental. For example, in the cardiology section, there is a table that breaks down the most common congenital defects diagnosed and at what age they present. The environmental section includes Web sites and numbers to call for various antivenins for everything from snakebites to marine exposures. The infectious disease section is like a mini-Sanford for the pediatric patient.
Assessment: This book is chock-full of valuable facts and figures and is a must-have for any pediatric emergency medicine doctor. It is beautifully organized, concise and based on well-referenced, reliable sources. In addition, it is devoid of the typographical errors one might expect with this type of book. It deserves a place in the pocket of all pediatric emergency medicine doctors. Because it relies on facts and statistics that change with time and research, it follows that new editions must be compiled periodically. This is the 4th edition and reflects the most recent data and research.
