An essential pocket manual for anyone who treats children

"This is a unique and novel approach to a pediatric handbook. It is the first that I can remember that is written by house staff, although it is reviewed by attendings and is very thorough. 3 Stars."—Doody's Revivew Service

Featuring an instant-access, find-it-now presentation, Texas Children’s Hospital Handbook of Pediatrics and Neonatology delivers concise, evidence-based information that is directly applicable to bedside care of the patient in both pediatrics and neonatology.

Authored and reviewed by more than 125 residents, fellows, and faculty at Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston, Texas, this compact guide features content especially selected for its value to students, trainees, and junior faculty. Distinguished faculty in virtually every pediatric discipline have reviewed the content to ensure that the text reflects the most current clinical practice.


  • A true quick reference utilizing numerous tables, figures, and clinical algorithms

  • Key medications/dosages, research, and review articles are cited directly in the text
  • Includes PICU card—-a necessity for every lab coat pocket—-providing what-to-do information on sedation, poisoning, IV antibiotics, anaphylaxis, airway obstruction, intubation sequences, hypertensive crisis, and more
  • References to additional material available online at www.AccessPediatrics.com

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Matthew Cortez, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This pocket pediatric manual is meant to be a point of care reference tool.
Purpose: It is meant to be used by primary house staff at the pediatric bedside. As more content becomes available online and formatted for mobile devices, the number of quick-use pocket manuals in print seems to be declining, but this book definitely fills a need. The authors have done a good job of compiling information relevant to house staff caring for children.
Audience: Pediatric house staff and busy recent residency graduates in practice are the intended audience. The handbook is a good refresher for pediatric and neonatal knowledge.
Features: The format of numerous tables and bulleted listings makes it easy to find information quickly. The book is written primarily by house staff for house staff and includes a wealth of clinical pearls that residents working in the emergency department or at the bedside need.
Assessment: This is a unique and novel approach to a pediatric handbook. It is the first that I can remember that is written by house staff, although it is reviewed by attendings and is very thorough.
