Completely updated for its Fifth Edition, the best-selling Textbook of Pediatric Emergency Medicine is the most comprehensive textbook you can buy in this specialty. No other text delivers more information on more aspects of pediatric emergency medicine, including resuscitation; more than 70 signs and symptoms; trauma; medical and surgical emergencies; psychosocial emergencies; neonatal and adolescent care; and an all-inclusive section on procedures. This edition includes new pediatric indications for drugs used in the emergency department and more information on ultrasound imaging.

Hundreds of illustrations and tables complement the text throughout. Algorithms for diagnosis and treatment are included in all the chapters on signs and symptoms as well as many others.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Journal of the American Medical Association
Although much material in this textbook is available in standard pediatric texts, there is a wealth of information that simply cannot be found elsewhere. Textbook of Pediatric Emergency Medicine would be a useful addition not just to any emergency department, but for any physician who cares for sick children.
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Ira J. Blumen, MD (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: In the third edition of this textbook, the two editors are joined by four associate editors and 117 contributors, representing pediatrics, emergency medicine, pediatric emergency medicine, and other appropriate specialties. A significant percentage of the contributors are from Pennsylvania and Massachusetts.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a book that will help a practitioner know what to do when faced with a pediatric clinical problem and to show the steps to perform pediatric procedures.
Audience: The primary target audience is specialists in pediatric emergency medicine. In addition, this is a very useful text for any physician who may treat pediatric emergencies on a routine or infrequent basis. It is appropriate for residents and fellows as well as practicing physicians.
Features: This well-organized textbook is supported by hundreds of high-quality black-and-white photos, ultrasounds, CT scans, line drawings, graphs, and charts. Unfortunately, the limited number of color photos (there are only 16 color pictures) detracts somewhat from the dermatology and rash chapters. Algorithms are used effectively to further illustrate many pediatric evaluation and treatment options. Near the end of the book is a 135-page section on illustrated techniques of pediatric emergencyprocedures that i s well written and illustrated. This is followed by a valuable four-part appendix that includes lists of pediatric resuscitation equipment for both the emergency department and the office or clinic; a comprehensive emergency drug compendium; parental instruction sheets; and a section of "practical information." Throughout the text contributors do not provide the usual footnotes or references for their chapters. Instead they furnish a list of worthwhile suggested readings that are divided by subjects found within the chapters.
Assessment: This comprehensive pediatric emergency medicine textbook would be a worthwhile addition to the medical library of any physician who treats pediatric emergencies. It is a useful reference that covers the many aspects of this specialty very well. Chapters are well written and contain comprehensive, detailed information.
