Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Thomas Young, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: With its emphasis on diagnostic and therapeutic algorithms, this concise guide to the diagnosis and treatment of pediatric patients is meant to be a quick reference for medical students and house staff.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide medical students and house staff caring for children with an easily accessible, concise diagnostic and therapeutic handbook. Although these are worthy goals, much of this information is already available in such standards as The Harriet Lane Handbook, 18th edition, Custer and Rau (Elsevier, 2009).
Audience: It is targeted at medical students and residents caring for pediatric patients.
Features: This book covers all subspecialties of pediatrics as well as newborn care. Outpatient general pediatrics is not well covered. This book does a superb job as a quick reference when caring for the inpatient or emergency room patient. The section on ICU care is very effective at simplifying the approach to the acutely ill child.
Assessment: This is a good book with excellent algorithms. Some of the chapters are not well written (cardiology), which may lead to confusion when read by junior trainees. Overall, however, it serves as a good immediate reference but should not be used for in-depth study. The Harriet Lane Handbook accomplishes the same goals (with a more complete pharmacology section).
