Now in its Sixth Edition, the best-selling Textbook of Pediatric Emergency Medicine is the most comprehensive textbook in this specialty. The editors are considered the founders of pediatric emergency medicine, and this text covers all pediatric emergencies and acute illnesses. All critical emergency information, including shock, resuscitation, and life-threatening conditions, are placed in the front of the book. More than 70 acute pediatric presentations are covered in a signs and symptoms section designed with side tabs for easy access.
This edition's highlights include new chapters on palpitations, cystic fibrosis, travel related emergencies, and ultrasound and a new appendix on practice pathways. The medical, surgical, and trauma sections present topics in alphabetical order for easier access. The contributors have revised and updated every chapter and included contemporary references.
A companion website will offer the fully searchable text, plus online access to interactive practice pathways and journal articles from Pediatric Emergency Care.
