Emergencies in Paediatrics and Neonatology 2nd edition pdf
This Emergencies in Paediatrics and Neonatology 2nd edition book has been written for anyone who assesses and manages acutely unwell children.

Some children presenting will be seriously ill, but many will not. There is, therefore, a coding system of icons, indicating the likely severity and consequent urgency of treatment.
The Emergencies in Paediatrics and Neonatology 2nd edition book is symptom-based, as that is how children present. It covers resuscitation and immediate management in detail, to get you through those first nerve-racking minutes. Longer-term treatment is then discussed.For each condition, the critical features of the history are described, along with the cardinal signs to be elicited on examination. The judicious use of investigations is also covered (as well as what the results mean!). Frequent re-assessment is emphasized to detect any clinical deterioration. Potential complications are listed, along with what to do next and when to seek further specialist advice. Drug doses are included within the text.
Being an at-a-glance reference, the Emergencies in Paediatrics and Neonatology 2nd edition book is in the form of short notes and bullet points, with critical information highlighted. Flow diagrams guide you through the more complex areas. All are based on the best available evidence or accepted the best practice. Topics are grouped by body system, with a detailed index to provide easy access to information. Cross-references have been kept to a minimum to facilitate use at the bedside. Where a compound subject is mentioned, consultation of the more detailed Oxford Handbook of Paediatrics is recommended.
This Emergencies in Paediatrics and Neonatology 2nd edition pdf book is ideal for any health professional or student who has to treat unwell children.
