Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The authors, an international panel of experts, have here created an easy reference on how to treat emergencies in children. Handbook of Pediatric Emergency Medicine provides concise but comprehensive information on the diagnosis, investigation and management of a range of conditions presenting to both accident and emergency departments and pediatricians. Particular attention is paid, through evidence-based material, to the most serious and frequently occurring conditions, such as head injuries, burns, animal bites, shock, trauma and child abuse. The book incorporates the most recent advances in pediatrics and considers both the individual needs of the child as a patient and the needs of the family. Emergency physicians and pediatricians will both find this handbook indispensable.
