Clinical Guide to Paediatrics enables rapid reference to common paediatric conditions presenting in acute settings to any professional working with children. Organised into systems-based sections, the guide focuses on important differential diagnoses based on presenting complaints, and addresses the key features of the history and physical examination within each diagnosis to guide necessary investigations and subsequent management principles.
Medical students, junior doctors, nurses and general practitioners would benefit from this clear, up-to-date evidence-based book, supported by numerous diagnostic algorithms, diagrams, tables and bullet points throughout. Succinct chapters are logically structured to allow easy access to important concepts.
Designed to complement the doctor-patient interaction in clinical practice, this valuable guide:
- Covers the most common presenting complaints encountered in acute paediatrics
- Provides evidence-based information on a wide variety of disorders, and issues faced in paediatric medicine to provide a unique, highly practical approach to the subject
- Includes access to a companion website containing images and clinical photos, audio podcasts, clinical case studies, and self-assessment exercises
