Paediatrics at a Glance is a concise, well-illustrated and accessible guide to all aspects of paediatric medicine. Following the easy-to-use At a Glance format, each double page spread contains a diagram summarising the main differential diagnoses for each presenting symptom, with accompanying text which covers important conditions and management issues in more detail. For each symptom, details are given of the relevant history and examination findings to lookout for during the consultation.
The book is highly structured into nine different sections, which cover the full range of paediatrics. There are distinct sections on development, common symptoms, acute illness, emergencies, the newborn baby, chronic illness and disability. Separate chapters also address evaluating the child, child health surveillance, the child at school, community and family issues.
Written by first class paediatricians, who are practising clinicians as well as enthusiastic teachers, Paediatrics at a Glance fits the budget and reading time of medical students, pre-registration house officers or general practice trainees. It is ideal as primary or supplementary reading on a lecture-based course and is especially useful for exam preparation. If you are about to go on your paediatric attachment, this book is just what you need! Nursing students, physiotherapists and other health professionals wanting an insight into paediatrics as it is practised will also find this book invaluable.
