9780721691312: Practical Strategies in Pediatric Diagnosis and Therapy, 2e

The revised and updated 2nd Edition of this highly acclaimed text approaches diagnosis and treatment the way clinicians do-by symptom rather than disease entity. It combines clinical experience and evidence-based strategies to guide clinicians through differential diagnoses and then to a specific diagnosis, then to appropriate therapy for common pediatric aliments. It's the next best thing to attending oral teaching rounds! A user-friendly, well-tabulated, and illustrated format assists the reader in identifying the many disease states causing a common chief complaint.

  • Offers step-by-step guidance on history taking and physical and laboratory studies...through diagnosis...to the most effective therapies.
  • Features an organization by symptom, signs, and chief complaints―the way problems present in real life.
  • Includes many helpful tables with lists of diagnoses, making this an invaluable reference on diseases.
  • Features algorithms to aid in diagnosis as well as tables comparing similar disease states to help the reader distinguish between similar disease entities.
  • Features new chapters on hypertension, acid base and electrolyte disturbances, renal failure, dysmorphology, and polyuria.
