While there are many general paediatrics textbooks and an even larger number of monographs on specific childhood diseases, there has been no practical guide to the immediate management of paediatric emergencies. This book is designed to provide the busy junior doctor--at the front door of the hospital--with enough information to make instant decisions and carry out essential procedures required for stabilisation, before the child is transferred to a specialist or a ward. Most important, Acute Paediatrics is based on the agreed neonatal and paediatric emergency protocols from Europe's largest children's hospital, Alder Hey in Liverpool. As such, it contains the distilled wisdom of a great many paediatricians and neonatologists. Everything in this book serves to provide an instant (and pocket-sized) source of practical information when and where it is required. The material is written in clear and condensed form, accompanied by tables, lists, simple diagrams, flowcharts and action points, and is divided into two parts; Neonatal Emergencies and Paediatric Emergencies, each of which consists of three subsections: Presentations (signs and symptoms), Conditions (diagnoses) and Skills (specific procedures and techniques).

From the Back Cover:

Whilst there are many textbooks of general paediatrics and an even larger number of monographs on specific diseases of childhood, there are no practical guides to the immediate management of paediatric emergencies. This book is designed to provide the busy junior doctor at the front door of the hospital with enough information to make those instant decisions and carry out any essential procedures required in order to stabilise the patient before handing over either to the care of a ward or a specialist. Everything about the book serves this one aim of providing an instant source of practical information when and where it is required. The size of the book means it will fit in a white coat pocket and it has a durable plastic cover. The contents have been written in clear and condensed form consisting very often of tables, lists, simple diagrams, flow charts and action points all of which help to guide the reader straight to the information required. Most importantly Acute Paediatrics has been based on the agreed neonatal and paediatric emergency protocols from Europe's largest children's hospital - Alder Hey in Liverpool. As such it contains the distilled wisdom of a great many paediatricians and neonatologists with an enormous combined clinical workload written in the form of detailed action plans which are known to work in practice. It is divided into two parts; Neonatal Emergencies and Paediatric Emergencies, each of which consists three subsections: Presentations (signs and symptoms), Conditions (diagnoses) and Skills (specific procedures and techniques)
