Pediatric Emergency Medicine provides concise but comprehensive information on the diagnosis, investigation and management of a range of conditions presenting themselves to both accident and emergency departments and paediatricians. Particular attention is paid, through evidence-based material, to the most serious and frequently occurring conditions. The book incorporates the most recent advances in paediatrics and is internationally acceptable in terms of the guidelines for treatment as it is written by consultants from USA, Australia and the UK. The book also considers both the individual needs of the child as a patient and the needs of the family.
