Written by residents for residents, Pediatric Acute Care is designed to help you during initial patient stabilization and management.  It features abundant algorithms to guide you through both medical and surgical problems in the Emergency Department, on the wards, or in the PICU.  This useful guide helps you anticipate life-threatening complications and recognize when to call appropriate services or transfer to a tertiary care center.  The Handbook presents material in an outline format with helpful icons for easy reference, beginning with:

  • the ABCs of CPR
  • 60 Critical Conditions, organized by type of disorder
  • Procedures, offering specific how-to instruction

The editors complete the text by including useful appendixes that highlight the practical information you need to have handy, a list of suggested reading for further in-depth study, and a summary of common abbreviations.

A current and tested guide to patient management, The Pediatric Acute Care Handbook is an ideal pocket resource.
