APLS: The Pediatric Emergency Medicine Resource, Revised Fourth Edition offers the information necessary to assess and manage critically ill or injured children during the first hours in the emergency department. The Revised Fourth Edition of APLS is truly the body of knowledge in pediatric emergency medicine. If you want the newest, most comprehensive reference on pediatric emergency medicine, the Revised Fourth Edition will meet your needs. Developed by expert authors, editors, and faculty from both AAP and ACEP, the new APLS is a unique teaching and learning system for individual physicians, residents, students, and APLS instructors and course directors. The Fourth Edition of APLS has been revised and expanded to cover new conclusions drawn from reason, fact, and experience to the benefit of sick and injured children worldwide. Together, AAP and ACEP developed APLS into a new, stand-alone course, offering continuing medical education units and an APLS course completion card. The course is highly interactive with small group scenarios, hands-on skill stations, and case-based lectures.
