A Practical Approach to Clinical Paediatrics

Front Cover
World Scientific, 1996 - Medical - 213 pages
0 Reviews
Almost all paediatrics textbooks describe disease processes. This book is unique in that it deals with problems (symptoms) as they are presented to the doctor. The problems are approached in a manner that is common practice in clinical paediatrics, namely obtaining a history followed by physical examination, and planning investigations in order to elucidate the diagnosis. General principles of management are discussed without going into a detailed description of diseases and their management. The book will be of use to medical officers in paediatrics and general practice.
