Pediatric patients can represent as much as 15-35% of all Emergency Department visits. Atlas Of Pediatric Emergency Medicine comes to the rescue of harried ED clinicians, providing a quick-access sourcebook packed with visual clues to infant/child injuries and illnesses presenting in emergency situations.

Doctors Shah and Lucchesi have combined an extraordinary number of the clearest and best clinical photographs and imaging examples with practical, straightforward text. It's a winning combination that expedites both diagnosis and the appropriate procedures for dealing with pediatric trauma and disease.
