A practical hands-on tool for fast, accurate clinical diagnosis in pediatric emergencies

Pediatric patients can represent as much as 35% of all emergency department visits. This atlas comes to the rescue of harried ED clinicians by providing a quick-access resource packed with visual clues to injuries and illnesses presenting in emergency situations from infancy through adolescence.

Doctors Shah and Lucchesi have compiled an extraordinary collection of their best clinical photographs and imaging studies, and combined them with a practical, easily retrievable text. This combination promises to expedite diagnosis as well as guide the clinician to the appropriate management of pediatric trauma and disease.

Atlas Of Pediatric Emergency Medicine puts at your fingertips:

  • More than 550 top-quality color clinical photographs, and more than 250 imaging studies that include X-rays, CT scans and more -- making it the single most comprehensive visual compilation available for diagnosing pediatric emergencies
  • Comprehensive coverage of disorders of all body systems, including trauma
  • Authoritative, experienced guidance. The Atlas has been edited, compiled, and largely written by two distinguished experts -- one a physician peer-evaluated as one of the finest clinicians and teachers in Emergency Medicine today, the other the overseer of one of the largest, busiest EDs in the United States. Together they have more than 50 years of experience in emergency care
  • Consistent formatting in an outline that provides immediate access to clinical features, differential diagnosis, consultation, treatment and disposition, complications, and clinical pearls
  • A superb preparation tool for board exams and subspecialty certification
  • An unparalleled resource for every medical professional caring for children, from ED clinicians and physicians in family or pediatric practice to nurse practitioners and paramedics
  • From inside the book
