Pediatrics Recall, Third Edition reviews disease entities to facilitate retention and mimic verbal testing covered in a pediatric clerkship. Its unique question-and-answer format is retained. Organized by disease process and involved systems, the text includes descriptions, signs, symptoms, pathophysiology essentials, treatments, and possible outcomes. Topics include basic issues in neonatal and pediatric fluid management, blood products, nutrition, growth, emergencies, and intensive care. One chapter is solely devoted to issues relating to the adolescent patient.
This edition has more material on the well-child review and more illustrations. The smaller pocket size makes it even more convenient for use on clinical rotations.
