Widely acclaimed for its outstanding step-by-step illustrations, comprehensive coverage, and reader-friendly format, Textbook of Pediatric Emergency Procedures is now in its thoroughly updated Second Edition. In 137 chapters, the book provides clear, complete instructions on every emergency medicine procedure performed on infants, children, and adolescents. More than 1,000 detailed drawings, most in two-color, show how to perform each procedure.

This edition includes a new chapter on new technologies and techniques for managing the difficult airway. Other new topics include use of tissue adhesives in laceration repair, focused abdominal sonography for trauma (FAST), management of priapism, reimplanting an avulsed permanent tooth, use of automatic external defibrillators, and procedures related to bioterrorism.
