Severely unwell children are the most frightening emergency a clinician can face. This second edition of Emergencies in Paediatrics and Neonatology, guides the clinician through what to do and when, in a format that can be read at the bedside. Resuscitation techniques are described in detail and comprehensive management plans are provided. Organised by symptom, the handbook concisely covers a range of essential information, from the key facts to elicit in the history to the specific difficulties of treating children in an emergency situation - communication and pain relief. Symbols are used to indicate clinical severity ranging from life-threatening to minor, and the book includes detailed drug dosages for children and the most recent resuscitation guidelines. The new edition brings this bestselling guide fully up-to-date, including the management of anaphylaxis and rheumatic fever. The number of algorithms included in the book has also been increased.
