The third edition of this classic textbook has been fully revised and updated by thirty-nine contributing authors. Essential information about the medical care of infants, children, and adolescents is presented in a highly readable self-instructional format for medical students. The text may also be used in training programs for nurse practitioners and physician assistants. The thirty chapters present dynamic scenarios illustrating a variety of medical situations involving children and then take the reader through decision-making processes for diagnosis and treatment. Features: Full coverage from birth through adolescence Charts, tables, and illustrations detailing diagnostic tools, emergency procedures, differential diagnoses, and clinical findings and their proper interpretation Concise self-instruction based on specific topics and objectives Self-test (with answers) for each chapter Praise for previous editions: ''An original approach to teaching about patients rather than diseases . . . The student will learn how to decide which children may be treated at home, which need further investigation, and which are in `pre-arrest status.' The text is profusely illustrated with short clinical histories and each chapter is followed by ten to twenty multiple-choice questions.''--New England Journal of Medicine ''An excellent short textbook for students . . . The problem-solving approach taken by these authors represents a laudable effort to help our students become more active learners and apply pathophysiology effectively to clinical medicine.''--Pamela R. Wood, M.D., University of Texas, San Antonio
