Featuring over 400 full-color photographs, this atlas is a visual guide to the diagnosis and management of pediatric emergencies and acute conditions. It’s an indispensable reference in the emergency department, or in the pediatric clinic where rapid diagnosis depends on accurate physical observations.
Sections organized by body region/system cover acute medical problems, medical and surgical emergencies, and trauma, including child abuse. Each chapter begins with a brief overview of the type of emergency, presenting signs and symptoms, and differential diagnosis. Photographs showing specific emergencies comprise the bulk of each chapter and are accompanied by discussions of patient presentation, diagnostic studies, and management
