About this title:
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.

Each book in this series serves as a quick reference and practical guide to emergencies occurring in clinical practice. Aimed at front-line junior doctors, trainees, and nurses who need rapid information in a compact, easily accessible format, the books will also appeal to any health care professional who requires access to easy-to-follow guidelines.
The style is concise, mostly in bullet-point style, allowing quick reading and enabling a light, pocket-sized book for portability. The books take a problem-based approach to managing situations, including a guide to making a diagnosis. Where possible, they cover one topic per one to three pages and use icons to indicate the degree of urgency that the patient should be seen. Algorithms are used extensively as guidelines for management.
