A complete revision of this successful pocketbook, the fourteenth edition of A Paediatric Vade-Mecum provides the junior doctor and trainee grade paediatrician with invaluable information on the diagnosis and management of illness in children, and with practical evidence-based advice for the safe and effective management of the sick child.
Retaining the easy-to-digest style that has made previous editions so popular, the content has been restructed into five major sections: acute paediatric problems, outpatient paediatrics, formulary, normal values and glossary of terms, with entries in sections 1 and 2 organised alphabetically for ease of reference. Pre-registration house officers, SHOs and SpRs in Paediatrics, and GPs in training should not be without a personal copy.
