Severely unwell children are the most frightening emergency a clinician can face. This handbook aims to guide 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. Emergencies in Paediatrics and Neonatology is a symptom-based handbook which concisely covers a range of essential information, from the key facts to elicit in the history to thespecific difficulties of 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.This will be invaluable for those working with acutely ill children, staff in accident and emergency medicine, and general practitioners. It will also be a useful pocket guide for all junior doctors who see children, including surgeons and anaesthetists.
