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.
