Fleisher and Ludwig's 5-Minute Pediatric Emergency Medicine Consult offers comprehensive, practical information on over 500 pediatric emergency issues in a fast-access two-page "5 Minute" outline format for easy emergency department use. The book focuses specifically on pediatric emergency medicine, and complements Rosen and Barkin's 5-Minute Emergency Medicine Consult, which focuses on adult emergency management, with pediatrics as a secondary focus. Coverage includes clinical presentation, pre-hospital, diagnosis, treatment, disposition, ICD-9 coding, and pitfalls. Treatment recommendations are congruent with those of recognized, authoritative sources including the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American College of Emergency Medicine. The book includes pediatric medical, surgical, and environmental/poisoning emergencies, and contains reference information such as vital signs, resuscitation equipment sizes, and medication doses.
