About the Authors
  • Caring for newborns and infants in the first year of life can be anxiety-provoking and challenging, especially for the emergency physician. This book addresses the most common complaints that an emergency provider may have to evaluate and treat. It is divided into three sections for quick access to a variety of medical conditions. Section I covers the basics of neonate care in the emergency room and includes the general exam, airway management, and sedation. Section II focuses on specific common complaints, such as failure to thrive, fever, and seizures. Section III covers management of specific systems, including cardiology, dermatology, and toxicology. The Appendixes include handy pediatric formulas, immunization schedules, and easy-to-use algorithms and tables. A practical resource for a wide range of health providers, from medical students, residents, and Fellows to attending physicians.

    • Focuses on the infant and neonate, unlike other pediatric emergency medicine books
    • Easily accessible format, organized into three main sections: basic principles, chief complaints, specific systems
    • Designed especially for the emergency physician, from the medical student to attending physicians
