Back cover copy

"I highly recommend this as a clinical resource."
"This is the 24th edition of a practical, clinically relevant reference for pediatric providers from the student to practitioner level. The book is well organized for use as a quick reference.
The purpose is to provide an up-to-date, clinically relevant, easy-to-use reference for pediatric providers. The authors and contributors have done an excellent job of fulfilling these worthy objectives.
Intended for pediatric providers from the students to practitioners, this book is also a practical resource for nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, medical students, residents, fellows, and attending physicians. It can be used as a quick resource, but it also provides some background and aspects of pathophysiology, although the primary focus is on diagnosis and management. The references are relevant and up to date.
This is organized to be a practical and easily accessible reference for clinicians at every level. I really appreciate the section on the essentials of diagnosis and typical features in each chapter section. The book is well organized and presents the most important and clinically relevant information.
The figures and charts are adequate for clinicians and the references enable readers to learn more about each topic.The authors and contributors have worked very hard to provide a reference with an emphasis on diagnosis and management, while at the same time including some background and pathophysiology. I highly recommend this as a clinical resource."
