Summary

Now in its revised, updated Fourth Edition, this best-selling reference provides immediate, practical advice on problems seen in infants, children, and adolescents. More than 450 diseases are covered in the fast-access two-page outline format that makes The 5-Minute Consult Series titles so popular among busy clinicians. Other features include a Chief Complaints section addressing the workup and treatment of 50 signs and symptoms, plus a medication index, syndromes glossary, surgical glossary, laboratory values, and tables. The Fourth Edition includes new material on acetaminophen poisoning, carbon monoxide poisoning, Cyclospora diarrhea, functional diarrhea, methemoglobinemia, rotavirus, and salicylate poisoning (aspirin). Also included are up-to-the-minute treatment recommendations and new information on SARS and other emerging infections, fever and petechiae, sexually transmitted disease evaluation, knee pain, ankle sprain, and urethritis. This edition will be available for PDAs in August 2005.
