The most practice-oriented guide to diagnosing and managing infectious diseases in children

"...will serve as a valuable resource for medical students, residents, pediatricians, family physicians, emergency department physicians, pediatric nurses, and pediatric infectious disease specialists....I will put it in my library where I practice and will use it especially when I am looking for an algorithm for diagnosis or treatment or seeking photographs or illustrations of a specific disease. I will use other sections for teaching hospital residents about specific infections. It is reasonably priced and covers a large amount of clinical care applicable to adults and children."—JAMA

Part of the Pediatric Practice series, Pediatric Practice: Infectious Diseases is filled with practical, clinically relevant guidance for successful infectious disease management. The care of the patient forms the core of this indispensable resource, which also provides perspectives on epidemiology, pathophysiology, and diagnosis that every pediatrician, infectious disease specialist, and pediatric nurse needs to know.

The book's high-yield coverage includes detailed, yet precise overviews of specific infections and their etiology, along with proven diagnostic and management strategies that you can incorporate into your practice right away.

Features:

  • Tips that tell you what you must know—and what you must do—at every stage of care
  • Diagnostic and treatment algorithms
  • Signs/Symptoms and Differential Diagnosis boxes
  • "When to Refer" boxes, which examine all the relevant clinical considerations
  • Diagnostic Tests—with a realistic emphasis on the rights tests to order
  • Medical Treatment coverage that includes drugs, dosages, and administration in an easy-to-read tabular format
  • Convenient icons and a templated chapter design
  • Numerous clinical color photos and didactic diagrams

From The Critics

Reviewer: Russell W Steele, M.D.(Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This is essentially an abridged pediatric infectious disease hardcover book, one of four in this Pediatric Practice series. It is not as complete as a textbook nor does it contain the abundant ready reference tables characteristic of softcover handbooks. Rather, it is something in between.
Purpose: It is intended to provide primary care physicians, both office- and hospital-based, a practical and evidence-based resource to diagnose and treat commonly encountered pediatric infections. However, the content appears more appropriate for physicians in training who would prefer a shorter text to learn basic aspects of this subspecialty. Missing for the primary care provider are easy to locate management options, particularly antimicrobial selection and duration of treatment. Most of this information is in the text.
Audience: Although the editor states that the target audience is the generalist pediatrician, it seems most suitable for a resident or student doing a one month rotation with a pediatric infectious disease specialist. At 768 pages, the trainee could read 25 pages a day during the rotation and cover all the material.
Features: The book is unique in the way it is divided into four parts covering laboratory diagnosis and general aspects of infection control; signs and symptoms of disease; infections by anatomic location; and miscellaneous issues. This format, however, along with a rather incomplete index makes it difficult to find specific information in a practical fashion. The book is quite colorful and contains excellent photos. Some of the chapters also have useful algorithms, although often incomplete or dogmatic in style, e.g. the algorithm for acute otitis media offers no option other than "wait and see" for the infant over 6 months of age. Critically missing are tables that clearly summarize management options. Antibiotic choices are often incomplete; the only third-generation cephalosporin generally recommended is cefotaxime, yet many physicians prefer ceftriaxone for its convenient once-a-day dosing.
Assessment: This is a well written book with complete bibliographies. However, it will not be competitive with pediatric infectious disease books (e.g. Feigin and Cherry's Textbook of Pediatric Infectious Diseases, 6th edition, Feigin et al. (Elsevier, 2009), or the Red Book: 2009 Report of the Committee on Infectious Diseases, 28th edition (American Academy of Pediatrics, 2009)) as a current reference for the management of patients. There are also a number of handbooks that offer information in an easier to find format.
