Diagnosing pediatric issues can be particularly challenging because children often have difficulty communicating effectively. This helpful resource is a must for all medical students, residents and practitioners working with children. The book is divided into twelve sections based on general symptom areas including the respiratory system, the gastrointestinal system, and dermatology. Within each section there are specific chapters dedicated to presenting symptoms. For example the neurology section includes chapters on headaches, seizures, ataxia and more. Each chapter walks the reader step-by-step, in both words and flow charts, through investigative procedures and lab tests needed for definitive diagnoses. Also included is access to a searchable eBook version. ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
