    Looking after children with life-limiting conditions is very difficult for both parents and health care professionals. This second edition of Paediatric Palliative Medicine is full of easily-accessible, detailed information , and covers all aspects of the care of children with life-limiting illnesses. It is designed to equip clinicians with the knowledge, and its evidence base, to improve clinical care.

    Using the bestselling Oxford Specialist Handbook format to deliver practical and concise information, this handbook facilitates bedside delivery of effective palliative medicine to children. It includes a quick reference drug formulary and detailed information on medical conditions and symptom control. There are also specific management plans to guide professionals, whether the child is in their own home, in a hospital, or a hospice.

    Many children with long term conditions have symptoms which need management, and the principles of palliative care for children need to be known by all who are involved in their care. The unique significance of this handbook is its capacity to guide professionals who have not trained or had experience of caring for the dying child, as well as for students and trainees interested in paediatric palliative care.

    Children's palliative medicine encompasses symptom control but is not limited to it. This handbook also provides a wealth of information on the philosophy and models that support delivery of palliative medicine to children, as well as the learning and coping skills required in palliative care.

    Fully updated with an expanded formulary and a new chapter on the intensive care unit, this new edition continues to be the authoritative reference tool in paediatric palliative care.

  • Infant Safe Sleep: A Pocket Guide for Clinicians
    La comanda in aproximativ 4 saptamani

    This book is a practical, comprehensive look at safe sleep for infants, including safe sleep for infants with co-occurring medical conditions. Currently there is a dearth of resources on this topic for general pediatricians and other clinicians who provide health care to infants.  The only evidence-based information about sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) and other sleep-related infant deaths is published in policy statements and technical reports published by the American Academy of Paediatrics. However pediatricians, public health professionals, and others who provide health care, anticipatory guidance, and/or health education to parents often have difficulty translating the policy recommendations to practice.

    This book gives guidance and suggestions for clinicians for counseling parents and other caretakers of infants. It discusses common barriers to adherence, as well as approaches that are evidence-based or use behavior change theory. Chapters focus on important aspects of the sleep environment, evaluating commonly sold sleep products, and common sleep practices, including roomsharing and bedsharing. There is also a thorough discussion of SIDS pathophysiology, and a closing chapter on grief and counselling families after a loss.

    Each chapter follows an organizational structure, to promote consistency and ensure this remains a practical, easy-to-use tool. Chapters open with a clinical vignette and close with a discussion of frequently encountered questions, and clinical pearls and pitfalls. Infant Safe Sleep is a valuable resource for pediatricians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants as well as social workers, allied health professionals, public health practitioners, health educators, WIC nutritionists and child care providers.

    Symptom-Based Diagnosis in Pediatrics features 19 chapters, each devoted to a common pediatric complaint. Within each chapter, five to eight case presentations teach the diagnostic approach to the symptom. The case presentations follow a consistent outline of History, Physical Examination, and Course of Illness, and are followed by discussion of the Differential Diagnosis, Diagnosis Incidence and Epidemiology, Clinical Manifestations, Diagnostic Approach, and Treatment. Cases are illustrated with vibrant full-color photographs and include numerous tables comparing potential diagnoses.

    • Organized by symptoms--the way patients actually present
    • More than 100 cases teach the diagnostic approach to a symptom
    • Cases illustrate how the same complaint can have a variety of causes
    • Full-color clinical photos and illustrations sharpen your visual diagnosis skills
    • Valuable tables detail the most frequent causes of common symptoms

    It is now more than ten years since the publication of the first edition of Textbook of Paediatric Emergency Medicine and interest in this specialty continues to grow at a local and international level. Paediatric emergency medicine can be a challenging and difficult area for doctors. Children cannot always communicate their problems verbally, while parents are anxious and the possibility of a missed diagnosis is ever present. Although the principles in managing paediatric patients are the same as adults there are significant differences in patterns of illness and response. In addition, the therapies available vary widely between adult and paediatric practice. Textbook of Paediatric Emergency Medicine provides clear, concise and comprehensive coverage of all the major topics that present within paediatric emergency medicine. It offers a consensus approach to diagnosis and treatment, drawing on the latest evidence available. Short chapters with key point boxes allow for the quick and easy retrieval of information, essential when time is short. This Third Edition captures the major changes in guidelines across the specialty in the assessment and management of paediatric patients, whilst refining established approaches to practice. The text reviews both new technologies and the better application of older techniques which have led to changes in practice. There are significant updates to the sections on resuscitation and trauma, the clinical applications of bedside ultrasound, analgesia and sedation. There is also a new focus on the teaching and research sections.
