"...A comprehensive and current resource for anyone who cares for children in an acute setting." -- JAMA (review of previous edition)

Endorsed by the American College of Emergency Physicians, this thoroughly updated, full-color resource presents a complete overview of pediatric emergency medicine.

Pediatric Emergency Medicine begins with an essential symptom-based section on cardinal presentations that familiarizes you with crucial life-saving protocols. Subsequent sections cover all major categories of disease--from respiratory failure to pediatric hypertension--that present in children on an urgent or emergent basis.


  • Broad scope of the text spans the entire spectrum of pediatric emergencies, from resuscitation and trauma, to gastrointestinal and psychosocial emergencies
  • Over 100 diagnostic and treatment algorithms present an at-a-glance review of best practices for optimizing patient care
  • 1200 color images show you what to expect and what to do
  • Chapter-opening key points, followed by concise coverage of pathophysiology, offers incisive guidance on what needs to be done to effectively stabilize and treat the pediatric patient
  • NEW! Chapter on foreign bodies offers an in-depth overview of this common pediatric problem
  • NEW! Updated references throughout include the most recent pediatric emergency guidelines and recommendations from professional societies
