"This book is recommended for those new to hospitalist care who want a complete yet concise reference. Each chapter is thorough, but very concise."

Andrea Garaud, MD
Doody's Review, 2013

Developed by top pediatric hospitals, the all-new Caring for the Hospitalized Child: A Handbook of Inpatient Pediatrics is sure to become your go-to resource from initial evaluation through hospital discharge management.

Pediatric hospitalists with extensive hands-on experience offer proven recommendations for dozens of pediatric inpatient problems. Here's what you need to know - and what you need to do - for anaphylaxis; cardiac conditions; dermatological; ENT and GI issues; infectious diseases; seizure; eye trauma; fractures; physical and sexual abuse; and much more.

Turn to the condition or symptom set you're confronting for practical, right-to-the-point advice on:
- Clinical presentation
- Differential diagnosis
- Lab tests and imaging
- Treatment
- Indications for specialist consult
- Disposition
- Hospital discharge criteria
- Follow-up

- Exclusive clinical pearls
- Common pitfalls to avoid
- Coding tips to speed payment

Concise text descriptions and directions, action-focused bulleted lists, and at-a-glance charts and tables simplify hospital problem-solving. Conditions and symptoms are arranged alphabetically for ready reference.

This new resource reaches beyond the bedside to consider systems of care, equipment, ethics, economics, quality management, team leadership, and many other high-interest topics.
