"This is a unique and novel approach to a pediatric handbook. It is the first that I can remember that is written by house staff, although it is reviewed by attendings and is very thorough. 3 Stars."--Doody's Revivew Service

Featuring an instant-access, find-it-now presentation, Texas Children’s Hospital Handbook of Pediatrics and Neonatology delivers concise, evidence-based information that is directly applicable to bedside care of the patient in both pediatrics and neonatology.

Authored and reviewed by more than 125 residents, fellows, and faculty at Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston, Texas, this compact guide features content especially selected for its value to students, trainees, and junior faculty.

  • Key medications/dosages, research, and review articles are cited directly in the text
