The ONLY handbook on pediatric hospitalist medicine!
Focusing specifically on caring for pediatric patients in the hospital setting, this unique handbook addresses more than 350 of the most commonly encountered inpatient pediatric medical conditions. Unlike similar handbooks on the subject, The Philadelphia Guide goes beyond diagnostic strategies to include complete treatment and management guidelines.
The emphasis on the treatment of so many inpatient conditions makes the book valuable to anyone who cares for pediatric patients in the hospital – medical students, residents, and pediatric attendings. Designed for immediate access, the handbook features alphabetized clinical sections and consistent chapter subheadings to make the book especially useful at the point of care.
