Pocket Emergency Paediatric Care

A pocket sized book containing the information needed immediately when confronted with a critically ill or injured neonate, baby or child. Contains, in a well presented format, all of the information relevant to clinical management within the first 1-2 hours after presentation. Is not dependent on high technology inputs and therefore most information within the pocket book is applicable anywhere in the world. There is also an emphasis, in addition to preventing mortality and morbidity, on the relief of suffering. There is thus a section on pain control. The book is laid out in a way that ensures easy access in an emergency. The sale of this book in rich countries will help support its distribution at low cost in poorly resourced countries.
