Pediatric Pulmonology



  • Howard Panitch, MD, Division of Pulmonary Medicine, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Philadelphia, PA, USA

This new resource in the Requisites in Pediatrics series focuses on the assessment and treatment of pulmonary disorders commonly encountered in clinical practice. Abundant tables examine differential diagnosis, lab values/radiologic studies, treatment/therapy options, and when to refer to a specialist. A consistent organization throughout makes review easy, and chapters end with lists of key points. It's the ideal reference for a quick, efficient, and comprehensive review of essential information needed for board examinations or recertification.
