An easily-accessible paediatric medical resource for junior doctors and paediatric specialists
Nocton & Gedeit's On Call Paediatrics is an instant reference or practice book for medical students and junior medical officers with otherwise limited exposure to paediatric issues.
The book consolidates a broad range of common paediatric problems – both acute and intensive – into a single user-friendly medical guide. Each problem is supported by the necessary clinical skills and rational steps that must be considered from the outset.
Nocton & Gedeit's On Call Paediatrics follows the established format of the ‘On Call’ series, using techniques such as the ‘telephone call’, ‘bedside’ and ‘acute corridor consult’ as essentials for effective clinical troubleshooting in paediatric issues.
As well as being the ultimate ‘On Call’ guide, this reputable paediatric textbook is extremely useful as a learning tool for those on paediatric rotation.
• beginning-to-end advice and support – starting from the time doctors are called about a problem
• covers acute and intensive care paediatric issues, medical and surgical problems, and paediatric traumatology
• provides an initial corridor consult which often occurs in the few frantic moments before the doctor arrives on the floor to clinically troubleshoot a problem
• is an Australian adaptation of the US book On Call Pediatrics
• also available as an eBook! A code inside On Call Paediatrics enables a full text download, allowing you to browse and search electronically, make notes and bookmarks in the electronic files and highlight material.
