"This textbook is a refreshing update to the existing pediatric emergency medicine literature. With over 200 contributors, the editors of this text have provided a comprehensive review of problems facing pediatric emergency and urgent care providers. Perhaps the book’s greatest strength is its color graphics which elevate this text to a level above similar publications.
I found this text to be extremely well organized and inclusive of all problems relevant to emergency pediatric care. This text will be a great addition to any ED or urgent care clinic library."

The layout is exceptionally appealing and makes good use of figures and tables. The glossy full-color pages allow for abundant use of high-quality photographs and graphics. One of the biggest strengths is the extensive references inserted into the text of each chapter, allowing the reader to look up a particular citation when needed. Pediatric Emergency Medicine should be considered an excellent resource to be added to the library of anyone caring for children in the emergency department."
