Product Description

Review

"I have purchased three of your books: Paediatics, Obstetrics & Gynaecology, and Haematology. I have found the story–telling style and the level of detail contained in the cases to be balanced nicely so that it retains a realism that other case books lack and that reader remains engaged in the outcome of the investigations and the end–point of the case. All in all, these series make for interesting and entertaining reads which ultimately renders them an excellent learning tool.” – Medical Student,Trinity College Dublin "I would be very happy if my medical studetns read this book before an attachment! I think this format is excellent...it encourages the students to think clearly about real patients and not just learn facts in isolation." – Honorary Leturer, University of Leeds "This book covers a very wide range of material, from neonatal medicine in the sick preterm infant to the teenager who has taken an averdose. It contains a large number of cases which are all relevent to medical student learning...each case study gives details of relevent questions to ask in the history, examination findings and management plans...an excellent resource for final exam revision." – MSc Student, University of Liverpool Medical School "Fantastic. Very impressed and very easy to read...relevent cases and good layout." – Final Year Student, Warwick Medical School

Format: Paperback
This excellent book manages to successfully combine the benefits of traditional textbooks and case based learning, to provide a really useful resource for paediatrics rotations, or as a quick refresher!

The first section of the book provides an easy to read yet comprehensive account of development from birth through to puberty, childhood infections, immunisations, nutrition and genetics, with a number of helpful tables for quick and easy reference. There is also a very practical section on history taking and examination. One of the particular highlights of this section is a section, which lists common symptoms, possible diagnoses and important "not to miss" points - an easy list that's easy to remember and invaluable when a bit flummoxed on the ward/infront of your examiner!

The rest of the book is split up into 32 cases - from the tiny baby to the teenager who has taken an overdose. I was really impressed with the amount of information in these sections - after reading through a case you really feel like you have a good grip on a range of conditions. The book also has a very "practical" slant - in a case with a boy with autism it discusses a relative worried about the MMR, and in "the boy with fits" a simple flow chart for managing seizures in children. Each case requires you to think of a differential, key points of history and examination, reviewing differentials, further investigations, diagnosis and management. This active approach to learning holds your attention, and clearly highlights how well you know the topic, and the book clearly outlines a "best answer", with a helpful case review at the end. The book also has a useful MCQ/EMQ section for exam practice.

I was really impressed by this book.

Format: Paperback
The Clinical Cases Uncovered series of books that are case based books are certainly a useful book for any medical student to consider purchasing and using for themselves. Before purchasing though you must decide whether you want a series such as this that will simply walk you through each of the cases that you are presented with not so many opportunities to attempt to work through them yourself. If however you are looking for a title that will allow you to work through the case before you read a similarly detailed answer then why not consider the 100 cases series & in this case particularly 100 Cases in Paediatrics (Hodder Arnold Publication).

Should you wish a title that will walk you through each of the cases so that you can read & learn what the differentials and management options are before your exam then I would highly commend this title for you. It does not have as many cases for you to work through as the 100 cases series but those it does have are well written, easy to follow & certainly useful for getting your head around the presentation considered.

In conclusion these books are not too expensive but you could easily end up spending a lot of money if you were to get them all, so why not see for yourself whether your university has access to the title or if you are a BMA member why not get it out from the online library. Should you agree with this review then I would encourage you to strongly consider purchasing this title?

Borrowed from the library as doing Paeds at present and needed a refresher

Really easy to read book, seems to cover most of the key points and is succinct and written in an engaging way.

Highly recommended!

I feel I can almost read it cover to cover.. unheard of for a medical text book.

A book that approaches Paediatrics from a practical point of view. Since it's a case book, you'll probably need to read a textbook for the background knowledge (e.g. Illustated Textbook of Paediatrics), but if used in conjunction with other Paeds textbooks, I think you'll be fine.

This book was in perfect shape on arrival. Exactly as described. As regards content - a great revision guide, covers a lot of topics in an emergency department presentation and management format. Each topic is began as a presenting complaint and moves on to discuss differential and evolution of each case.
