5.0 out of 5 stars A concise and comprehensive overview of paediatrics, 24 May 2014
By 
This review is from: Lecture Notes: Paediatrics (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The lecture notes in paediatrics gives a comprehensive but concise overview of paediatrics. In 320 pages it covers all the essential knowledge requirement for rotation through paediatrics and beyond. Divided into 4 parts , the first part covers the essential of paediatrics which introduces us to the child health, parents and children, listening and talking and examination of children.
The 2nd part deals with normal and abnormal childhood: encompassing growth,development, behaviour and prevention. While the part 3 deals with the systems and specialities. Part four of the book I found uniquely intriguiting as it deal with 'after paediatrics' - this has three chapters covering preparation for clinical exams in paediatrics , safe prescribing and careers in paediatrics. I think this is a very valuable chapter both for the undergraduates but also for any one preparing for the DCH and the membership exams.
It has a self test section at the end with Emqs for each of the 24 chapters and answers with explanations. Inserted into various chapters are OSCE stations and OSCE tip boxes, the comprehensive list of all the stations can be found at the beginning of the book.
I love this book because It is very reader friendly with colour coding and useful practical hints. Being that it is succinct it is very easy to read thorough quickly. In the very early pages you have a section on how to use the book which explains all the features contained in the book and how to use it. It has a companion website which one can visit for online self test and it also contains the PDF of the paediatric symptom sorter, a very useful tool.
I highly recommend this book to all medical students and speciality doctors rotating through paediatrics and anyone interested in a quick overview of paediatrics.
