Controversies in Pediatric Appendicitis
Although appendicitis is the leading cause of an acute surgical abdomen in children, many areas of controversy exist in diagnosis and medical and surgical management of this condition. Written in a practical, easy-to-use format, Controversies in Pediatric Appendicitis provides a thorough overview of these debated issues, careful to include perspectives on every aspect of care. The book begins with an introductory framework that examines the history of pediatric appendicitis, the epidemiology of disease, defining a complicated diagnosis, the role and efficacy of laboratories in diagnosis, and use and overuse of radiographic imaging for appendicitis. Later chapters cover antibiotic selection, surgical approaches to appendicitis, non-operative management of acute and perforated appendicitis, discussion of potential complications, as well as appendicitis in special pediatric situations like malignancy and other instances of immune suppression. Each chapter follows a similar format, beginning with clinical vignettes and concluding with pearls and pitfalls to provide readers with necessary clinical grounding and context with which to examine each of these areas of current controversy.
A unique, first-of-its-kind book, Controversies in Pediatric Appendicitis is an ideal resource for pediatric surgeons, interventional radiologists, emergency room specialists, and all providers and surgeons that care for children with appendicitis.

It is an easy, quick access reference that can be used for those facts that are absolutely essential, but are often difficult to remember. Color images and flow charts allow doctors to grasp the essentials quickly, while more detailed explanations are included alongside for trainees.

Fleisher and Ludwig’s 5-Minute Pediatric Emergency Medicine Consult offers comprehensive, practical information on over 800 pediatric emergency issues in a fast-access two-page “5 Minute” outline format for easy emergency department use. The book focuses specifically on pediatric emergency medicine and is utterly distinct from Rosen and Barkin’s 5-Minute Emergency Medicine Consult , which focuses on adult management, with pediatrics as a distant “second”. This book is also distinct from from The 5-Minute Pediatric Consult , which covers primary care issues but does not adequately address emergency concerns and management. Coverage includes clinical presentation, pre-hospital, diagnosis, treatment, disposition, ICD-10 coding, and pitfalls. Treatment recommendations are congruent with those of recognized, authoritative sources including the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American College of Emergency Medicine. The book includes pediatric medical, surgical, and environmental/poisoning emergencies, and contains reference information such as vital signs, resuscitation equipment sizes, and medication doses as well as instructions on common pediatric EM procedures.
Pediatric Emergency Medicine: Chief Complaints and Differential Diagnosis 1st Edition
Pediatric patients are a unique subset of emergency patients, making up about one-quarter of all emergency department visits. Textbooks regarding the care of pediatric patients are almost universally organized by organ system, which does not facilitate an efficient diagnosis. Taking a case-based approach, Pediatric Emergency Medicine: Chief Complaints and Differential Diagnosis is arranged by chief complaint, using real patient scenarios to help the reader work through the inductive and deductive reasoning needed to assess, evaluate, treat, and disposition pediatric patients with urgent complaints. Cases are structured in the way in which they are presented during medical care, allowing practitioners to become comfortable with the general structure of case presentations: chief complaint, HPI, PMH, ROS, exam, and ancillary studies. This volume also discusses disease processes and their differentiations, providing in-depth knowledge regarding current standards of diagnosis and care.

Cases appear in random order, reflecting actual practice in emergency medicine, and reinforcing skills in investigation, diagnosis, and treatment. It is superbly illustrated with high-quality radiographic images and photographs and is indispensable for all health professionals dealing with emergencies involving children.
