Book Description

September 24, 2004 0323011993 978-0323011990
Extensively illustrated and uncommonly user-friendly, this brand-new text provides a logical, "hands on" approach to the care of the pediatric patient. Written by an international team of subspecialists and edited by an outstanding team of pediatric generalists, it offers expert coverage that can be applied in everyday practice-in a highly templated format that makes finding information a snap. Readers will find comprehensive coverage of basic science, health promotion and disease prevention, general and chronic medical care, newborn and adolescent care, mental health care, diagnostic and therapeutic interventions, and more. And, a bonus CD-ROM offers additional images, video clips, and other supplemental materials.
  • Emphasizes clinical practice, including diagnosis, management, and referral.
  • Offers authoritative guidance in a user-friendly, easy-access format.
  • Organizes material according to the way pediatricians learn and practice-addressing the fundamentals of basic science and then health promotion and disease prevention.
  • Features a "mini-index" at the end of each chapter to assist the reader in finding information quickly and easily.
  • Includes a wealth of tables and charts, as well as clinical photographs to aid in diagnosis, and algorithms for guidance on treatment.
  • Allows for quick access to important information with cross-referencing between chapters and the use of color-coded tabs.
  • Comes with a bonus CD-ROM that includes additional images, video clips, and other supplemental materials.

5.0 out of 5 stars Book of the future October 8, 2004
I am pretty certain this book will become a yardstick in pediatrics. The first edition is so promising that it will soon replace all other big tomes. The accompanying CD is a bonus. It contains host of useful information, audio and video clips. I congratulate publishers (Mosby)and authors for producing such a wonderful book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pediatrics October 18, 2005
The book Pediatrics by Osborn, DeWitt and Zenel is a unique textbook. Its novel cover compels the viewer to open it. I have been a pediatrician for 47 years and there has not been a textbook so well formulated. The various colors identify the topics and make it useful for anyone. When appropriate, the authors include recommendations for the patient, parent, family and community in the treatment of the condition.

The textbook is appropriate for medical students, residents, practicing physicians and nurses.
