I am med-peds trained, practicing hospital and emergency medicine for both adults and kids. I have also practiced primary care. This book has pros and cons:

Pros:

Compact

Ringed binder allows you to leave out pages you don't need or add others to it (if you see adults and kids, you can put MGH's Pocket Medicine book along with these pages in one binder).

Contains some very good info in table and outline format

Cons:

Index is not very helpful (lists every page that mentions a topic even in passing, without letting the reader know which pages are devoted to the topic).

Missing important info (two examples: next to nothing for AAP neonatal jaundice guidelines, just refers you to the seminal Bhutani paper; a similar lack of info on indications for antibiotics in neonates...these are common, important clinical situations)

Pricey for the size

Much like the pocket medicine book we all love, this book contains all of the high-yield, easily-readable information you need to know to take care of your patients as a House Officer. While I have piles of medical books collecting dust, this is one of the four books I ACTUALLY use and one of the two books I keep in my pocket. It's weak in neonatology, but it makes up for it in PICU material. If it only had a few pages dedicated to medication dosing, I'd be leaving my Harriet at home. If I had to pick one book to carry with me, this would be it.

Exactly like pocket medicine for pediatrics. I survived med school rotations with pocket medicine and am now doing the same as a peds resident with this new version. Great review and references on every topic. The most comprehensive and condensed book you can carry around. I would take it over my harriet lane any day.

I am a Med/Peds resident who was looking for a good companion to my Pocket Medicine: The Massachusetts General Hospital Handbook of Internal Medicine (Pocket Notebook Series) (Ring-bound). My Pocket Medicine is very well used and an excellent resource. I have had Pocket Pediatrics in my coat for the last two months and have referred to it a couple of times. As with Pocket Medicine, there are many subjects not covered or not covered in great detail, but a comprehensive resource is not what this book is meant to be. So far, it's usefulness on the wards has been adequate and I hope to update this review when I have had more time with it.

I am just too lazy to carry around a heavy Harriet Lane or other handbook. There is no formulary which makes this book much lighter. For on the go reading and quick reference, it is my favorite. My current white coat won't hold any other peds book I've seen. Good quality, light, and small enough for a small pocket white coat.

I thought that the book will be as good as Pockect Medicine but it is not. It is too scanty with paucity of information. Will not recommend.

I'm a PA student and this was recommended by my instructor. I have referenced it several times already. It gives dosages for tx and covers nicu to the older limit of pediatrics. Would recommend.
