5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for med students January 6, 2009
I really liked how concise it is on the management of diverse pediatric pathologies, specially the algorithms. I am a med student and I found it very useful during my internship in pediatrics, specially in the emergency department. The section with the drugs and all the tips about them (dosage, adverse effects, when not to use it, etc) are really helpful for med students who won't specialise in this area and who want to have a general knowledge on this subject.
It's very helpful for a review on the area, not as a book for the first study of this subject.

5.0 out of 5 stars Priceless! December 28, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Very peds focused. I purchased this item before starting my peds rotations in FNP school and it was a life-saver. Additionally I have used older versions of this book in acute care for years, as have MD associates as well. I will hold on to this one, and recommend it strongly! (especially over lexicomps peds drugbook--waste of money)

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfec t gift for graduating medical student January 30, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The Harriet Lane Handbook has long been a trusted resource for pediatric residents and a good quick reference for practicing pediatricians. Even in this day of internet access, having a pocket manual for quick access is valuable. The book is updated by the residents at John's Hopkins every couple of years and therefore remains current. It contains concise information on development, immunology, infectious diseases, drug doses, nutrition, lab values, etc etc.

4.0 out of 5 stars Expected by my attendings August 21, 2010
I had an attending chastise me at one point for not carrying around a Harriet Lane. It is a good book, but I don't think it's necessarily the best. It's main weakness is that it is too big to carry in your pocket book; it is by no means pocket size. It's not the best for medical students as it often doesn't include basic things like common presenting symptoms of common disease. But it's considered the gold standard for residency.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Handbook October 21, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm a FM resident and I find it very useful in my clinic and in my in patient, lots of basic "must know facts" about pediatric diagnosis and management. I just wish instead of a free online consult is a free downloadable app so I can load it on my touch, that will awesome you have a handbook and if you forget to bring it you will have it on your touch or iphone. I guess soon they will do that but I guess it's all about money making thing, which I think will be the trend in the future of all medical handbook and textbook will have their own app which all updatable. Anybody there who is a computer geek this will a great way to be making money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Harriet Lane Pediatric Handbook July 23, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book for my 4th year pediatric acting internship. I thought that it was very helpful. Most of the residents at my school use this book for reference. I would recommend it, especially as a quick reference for pediatric doses of medications.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Pharm, OK for the rest March 23, 2010
By fishy5
If you're going into peds, there's no way to escape this book. That said, at my school at least, this book has a reputation for being fantastic in terms of the Pharmacology (I wish more pharm books were written the way this section is), solid on the Fluids and Electrolytes section, and average-to-iffy on the which I mean there is a lot that's missing, and a lot that is wrong (often lazy editing mistakes, like mistyped formulas...which is okay if you already know the formula is wrong, but can be tricky ground if you're an M3 doing your peds clerkship).

So if your school or program doesn't have online access, you're probably fated to buy or borrow this book...just be careful the way in which you use the non-Formulary sections...there are many other more comprehensive and more accurate resources out there.
