Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is a much needed book. It contains the information needed to make fast, informed decisions. The Philadelphia Guide: Inpatient Pediatrics is much less cumbersome than Rudolf's and much more clinically based than Harriet Lane. I'm anxious to get it in my hands to use it!" - Medicine/Pediatrics Resident, Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston, South Carolina "The Philadelphia Guide: Inpatient Pediatrics is an excellent text. It is well written, easy-to-read, concise, and very complete. The book covers the most important topics encountered by pediatric residents. Topics are presented in a very straightforward and easy-to-understand manner - I've already used some examples to teach my interns and medical students! It included multiple treatment options, medication dosing and other pearls, which are very helpful, especially on the resident and attending staff level." - Internal Medicine and Pediatrics Resident, Tulane University, New Orleans, LA "The strengths of The Philadelphia Guide: Inpatient Pediatrics are its succinctness, the way the subjects are divided into headings, and the thoroughness of the information. There is definitely more specific and detailed information in this book than in the competition. This will be a very helpful and successful book, and a great resource to have on the wards. I would highly recommend this to my colleagues." - Pediatrics Resident, University of California, San Francisco, San Francisco, CA "With the hectic life of a Pediatric resident, this book will be a must. Compared to other texts that are often used in pediatrics, such as Nelson's or Rudolph's, The Philadelphia Guide: Inpatient Pediatrics seems to have as much information about each topic, but it's easier to find and it's better because there is more detail under the treatment sections." - Pediatrics Resident, The University Children's Hospital, University of Medicine and Dentistry, New Jersey, Newark, NJ "Overall, The Philadelphia Guide: Inpatient Pediatrics is a good book that I would recommend. The chapters cover a remarkable amount of material in a very concise manner that is easy to read and follow." - Pediatric Resident, Texas Children's Hospital, Ben Taub General Hospital, Houston, Texas "The Philadelphia Guide: Inpatient Pediatrics allows a good short review of important topics. It is obvious that a lot of work and effort went into it. I would recommend this to my fellow residents." - Medicine-Pediatrics Resident, Los Angeles County - USC Medical Center, Los Angeles, California "The Philadelphia Guide: Inpatient Pediatrics has a different, more clinically useful approach than other books. It gives clear directions for making a diagnosis, and good emphasis on differential diagnosis. One of the things that a resident has to learn to do is to rule in a diagnosis, and so this is a crucial addition to any book of this kind. There are sections here that are not found in other texts of this type (at least that I am aware of), so this will be seen as a valued resource." - Class of 2004, Tulane University, New Orleans, Louisiana "The Philadelphia Guide: Inpatient Pediatrics will be a wonderful addition to any med student or pediatric resident's collection. The information is easily accessible and the format style is terrific. I like the fact that each disease/section is broken down into epidemiology, etiology, differential diagnosis, pathophys, etc. At the attending level, this book may serve as a quick reference guide during rounds on the inpatient ward. The topics and information in this book would have been useful during rounds as a pediatrics resident. In fact, when it comes out I will definitely purchase this book even though I will be in fellowship." - Pediatrics Resident, The University Children's Hospital, University of Medicine and Dentistry, New Jersey, Newark, New Jersey

As a new pediatric resident, this book has become the most indispensible resource in my pocket.
Kids Doc
Even if you won't need it as much (because you feel you know everything =+P~ )It will look nice on your bookcase (it has a cute cover).
Ioannis Kopsidas
Honestly it covers so much, but in a short enough manner that you can read up on your patients before rounds, etc.

Format: Paperback
As a user of harrriet lane for years...This book goes beyond. As an easy to read, comprehensive resource for almost everything you will see as an inpatient house officer, I would recommend keeping it with you at all times. It is filled with all the questions you find yourself often looking up on those late night calls. It gives you the one line answers you are always looking for. It has information on conditions from the most basic to the most obscure and what you need to know about them. It provides answers to treatment, diagnosis, and guidelines.

Most of all it helps you treat patients, provide better care, and teach you at the same time. It includes chart, bold type, and subject heading formats. This book is AWESOME!!! Get yours today

The Philadelphia Guide: Inpatient Pediatrics fills a significant gap in practical pediatric texts. Harriet Lane has long been the standard, but is difficult to use, impractical at times, and incomplete. This book, which conveniently fits in a white coat pocket, is an indispensible resource for medical students and pediatric residents and fills the holes that Harriet leaves open. It give practical and complete, yet concise information on presentation and management of the diseases commonly encountered by the pediatric inpatient physician. As a new pediatric resident, this book has become the most indispensible resource in my pocket.

Small, Pocket sized, but complete. It covers most of the things that you want to remember 'right now and in 5 minutes' in a way that will give you a full understanding on the what it is, how you'll see it and what to do. It takes you from pahtophysiological and genetic information to diagnosis, to what lab-work to ask, to how to treat in less than two pages in most of the cases. Personally I prefer it than Harriet. Harriet can be confusing at some points and can be too concise when you require a little more detail.

It lacks in two things : No pictures (so what, H-L doesn't have any either) and you don't get extensive tables of dosages for drugs. (that's why it is not as bulky as h-l)

It has saved me plenty and it isn't as expensive. I would totally recommend it to any pediatrics residency student. Even if you won't need it as much (because you feel you know everything =+P~ )It will look nice on your bookcase (it has a cute cover).

I would not be surprised if this becomes the next generation's Harriet Lane. You will not regret this purchase. I
was skeptical myself before I bought it, but now, I am glad I bought this book that no one in my residency
program had even heard of.

This is a great book for easy reading & covers all inpatient pediatric subjects you will encounter in house. I only wish the book was smaller for my lab coat's pocket!

During my intern year I carried this book everywhere with me. I would read quickly on any new cases before rounds to be prepared for any questions from attendings and also to prepare prior to morning report. I always sounded smarter. Later as a senior I used it to read quickly prior to rounds to offer quick teaching points to interns and students.

I bought this book while I was doing a pediatric Sub-I, and I was amazed at how much information it has. Honestly it covers so much, but in a short enough manner that you can read up on your patients before rounds, etc. Now that I am in my peds residency, I use it all the time. The medical students that worked with my on wards said that it has "everything you're going to be pimped on." That's probably the most accurate description of this book! It has patho-physiology, clinical manifestations, differentials, and treatment plans. It's divided into systems, which are in alphabetical order, and each system's problems are also divided into ABC order, so you rarely need to use the index which is a big time saver. Most conditions fit on 1 to 2 pages. Very to the point. What else could you ask for? More and more of my peers are buying it, but I still leave mine on the nursing station, and very one uses it. Buy it! You'll be so glad you did!
