From the Inside Flap
The most complete, authoritative, and up-to-date guide to
children's symptoms available--from the most respected authority on child and adolescent heath care in America
"Keep it close at hand."
--Sesame Street Parents magazine
When an infant or small child is ill, it is often very difficult for a parent to understand the nature of the problem. The American Academy of Pediatrics Guide to Your Child's Symptoms enables a parent to identify a symptom quickly, learn its possible cause, and determine how best to proceed. More than one hundred symptoms are listed alphabetically, and the text and illustrations that accompany each one are arranged in easy-to-follow charts. The Guide also includes:
¸ Advice and guidelines on evaluating the seriousness of the symptom
and what action a parent should take, complete with a specific
section on when to consult a pediatrician
¸ Comprehensive entries covering all children from birth
¸ Scores of sidebars on important topics such as recognizing language
milestones, correcting eye problems, and stopping a nosebleed
¸ An illustrated guide to basic first aid
¸ Guidelines for safety and accident prevention
Widely praised for its unprecedented user-friendly style and format, the hardcover edition of the Guide to Your Child's Symptoms was a number one Library Journal reference bestseller and a selection of the Literary Guild. The book also won the 1998 American Medical Writers Association Medical Book Award for Lay Readers, as well as a 1998 National Health Information Award.
