Editorial Reviews

Review

“This is one of the most useful books in this area and I have routinely recommended it for all fellows and residents in our university and hospital.”  (Doody’s, 24 August 2012)

From the Back Cover

This new edition of Handbook of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology: Children's Hospital & Research Center Oakland features practical guidance on how to handle common inpatient and outpatient challenges seen in pediatric hematology and oncology. Designed as a rapid reference to the latest diagnostic and therapeutic protocols, the text is short and didactic and supplemented with practical algorithms and case studies throughout. Completely revised and updated, there are brand-new chapters on subjects including bone marrow transplantation, pain management and palliative care. Comprehensive, yet concise, the handbook presents essential guidelines on the diagnosis and management of the most common pediatric blood disorders and malignancies, in addition to chemotherapeutic drug information and transfusion protocols.

Designed for medical students, residents, and fellows, this user-friendly portable reference is also the perfect companion on the ward for pediatric hematology and oncology nurses.

This was a very good basic peds heme/onc book. I wanted a quick reference book to use while on my pediatric heme/onc rotation and this fits the bill. The chapters break down major topics (e.g. hemolytic anemia, hemophilia, thrombocytopenia, acute leukemias, germ cell tumors, etc.) but the book isn't all-encompassing. It covers topics with enough detail that I felt I could successfully answer questions from my attending while on rounds and confidently talk to and answer questions from patient's parents. But it's not so detailed that I felt like I needed to be a heme/onc fellow or attending in order to understand the material.

Pros:
-Lots of algorithms: Covers approaches to working up different heme/onc conditions (one of the features that made me decide to get this book instead of other books)
-Lots of tables: Easy-to-find visual representations of symptoms, lab findings, differentials, treatments, etc.
-Case Studies: At the end of some chapters there are cases to review and reinforce what the chapter covered
-Formulary Chapter: Lists chemo agents, dosing, mechanism of action, pregnancy category, indications, side effects
-Procedure/Therapy Chapters: Not something you might think of right away but definitely important topics in the management of heme/onc patients (e.g. transfusion medicine, stem cell transplantation, central venous catheters, acute pain management, palliative care, guide to procedures)
-Relatively compact size: At about 9 x 6 x 0.75 inches, it's a little too big to fit in my lab coat pocket. But it's lightweight and small enough that I could carry it around all day with no problems

Cons:
-No histopathology images: Seems like that would've been an obvious thing to include in a heme/onc book

All in all, this is book has been very helpful to me and I would recommend it to anyone in need of a basic pediatric heme/onc reference.

For someone in Pulmonary, you can imagine I really just need a cursory over-view of hematology and oncology. That said, I appreciate the survey in the field of heme-onc that truthfully I fall back on more often that one might think. For pediatric residents, this is a fair amount of information (particularly on the long road leading to boards), and this is a really handy reference to have around. For Heme-Onc professionals/fellows it may not be quite as in depth as they may like - others can probably speak better to this than myself. A highly recommended book, and an easier read that you might think. I would highly recommend this book - if only other subjects had good review books/light references such as this.

This handbook provides a great general summary on major peds heme/onc topics for both pediatric residents and fellows. It provides a quick general reference with significant important details. I would recommend this to any pediatrician or health care professional interested in peds heme/onc.

In my residency program we are required to do two Hem/Onc months, one of which is during intern year. Having never done Heme/Onc before this book was an absolute life saver. I read it from beginning to end during my month and always read up on new admissions prior to having to present to the attending or prior to rounds. Ultimately many of the "pimp" questions I was asked, I was able to answer from having read chapters in this book. I learned a ton, easy to read. Just the right amount of detail.
