Based on key content from Red Book®, Red Book® Atlas of Pediatric Infectious Diseases is a useful quick reference and innovative pictorial resource that provides essential information and recommendations for diagnosing and treating more than 75 pediatric conditions. It streamlines disease recognition and clinical decision-making with more than 500 full-color images adjacent to concise diagnostic and treatment guidelines. Essential information on each condition is presented in the precise sequence needed in the clinical setting—clinical manifestations, etiology, epidemiology, incubation period, diagnostic tests, and treatment.
The text is organized into short topics allowing readers to rapidly access authoritative information on specific clinical problems. Each topic refers to basic physiological principles and provides up-to-date treatment advice supported by references to the most vital literature. Where international differences exist in clinical practice, authors cover alternative views. Key messages summarise each topic in order to aid quick review and decision making.
