The Unofficial Guide to Paediatrics

All doctors will encounter children more than once during their careers; of course, this goes without saying for paediatricians, and in primary care approximately 25 per cent of consultations involve children. Many other specialities encompass paediatric patients – including general surgery, ENT and emergency medicine. It is therefore vital that all medical students and junior doctors have a core grounding in the fundamentals of paediatrics.

The Unofficial Guide to Paediatrics is unique in that it is the only text that covers core subject summaries, examination practice, practical skills, career opportunities and clinical cases all in one place. It does this through 1000+ colour images and illustrations, 200+ multiple-choice questions, and 60+ real life clinical cases to bring paediatrics to life. The contributors range from Professors of Paediatrics, through medical students, teachers and nurses, to midwives – meaning the book has influences from a truly multidisciplinary team at all stages of training.

This book is primarily aimed at medical students, its 24 fully illustrated chapters covering a wide range of common and important paediatric pathologies (in line with the national Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health undergraduate curriculum).

Each disease uses a common framework - definition, aetiology and clinical features - and progresses through investigations, differential diagnoses, management, complications, and finally prognosis.

The unique collection of core clinical content, practical skills, clinical cases and examination skills provided is equally valuable for junior doctors and paediatric trainees. Nurses, advanced nurse practitioners, physician associates and allied healthcare professionals will also find the content and approach useful as a day-to-day reference.
