Written specifically for medical students
Easy Paeds is structured in a systems-based fashion, with additional chapters on subjects such as history and examination, development, genetics, emergencies and surgery. The material is presented logically with presentations, clinical findings, investigations and management options, and useful boxes covering differential diagnoses, causes and complications are also included to complete the picture. Clinical photographs and illustrative diagrams are provided throughout to help the student visualise what they are reading about, and the book is enhanced by a companion website, which contains OSCE-style clinical scenarios and MCQs for all the body systems, so the reader can test what they have learned. Presented in an easy-to-remember style, Easy Paeds gives the medical student everything they need to succeed in their paediatrics modules, without bombarding them with excess knowledge that will not be covered in their exams.
