Now in its second edition, this text focuses exclusively on the management of hospitalized pediatric patients from admission to discharge.
This is an excellent resource for residency programs, hospitalist fellowships, and continuing education for physicians whose practice includes the management of hospitalized newborns and children. Because pediatric hospital care is provided by a wide variety of healthcare professionals and in many different hospital settings, this text provides a framework for unified management and effective and efficient care. This edition includes new sections on emergency medicine and psychiatric hospitalization and expanded coverage of management of children with complex and chronic conditions.
