Part of the 100 Cases series, this volume on Paediatrics covers Respiratory, Cardiology, Endocrinology and diabetes, Gastroenterology, Nephrology, Infections, Dermatology, Haematology, Oncology, Bones and joints, Neurology, Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, and Neonatology.
The 100 Cases series provides a novel learning and revision tool that works by guiding the reader through each clinical case in a highly structured manner. Each scenario provides details of the patient's medical history and the key findings of a clinical examination, together with initial investigation results data for evaluation. Key questions then prompt the reader to evaluate the patient, and reach a decision regarding their condition and the possible treatment plan, while the answer pages reveal the processes a clinician goes through in such situations.
The volumes are designed with the student in mind, and include features to aid self-directed learning, clinical reasoning and problem-solving.
