 Cardiovascular, Pediatrics  Comments Off on Pediatric Arrhythmias and EKGs for the Health Care Provider
Jun 172018
 

This time-tested publication has successfully trained numerous pediatric nurses from a leading children’s hospital. Pediatric advanced practice registered nurses and clinical nurse specialists working in acute or critical care settings, as well as physician assistants and medical residents, need to understand the principles of accurate pediatric EKG interpretation and the appropriate follow-up steps necessary for the best patient care. With a total of 100 EKGs, rhythm strips, and interpretations, this comprehensive but concise text analyzes all levels of arrhythmias to allow pediatric health care providers to interpret normal and abnormal pediatric EKGs and rhythm strips with confidence.

This user-friendly, quick reference outlines the basic rules for pediatric arrhythmias and EKG interpretations using a multitude of different EKGs and rhythm strips and basic but critical figures and tables. With the use of a systematic checklist for standard evaluation, the text walks the reader through the essential signs that health care providers must learn to recognize when examining the EKGs and rhythm strips of their pediatric patients. This book culminates in a robust selection of 50 EKGs and additional rhythm strips for practice and a self-test on the material presented in the preceding chapters. The answers can be compared with the cardiologist’s interpretations for reinforcement of understanding and application.

Pediatric Arrhythmias and EKGs for the Health Care Provider teaches readers in a quick, at-a-glance approach:

To obtain an interpretable pediatric tracing
To implement a proper measurement method
To understand both normal and abnormal EKGs
To learn the quickest and most accurate QTc method
To follow an organized format for rhythm analysis
To systematically use tables, diagrams, figures, and graphs for interpretation
To interpret with confidence even very complicated tracings
To know which tracings need a pediatric cardiologist’s attention

Paediatric Clinical Examination Made Easy – 6th Edition (May 2017 Release)

 Clinical Skills, Pediatrics  Comments Off on Paediatric Clinical Examination Made Easy – 6th Edition (May 2017 Release)
Jun 172018
 

Fully revised, this is an updated new edition of a much-loved book which has built a reputation for pithy, entertaining good sense over the course of six editions. ‘Children are different. Paediatrics is much more than medicine miniaturised.’

From reviews of the previous edition:

‘All in all a very handy book for the student, the resident or other professionals working with children. I had a lot of fun reading it.’

‘The book is full of wonderful illustrations, and funny and profound advice with quotations, like the words of Sir Dominic Corrigan (1853): “The trouble with many doctors is not that they do not know enough but that they do not see enough”, or the advice to teach thy tongue to say” “I do not know” (Rabbi Moses Maimonides or Rambam, 1135-1204). I have used this book for my final medical year paediatrics exams, the DCH and the MRCP and it has been a great help. It reminds us of the most important and basic things – history and examination, and of course a friendly demeanour.’

  • Short, manageable chapters
  • Clinical examples of examination techniques
  • Very helpful tips and topics section
  • Clinical checklists
  • Simply illustrated
  • Updated throughout
  • New section of ‘questions of fives’ questions
  • Short glossary of Latin terms
