First Year First Aid


By (author): Michelle Fiddian

An empowering book for all new and expecting parents, covering emergency first aid in the first year of life. It gives easy-to-follow tips to remember for most accidents, as well as illnesses, so parents can be prepared for the most common emergencies that occur within the home. This book is an essential tool for every responsible parent! Knowing what to do in an emergency is a frightening topic, but this book is not scary. It will dispel myths and enlighten. This book is designed with parents in mind, written by a parent who has a background in extensive first aid training and first-hand experience as a mother. The anecdotes, quotes and practical advice, written in a light manner, will make this book a pleasure to read – and the perfect gift! Michelle Fiddian has 13 years of industry experience: 6 years as a call-taker at the Triple Zero (000) Ambulance Service, 2 years as a first aid trainer for major organisations such as St John Ambulance, and 5 years running Little Aid since she started it in 2008. Michelle’s previous experiences highlighted two problems: 1) even when first aid trained, people often don’t know how to deal with a paediatric situation. The most hysterical calls she received through Triple Zero were from parents of little ones. They were losing control and feeling helpless at a time that their child needed them most; 2) The first aid training available wasn’t relevant to babies and children. Michelle started Little Aid first aid courses to address these problems, and the training focus has three key elements: empowerment, flexibility and fun! First Year First Aid has been written to accompany quality first aid training and has exactly the same focus.

Pediatric Electrocardiography: An Algorithmic Approach to Interpretation


This book elucidates the process of reading electrocardiograms (ECGs) in children. It provides a structured, step-by-step guide for interpreting ECGS using algorithms, which allow clinicians to decipher the data within these tracings and establish differential diagnoses. The book also presents actual high-definition ECG tracings, which are annotated and highlighted to demonstrate the issues discussed. Topics include cellular electrophysiology changes and electrocardiography and disorders such as axis abnormalities, heart rate and rhythm disturbances, hypertrophy, conduction abnormalities, and fetal arrhythmias. Clinical scenarios with answers provide real-life examples of how pediatric patients present, their ECGs, and treatment methodology. Pediatric Electrocardiography: An Algorithmic Approach is a valuable resource for pediatricians, family medicine physicians, cardiologists, and medical students.

Pediatric Oncology (MD Anderson Cancer Care Series)


Childhood cancer was almost always fatal before 1970. Today, 80% of ch- dren diagnosed with cancer will survive at least 5 years; 70% will be cured. However, cancer continues to be the leading cause of nonaccident-related deaths in children. More children die each year from cancer than from c- tic ?brosis, diabetes, asthma, AIDS, and congenital abnormalities combined. Nine children die from cancer every school day. Despite the fact that pediatric cancers account for only a small p- centage of the total cancer burden, more effective therapies are needed to improve mortality rates in children. Therefore, our research priority must be the development of new agents and new therapies for childhood cancer. M. D. Anderson Cancer Center has been caring for children with c- cer since its doors opened over 60 years ago. This institution has been home to several research and clinical pioneers whose innovative work has in?uenced and shaped the practice of pediatric oncology throughout the world. Notably, Drs. Wataru W. Sutow, Donald Pinkel, and Norman Jaffe have been credited with introducing curative therapies for children with leukemia and solid tumors. Cancer treatment involves far more than administering chemoth- apy and surgically excising tumors. It requires a multidisciplinary – proach to patient management, particularly in the treatment of solid – mors, which pose the biggest challenge in cancer care today. Surgery and radiotherapy as well as radiographic and pathologic assessments of response are critical factors in the treatment of children with cancer.

The Neurobehavioral and Social-Emotional Development of Infants and Children (Norton Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology)


By (author): Ed Tronick

Internationally recognized as one of the premier researchers on child development, Ed Tronick has held notable teaching positions and conducted vital research for nearly 30 years.

Over the course of his esteemed career, he has received funding for hundreds of key studies in the US and abroad on normal and abnormal infant and child development?including his Mutual Regulation Model and Still-Face Paradigm, which revolutionized our understanding of infants’ emotional capacities and coping?all of which led to critical contributions in the field. Much of his work serves as the benchmark for how mental health clinicians think about biopsychosocial states of consciousness, the process of meaning making, and how and why we engage with others in the world.

Now, for the first time, Tronick has gathered together his most influential writings in a single, essential volume. Organized into five parts?(I) Neurobehavior, (II) Culture, (III) Infant Social-Emotional Interaction, (IV) Perturbations: Natural and Experimental, and (V) Dyadic Expansion of Consciousness and Meaning Making?this book represents his major ideas and studies regarding infant-adult interactions, developmental processes, and mutual regulation, carefully addressing such questions as:

  • What is a state of consciousness?
  • What are the developing infant’s capacities for neurobehavioral self-organization?
  • How are early infant-adult interactions organized?
  • How can we understand the nature of normal versus abnormal development?
  • How do self and mutual regulation relate to developmental processes?
  • Is meaning making purely a function of the brain, or is it in our bodies as well?

As a bonus, the book includes a DVD-ROM, with video clips of Tronick’s Still-Face Paradigm, an invaluable teaching aid.

Life in Crisis: The Ethical Journey of Doctors Without Borders


By (author): Peter Redfield

Life in Crisis tells the story of Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders or MSF) and its effort to ?save lives” on a global scale. Begun in 1971 as a French alternative to the Red Cross, the MSF has grown into an international institution with a reputation for outspoken protest as well as technical efficiency. It has also expanded beyond emergency response, providing for a wider range of endeavors, including AIDS care. Yet its seemingly simple ethical goal proves deeply complex in practice. MSF continually faces the problem of defining its own limits. Its minimalist form of care recalls the promise of state welfare, but without political resolution or a sense of well-being beyond health and survival. Lacking utopian certainty, the group struggles when the moral clarity of crisis fades. Nevertheless, it continues to take action and innovate. Its organizational history illustrates both the logic and the tensions of casting humanitarian medicine into a leading role in international affairs.

Work Discussion: Learning from Reflective Practice in Work with Children and Families (Tavistock, Clinic Series)


Work Discussionbrings together a combination of close observation of, and personal and interpersonal responses to, the minutiae of the work setting and its dynamics, both internal and external. Such a model depends on the development of hard-won capacities, and the descriptions offered here, both by students and by experienced staff, fully demonstrate the immense relevance of the approach, both to training and to a wide variety of work situations.

The book outlines the process of the method itself, followed by descriptions of a range of settings, both in Britain and abroad, in which that method has been successfully applied. The contributors draw on experiences across age, culture, and race in, for example, schools, hospitals, residential homes, in a prison, and in a refugee community. The final chapter explores the implications of work discussion for research and policy-making more generally. Many of the situations narrated here are extreme, whether in terms of disturbance or of vulnerability, but they offer moving insights into how effective the method can be and how truly impressive a developmental model it provides.
