The MassGeneral Hospital for Children Handbook of Pediatric Global Health is a concise resource for the ever-increasing number of health professionals involved in global health, many of whom spend a few weeks to months or even years providing medical care in resource-poor countries.  This Handbook provides practical, evidence-based, hands-on guidance for managing and preventing childhood illnesses when resources are limited in low- and middle-income countries.  It also offers a setting-specific understanding and management approaches to the major causes of childhood mortality, including pneumonia, diarrhea, birth asphyxia, complications of preterm birth, and neonatal sepsis.  The Handbook provides an overview of childhood mortality, health systems, and the various stakeholders that play a role in the global health arena, and also contains chapters focusing on adolescents who are increasingly recognized as a unique population in whom interventions can go a long way in bothconsolidating the gains made in childhood and preventing adult disease.  Finally, key topics in non-communicable diseases are covered, including trauma and injuries, pediatric mental health, child and adolescent rights, and oral health.  Not meant solely for pediatricians, the Handbook is designed for generalists, specialists, doctors, nurses, other health care workers, and those in training.  An indispensable reference for health professionals overseas, the Handbook will also be a useful addition and resource for academic centers and universities in industrialized nations that are creating courses for trainees who will do clinical electives abroad during their training.

In the last ten years the pediatric neurosurgeon has witnessed a real revolution in the diagnosis and treatment of pediatric hydrocephalus, the most frequently encountered condition in everyday clinical practice. The evolution of MRI and the advent of neuroendoscopic surgery have resuscitated the interest in the classification, etiology and pathophysiology of hydrocephalus. The book offers an updated overview on the recent progress in this field, and a new approach to hydrocephalus: the reader will find in it a modern and new presentation of an old disease, where genetics, endoscopy, cost-effectiveness analyses and many other aspects of the various therapies are extensively discussed. The volume will be useful not only for neurosurgeons, but for all specialists interested in the various aspects of hydrocephalus: pediatricians, radiologists, endocrinologists, pathologists and geneticists.

Moffet's Pediatric Infectious Diseases: A Problem-Oriented Approach (Paperback)

By (author): Randall G. Fisher MD, Thomas G. Boyce MD MPH

Unlike many texts, which are organized by disease or pathogen, this unique resource presents a problem-oriented approach to the diagnosis and management of infectious diseases in children.

All chapters are organized by anatomic syndrome and guide you through each step in the management process from classifying the patient's illness to recognizing life-threatening emergencies, developing a logical differential diagnosis, pinpointing the disease, and treating the patient.

All the features you've come to trust...

  • Patient-oriented approach helps you focus on the patient rather than the pathogen, and offers a complete review of the diagnostic and treatment process.
  • Step-by-step guidelines take you logically from evaluation and work-up to diagnosis and therapeutic decision-making.
  • Expert authors combine the scientific integrity and practicality established by Dr. Moffet, with the latest advances and their own authoritative views.

Plus a wealth of NEW MATERIAL...

  • More comprehensive coverage includes greater detail in all subject areas, as well as new material on pathogens identified since the last edition—including SARS-coronavirus, hantavirus, human metapneumovirus, West Nile virus, and potential agents of bioterrorism.
  • More treatment-centered approach helps you focus on the therapeutic process—from diagnostic evaluation and testing to treatment selection.
  • All chapters have been extensively revised and updated, and two new chapters have been added addressing HIV Infection and AIDS, and Congenital Immune Deficiency Syndromes.

Discover a patient-centered approach to pediatric infectious disease management. Order your copy of Moffet's Pediatric Infectious Diseases, Fourth Edition today!
