Pediatrics: A Primary Care Approach
This is a well-organized discussion of the most common issues, both clinical and psychosocial, of general pediatrics. The book covers a wide scope of topics from those as benign as thumb-sucking to those as devastating as HIV and childhood cancer. A case history opens each chapter to set the stage for a practical discussion of primary care pediatrics. This state-of-the-art reference emphasizes concepts in health promotion, illness prevention, and family and community participation. The book includes well-child care for normal children and adolescents. It also discusses premature infants, and children with specific needs such as patients with Down's Syndrome. Signs and symptoms are presented by body system in a logical approach.
