Designed to accompany Nelson Textbook of Pediatrics and Nelson Essentials of Pediatrics, Pediatric Decision-Making Strategies is a concise, user-friendly reference uses a unique algorithmic approach to facilitate diagnosis, testing, basic treatment of common pediatric disorders. For any given symptom, an algorithm guides the reader through the appropriate investigative procedures and lab tests to reach definitive diagnoses. An updated format that enhances usability makes this medical reference book a must-have for medical students, residents, and practitioners treating pediatric patients.
I would recommend it for students because it demonstrates a way of thinking about medicine that is useful in paediatrics and in all other specialties. I would also recommend it to junior doctors working in an assessment unit or emergency department; a quick glance at an algorithm before seeing a patient is much faster than leafing through pages of text.
