Cambridge Clinical Manual of Emergency Pediatrics Sixth Edition eBook 2018 In this sixth edition of the Clinical Manual of Emergency Pediatrics, we have endeavored to remain true to our original intention: to provide a dependable, comprehensive, portable handbook that offers concise advice regarding the approach to the majority of conditions seen in a pediatric emergency department. For each topic, we have included essential points and priorities for diagnosis, management, and follow-up care, as well as indications for hospitalization and a bibliography to guide further reading. There has been a significant paradigm shift in the care of sick and injured children.

Many patients now receive acute care in primary care offices and free-standing urgicenters, which may lack the full range of resources that are available in the emergency department setting. Ill children are hospitalized less often, and they tend to be discharged back to their primary care providers sooner than ever before. In addition, increasing numbers of chronically and medically fragile children are receiving care in ambulatory sites. As a result of these changing practices, physicians working in non-emergency settings, such as private offices and clinics, may be faced with potential, or real, pediatric emergencies. Now, more than ever, these caregivers, as well as emergency physicians, can benefit from a practical hand book which provides a summary of the myriad acute conditions that may be encountered, along with a clear guide as to how to differentiate among them.

Since the publication of the first edition of this manual, online and portable resources
have become readily available. However, many are not geared to pediatric conditions or presentations. It is our observation that there is a lack of detail, particularly when discussing differential diagnoses. Our hope is that this manual, which gathers the necessary facts and management recommendations in a user-friendly, easily accessible format, will facilitate decision-making and safe care.
In the sixth edition, we have maintained the book’s unique features while making many
changes that increase its utility. Because the scope of childhood illnesses and injuries seen in acute care settings is constantly increasing, we have revised and updated every chapter.

We have added new sections on anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis, bedside ultrasound, commercial sexual exploitation of children, fever of unknown origin, newer “designer” drugs of abuse, ovarian emergencies, the returned traveler, and the “ouchless” emergency department.

The endocrinology, gastroenterology, infectious diseases, ingestions, and neu-
rology sections have been completely revised and updated.
