Review Quotes
"This is an excellent pediatric emergency medicine textbook disguised as a five-minute consult. It can be used as a reference in most urgent care clinic locations and, of course, in a pediatric ER setting. It is quite exhaustive and covers a most if not all of the possible scenarios routinely seen in pediatric ERs and clinics. The information is evidence based, lucid, and more than adequate to help readers with diagnostic and therapeutic decisions." ----------------------------------------------------------- Weighted Numerical Score: 88 - 3 Stars - Doody Enterprises, Inc. - Rajasekharan Warrier, MD(Ochsner for Children)

Bowker Data Service Summary
This title offers comprehensive, practical information on over 800 pediatric emergency issues in a fast-access two-page '5 Minute' outline format for easy emergency department use.
Main Description
Fleisher and Ludwig's 5-Minute Pediatric Emergency Medicine Consult offers comprehensive, practical information on over 800 pediatric emergency issues in a fast-access two-page "5 Minute" outline format for easy emergency department use. The book focuses specifically on pediatric emergency medicine and is utterly distinct from Rosen and Barkin's 5-Minute Emergency Medicine Consult, which focuses on adult management, with pediatrics as a distant "second." This book is also distinct from from The 5-Minute Pediatric Consult, which covers primary care issues but does not adequately address emergency concerns and management. Coverage includes clinical presentation, pre-hospital, diagnosis, treatment, disposition, ICD-10 coding, and pitfalls. Treatment recommendations are congruent with those of recognized, authoritative sources including the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American College of Emergency Medicine. The book includes pediatric medical, surgical, and environmental/poisoning emergencies, and contains reference information such as vital signs, resuscitation equipment sizes, and medication doses as well as instructions on common pediatric EM procedures.
