Prepared by residents and attending physicians at Massachusetts General Hospital for Children, Pocket Pediatrics follows the style of Pocket Medicine, one of the best-selling references for medical students, interns, and residents. This pocket-sized looseleaf can be used on the wards and by candidates reviewing for pediatric board exams. In bulleted lists, tables, and algorithms, Pocket Pediatrics provides key clinical information about common pediatric problems in cardiology, pulmonology, gastroenterology, nephrology, hematology-oncology, infectious diseases, endocrinology, rheumatology, and neurology as well as on the well patient and the patient in the ICU. The six-ring binder resembles the familiar pocket brain notebook that most students and interns carry and allows users to add notes. =Table Of Contents Contributors Foreword Preface Abbreviations PRIMARY CARE AND ADOLESCENT MEDICINE Breastfeeding Cow's Milk Protein Allergy Reflux Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) Skull Deformities Neonatal Hyperbilirubinemia Colic Normal Growth Failure to Thrive Overweight and Obesity Developmental Milestones Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) Immunizations Lead Screening and Toxicity Pap Smears Contraception Eating Disorders Engaging Adolescents and Building on their Strengths EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT Rapid Evaluation and Management of Common Pediatric Emergencies Stridor Anaphylaxis Apparent Life-threatening Event (ALTE) Fever without an Identified Source in Infants and Children Appendicitis Intussusception Burns Carbon Monoxide Inhalation Trauma Overview Head Trauma Foreign Bodies Aspiration and Ingestion The Crying Infant Emergent Orthopedic Issues Toxicology ALLERGY AND IMMUNOLOGY Food Allergy Atopic Dermatitis Drug Allergy Urticaria and Angioedema Immune Deficiencies B-cell Deficiency (Humoral) T-cell Deficiencies (Cellular Immunity) Combined Immune Deficiencies Complement Deficiencies Phagocytic Disorders CARDIOLOGY Interpretation Heart Murmurs Syncope Chest Pain Cyanotic Child Congenital Heart Disease Essential Hypertension Pediatric Dysrhythmias Pericarditis and Pericardial Effusion Cardiomyopathies (CM) Congestive Heart Failure ENDOCRINOLOGY Diabetes Mellitus Diabetes Mellitus Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus Type 2 Diabetic Ketoacidosis Hypoglycemia Hyperthyroidism Hypothyroidism Adrenal Insufficiency (AI) Hypopituitarism Ambiguous Genitalia Precocious Puberty Delayed Puberty Short Stature Amenorrhea Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) FLUIDS AND ELECTROLYTES Body and Parenteral Fluids Dehydration and Rehydration Hyponatremia Hypernatremia Hypokalemia Hyperkalemia Hypocalcemia Hypercalcemia Hypomagnesemia/Hypermagnesemia Hypophosphatemia/Hyperphosphatemia Acid Base Disorders Metabolic Acidosis Metabolic Alkalosis Respiratory Acidosis and Alkalosis GASTROENTEROLOGY Acute Abdominal Pain Peptic Ulcer Disease (PUD) Vomiting Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) Pyloric Stenosis Gastrointestinal Bleeding Acute Diarrhea Chronic Diarrhea Celiac Disease Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) Jaundice Abnormal Liver Function Tests Hepatitis Biliary Tract Disease Acute Pancreatitis Chronic Pancreatitis HEMATOLOGY Anemia Hemoglobinopathies Platelet Disorders Coagulation Bone Marrow Failure ONCOLOGY Lymphadenopathy in the Pediatric Patient Pediatric Oncologic Emergencies Neutropenia in the Pediatric Patient Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia Acute Myelogenous Leukemia Hodgkin Lymphoma Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma Transfusions Pediatric Brain Tumors Abbreviated Table of Contents
