Pediatric Laboratory Medicine

A complete full-color guide to medical laboratory test selection and test result interpretation for disorders and diagnoses specific to pediatric and neonatal populations.

Laboratory medicine practiced at a pediatric institution has unique characteristics specific to infants and children, who differ both metabolically and biochemically from adults.  Many aspects of laboratory medicine are affected by these differences, from basic, day-to-day operational issues through test selection for pediatric-specific disorders. However, most references in laboratory medicine merely touch upon pediatrics – and offer little if any coverage of variations in testing and results for different age groups, or the many diseases and disorders most common in infants and children. Pediatric Laboratory Medicine is specifically written to fill this critical void in the literature.

Now, for the first time, all important reference material concerning pediatric laboratory medicine is available in one convenient, up-to-date resource. Pediatric Laboratory Medicine teaches the effective operation of a pediatric clinical operation, and also provides guidelines for teaching trainees. This unique text delivers the how-to instruction necessary to ensure proper handling and testing of pediatric specimens to ensure accurate diagnosis. Valuable learning aids include learning objectives, end-of-chapter review questions, and references for further study.

Written by experienced clinicians, the book’s seventeen chapters cover virtually every important topic – from daily issues in the practice of pediatric laboratory medicine to common tests and considerations to inborn errors of metabolism and therapeutic drug monitoring. Enhanced by numerous tables and high-quality full-color images, this authoritative resource delivers everything necessary for effective pediatric laboratory medicine training and practice.  

Comprehensive Pediatric Hospital Medicine, 2/E

The second edition of the foundational textbook in pediatric hospital medicine, Comprehensive Pediatric Hospital Medicine, has published on AccessPediatrics. Astute librarians may associate this title with Elsevier, as they published the first edition, but the rights were transferred to McGraw-Hill and this is entirely new content for AccessPediatrics. Pediatric hospital medicine, sometimes referred to as inpatient pediatrics, is one of the fastest growing fields in pediatrics and officially recognized as a pediatric subspecialty in 2016 by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS). There are now more than 200 2-year pediatric hospitalist fellowship programs at hospitals of all sizes throughout the US and Canada, and a separate board examination will be offered by the American Board of Pediatrics in 2019.

Pediatric hospital medicine (PHM) has largely followed the path cut by hospital medicine over the past few decades, and as such concentrates on the general medical care of hospitalized infants, children, and adolescents. Practitioners in PHM can come from several disciplines, including pediatrics, family medicine, and internal medicine, and can have various credentials, including MD, DO, ARNP, or PA. Pediatrics hospitalists care for hospitalized children in a variety of settings, including the pediatric ward, newborn nursery, neonatal and pediatric intensive care units, and emergency department. PHM is also among the most innovative pediatric subspecialties with an emphasis on evidence-based medicine and improving the quality, value, and outcomes of pediatric patient care.

As its name implies, the textbook is a comprehensive overview of the entire practice of PHM and is edited and written by academic and clinical leaders in the field. With 199 chapters, the book adds a wealth of content to AccessPediatrics, covering common presenting signs and symptoms, a systems-based approach to diagnosis, and a separate section on commonly performed procedures. There is also a section on organizational and administrative topics in PHM, including infection control, communications and discharge planning, medicolegal and ethical issues, and models of care. The addition of this book along with the currently available Philadelphia Guide: Inpatient Pediatrics, should be a great selling point for expanding the subscriber base of APD into more children's and community hospitals.

Diagnostic Imaging of Infants and Children
