Pediatric Anesthesia: A Problem-Based Learning Approach

a cura di Kirk Lalwani, Ira Todd Cohen

editore: Oxford University Press

pagine: 640

Linking existing knowledge to new knowledge by presenting it in the form of a case or a problem is a popular and effective educational approach resulting in better retention of the knowledge and improved ability to apply that knowledge to solve real problems. This problem-based learning (PBL) method was introduced into medical education at McMaster University in Ontario, Canada, in 1969. Since then it has been widely incorporated into secondary, undergraduate, and graduate education in a variety of disciplines worldwide. This new volume for the Anesthesiology Problem-Based Learning series reviews pediatric anesthesia utilizing the PBL approach. Each chapter deals with conditions and problems in pediatric anesthesia practice presented as a case stem with questions to encourage critical thinking, followed by an evidence-based discussion and multiple-choice questions for self-assessment. Cases were carefully selected to present a broad systems-based tour of commonly encountered clinical cases in pediatric anesthesia. The book can be used to review an upcoming clinical case or as a PBL tool. The 'Stem Case and Key Questions' and 'Discussion' sections can serve as the basis for interactive learning experiences for study groups or as a broad yet in-depth clinical review of the subspecialty for the individual learner. Self-assessment questions can be used as a measure of knowledge acquisition or simply as a question bank to prepare for examinations.

Textbook of Paediatric Emergency Medicine

Biswadev Mitra, Gary J. Browne
e altri

editore: ELSEVIER HEALTH SCIENCES

pagine: 688

It is now more than ten years since the publication of the first edition of Textbook of Paediatric Emergency Medicine and interest in this specialty continues to grow at a local and international level. Paediatric emergency medicine can be a challenging and difficult area for doctors. Children cannot always communicate their problems verbally, while parents are anxious and the possibility of a missed diagnosis is ever present. Although the principles in managing paediatric patients are the same as adults there are significant differences in patterns of illness and response. In addition, the therapies available vary widely between adult and paediatric practice. Textbook of Paediatric Emergency Medicine provides clear, concise and comprehensive coverage of all the major topics that present within paediatric emergency medicine. It offers a consensus approach to diagnosis and treatment, drawing on the latest evidence available. Short chapters with key point boxes allow for the quick and easy retrieval of information, essential when time is short. This Third Edition captures the major changes in guidelines across the specialty in the assessment and management of paediatric patients, whilst refining established approaches to practice. The text reviews both new technologies and the better application of older techniques which have led to changes in practice. There are significant updates to the sections on resuscitation and trauma, the clinical applications of bedside ultrasound, analgesia and sedation. There is also a new focus on the teaching and research sections.

Nutrizione artificiale in pediatria

Andrea Pession, Sergio Amarri
e altri

editore: Zanichelli

pagine: 480

La nutrizione è un capitolo fondamentale della pediatria che oggi, oltre ad occuparsi di crescita e sviluppo, è chiamata sempre più a rispondere alle esigenze nutrizionali personalizzate di soggetti in età evolutiva affetti da patologie croniche e complesse. Il libro è interamente dedicato alla nutrizione artificiale, enterale e parenterale, ovvero a quella procedura terapeutica atta a soddisfare i fabbisogni nutrizionali di pazienti in età pediatrica, altrimenti non in grado di alimentarsi per via naturale. Partendo dagli elementi fondamentali della nutrizione e della sua valutazione con particolare attenzione ai fabbisogni nutrizionali, il testo prosegue poi approfondendo il tema della nutrizione artificiale pediatrica in generale e nello specifico delle patologie e degli scenari medici e chirurgici che più spesso ne necessitano, senza tralasciare la realtà della terapia intensiva e alcuni aspetti emergenti. Un testo utile nella pratica quotidiana di studenti di medicina, medici in formazione, pediatri e altri specialisti coinvolti nell'assistenza pediatrica, chiamati ad affrontare il tema della malnutrizione.

Paediatric Intensive Care

editore: Oxford University Press

pagine: 896

One in 70 children are admitted to paediatric intensive care (PIC) at some time during childhood. Most paediatric junior doctors will rotate through PIC, and will be involved in organising acute intensive care for critically ill children. The range of children and their illnesses going through PIC is vast, making it a hugely diverse specialty. A critically ill child will end up there regardless of their underlying disease, and as a result consultants in PIC must be true generalists and need to acquire knowledge and skills in all areas of paediatrics, as well as acquiring significant knowledge of anaesthesia and surgery. From setting up the ventilator, to managing low cardiac output, Paediatric Intensive Care gives practical and realistic advice for children's doctors and nurses in intensive care. Information is presented in easily-accessible '5 minute chunks' to enable you to quickly get the answers you need, with extensive cross-referencing ensuring that different aspects of a particular clinical problem are fully covered. With detailed answers to specific problems and expert guidance on how to manage the complex issues faced in PIC, this handbook is an indispensible guide for all those who provide care to sick children.

Manual of Pediatric Anesthesia

Charles J. Cote, David J. Steward
e altri

editore: Springer International Publishing AG

pagine: 670

Authored by three world experts, this is a clinically focused book on pediatric anesthesia. "The Manual", as it is known, has long dominated the market for a succinct and practical resource on administering anesthesia to children and is used by residents, general anesthesiologists, nurse anesthetists, and pediatric anesthesiologists. This new edition retains the basic structure of the book and is updated throughout. Text-heavy in the current edition, the Seventh Edition features the addition of figures to chapters where they are especially helpful (eg, the chapter on cardiovascular surgery and cardiac procedures) and makes greater use of headings to break up the text and guide reading. From reviews of the Sixth Edition:"This is an extremely well written book that I would recommend highly to anyone involved in anaesthetizing children. It is comprehensive enough to provide an excellent reference for trainees and general anaesthetists who occasionally deal with paediatric cases, while at the same time giving valuable supplemental information for paediatric anaesthetists encountering an unusual procedure or condition. In short, this is a book that would make a welcome addition to any anaesthetist's mobile library." --Anaesthesia
