      Description

      Based on the experience gained from training house officers and under-graduates in the field of PEM, over the past 2 decades, this pocket manual shows how to save life in simple systematic steps in the absence of trained emergency physicians.  An innovative case record has been devised which aids in assessment, intervention and documentation during resuscitation. The pediatric assessment triangle has been simplified to assist decision making. A color atlas, shows how to mask ventilate, introduce a laryngeal mask airway (LMA) or secure intraosseous access. In addition, information has been added about common drugs used in the out patient department, prophylaxis following exposure, procedures, approach to fever and how to prepare one-self when shifting a child for radiology.
