Derek S. Wheeler, Hector R. Wong, Thomas P. Shanley The Respiratory Tract in Pediatric Critical Illness and Injury Published: 2008-12-12 | ISBN: 1848009240 | 268 pages The field of critical care medicine is in the midst of a dramatic change. Technological and scientific advances during the last decade have resulted in a fundamental change in the way we view disease processes, such as sepsis, shock, acute lung injury, and traumatic brain injury. Pediatric intensivists have been both witness to and active participants in bringing about these changes and it is imperative that all physicians caring for critically ill children in this new era have a thorough understanding of the applicability of these modern developments to the care of patients at the bedside and to keep up with the rapidly evolving field of critical care medicine. The respiratory system is unique in that it is constantly exposed to a barrage of foreign substances from both the internal and external environment. Many diseases affect the pediatric respiratory system, a large number of whom are not associated with acute respiratory failure. Nevertheless, these constitute a major portion of the practice of pediatric critical care medicine and can account for significant morbidity and mortality. The Respiratory Tract in Pediatric Critical Illness and Injury has been written by an international panel of experts to provide an in-depth review of respiratory disease in the critically ill or injured child. This book is therefore an ideal reference for all involved in the management of the pediatric critically ill patient, from physicians, residents and fellows in critical care, pulmonology, and cardiology, and pediatricians to specialist nurses and support personnel on the pediatric intensive care unit and all medical professionals who are involved in the management of these patients.
The Pediatric Labeling Information Database is a one-stop resource. You can search for information by the product’s commercial or chemical name, or by the condition for which it was studied. FDA's Office of Pediatric Therapeutics (OPT), which focuses on safety, scientific, and ethical issues that arise in pediatric clinical trials or after products are approved for use in children, developed the tool in collaboration with another branch of the agency, the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research. http://www.accessdata.fda.gov/scripts/sda/sdNavigation.cfm?sd=labelingdatabase OPT also maintains a Safety Reporting page with information on products that have been tied to safety problems that specifically relate to children. This page lists products that have been the subject of an adverse event report presented to FDA’s Pediatric Advisory Committee, a group of outside experts that advises the agency on pediatric treatments, research and labeling. (An adverse event is any undesirable experience associated with a medical product.) The committee’s recommendation is also given if further actions were necessary to ensure safe use of the product in children. http://www.fda.gov/ScienceResearch/SpecialTopics/PediatricTherapeuticsResearch/ucm123229.htm

"ABC of the First Year" English | 2009-01-27 | ISBN: 1405217574 | 136 pages
This well-established book gives clear guidance on normal development and how to diagnose and manage illness in newborn infants and babies. The sixth edition of the ABC of the First Year has been fully revised and updated to reflect the introduction of National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence guidelines, the reduction in universal screening and the increasing care of the newborn provided by family practitioners and midwives. There are new sections on the recognition and prevention of obesity, which is an increasing problem.
The reduction in universal screening has resulted in parents requesting advice about their child's development at a variety of ages. A Development Chart shows the age-related normal range in different abilities and activities and will enable family doctors, at a glance, to determine whether a parent should be reassured that an infant is normal or needs further assessment. The inclusion of useful links and addresses of resources and organisations helps make the new edition of the ABC of the First Year an invaluable resource for GPs, midwives, paediatric nurses, health visitors and medical students, and an ideal companion to Bernard Valman's ABC of One to Seven.

"Chronic Disorders in Children and Adolescents" ISBN 10: 1441997636 | 2011 | 295 pages
There has been a significant increase in the prevalence of certain chronic disorders among children and adolescents. For example, health experts warn of an epidemic of diabetes mellitus due to an increase in the sedentary life style and poor nutrition of children. There are many questions still to be addressed in the study of chronic disorders among children and adolescents.What are the risk factors associated with chronic diseases in these populations?What are the major complications that contribute to disability and increased health care utilization and costs? What impact do chronic diseases have on the psychosocial development? What are the most effective diagnostic, treatment,and rehabilitation strategies? How can patient education and self-management activities be improved to help children and adolescents improve compliance with treatment regimens? How can parents and other family members become more involved in assessment and management? In what ways can peers, schools,religious institutions, and other organizations help children and adolescent scope with their chronic disease? This book addresses these questions by focusing on how eight chronic disorders affect health care utilization, costs, coping, and health outcomes in children and adolescents.Research studies are used to illustrate wide range of topics from the epidemiology of chronic diseases in children and adolescents, health care utilization and costs, to treatment outcomes, disability, and family processes.Case studies from a clinical psychologist’s private practice are used to clarify major psychosocial issues underlying chronic diseases in these populations. Chapter One analyzes the epidemiology of eight chronic conditions in children and adolescents. Data on the prevalence of diseases and associated risk factors are stressed in this chapter. Health care planners can use these analyses to improve primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention through more effective uses of health care resources. Chapter Two examines the latest information on health care utilization and costs for children and adolescents that can point to a more efficient means of reducing the rising health care costs associated with the treatment of chronic diseases. In the remaining chapters, the eight chronic diseases are evaluated in terms of five major issues. First, the latest trends in complications associated with each chronic condition are explored. Second, the impact of each disease on disability and psychosocial development of children and adolescents are analyzed. Third, recent research findings on diagnosis,treatment, and rehabilitation strategies are discussed. Fourth, new trends in patient education and self-management are presented. Fifth, each chapter will assess the role of family, peers, schools, and other organizations in helping children and adolescents cope with their chronic disorders. Dr. Mark L. Goldstein, a clinical psychologist, reviews the literature and uses composite case studies from his practice to illustrate the impact of these trends on how children and adolescents manage chronic disease. The information in this book will be relevant to a wide range of professionals and students in the fields of pediatrics, medicine, nursing, public health, mental health, social work,education, health administration, health policy, and social sciences.
