About this book

​​ This book describes key knowledge concepts, skills and up-to-date algorithms pertaining to common emergencies that can take place in a pediatric office, including: seizures, anaphylaxis and shock, and diabetic ketoacidosis.   The authors supported by peer review from top specialists in Pediatric Emergency Medicine at the Baylor College of Medicine offer the first comprehensive educational resource on pediatric office emergency preparedness devoted exclusively to the practicing primary care health care provider and his/her team. During emergencies, providers and their staff are called on to work efficiently as a “code-team” which is a source of considerable apprehension for many primary care pediatricians. This unique reference guide contains a wealth of information and resources in a compact and practical form. It presents the most important knowledge, skills, office resources and team interactions required by practitioners to successfully treat pediatric emergencies in the office.
