An essential bedside tool.
Unlike adult gastroenterology, pediatric gastroenterology is characterized by developmental disorders; the approach to the same disease condition may therefore be widely different, and there is an increasing need from pediatric gastroenterologists and pediatricians for easy diagnostic tools. Algorithms provide a logical, concise and cost-effective approach to medical reasoning and help avoid excessive unnecessary procedures and testing.
Practical Algorithms in Pediatric Gastroenterology is a simple, bedside pragmatic text which classifies common clinical symptoms and signs, laboratory abnormalities and issues of management in the expanding field of pediatric gastroenterology as presented in daily practice.
Written by leading experts in the field of pediatric gastroenterology and surrounding fields, this book is aimed at an audience of general and family practitioners, pediatricians and trainees who are not exposed on a day-to-day basis to pediatric gastroenterology problems.
