More than 1,000 high-quality clinical images facilitate accurate visual diagnosis in pediatric emergencies
“…an excellent addition for any emergency department that has the privilege to care for children…it will definitely help emergency physicians provide better care to children.” – Annals of Emergency Medicine (reviewing earlier edition)
Pediatric patients can represent as much as 35% of all emergency department visits. This atlas comes to the rescue of harried EM clinicians by providing a quick-access resource packed with visual clues to injuries and illnesses presenting in emergency situations in patients ranging from infancy through adolescence. Doctor Shah has compiled an extraordinary collection of clinical photographs and imaging studies, and combined them with practical, easily retrievable text. This combination is designed to expedite diagnosis as well as guide the clinician to the appropriate management of pediatric trauma and disease.
• Market: Emergency physicians (38,000), pediatricians (80,000)
• Includes numerous tables, figures, and radiographs
• Organized by organ system and then by problem
• 1-4 images per topic, with brief text detailing “need to know” information for each clinical problem
This app is very intuitive and easy to navigate, allowing you to browse the contents or search for topics. The powerful search tool gives you word suggestions that appear in the text as you type, so it is lightning fast and helps with spelling those long medical terms. The search tool also keeps a recent history of past search terms so you can go back to a previous search result very easily. You have the ability to create notes and bookmarks separately for text, images and tables to enhance your learning. You can also change the text size for easier reading.
After the app has been downloaded, no internet connection is needed to retrieve the content of the app. All of the text and images are available to you on your device anytime, anywhere, and lightning fast. This app is also automatically optimized for whatever size device you are currently using, either phone or tablet.
