The book "Pediatric Emergency Medicine Tutorial" focuses specifically on the emergency paediatrics of developed countries. Emergency medicine also includes the ability to take decisions quickly and accurately in life-threatening pediatric emergencies. This book will be a blessing to medical students, because it is not always easy to translate because prescribe the procedures from books tailored for developing countries. This book includes the in-depth examples of the fundamental causes of illness and pathophysiology, which will help the reader understand what is occurring with a patient in a 'back to basics' way and aid with making differential diagnosis. Hopefully books like this will form part of the armamentaria of realistic support for emergency frontline staff in the fight to reduce global infant mortality. This book also includes photos detailing the emergency response procedures and useful tips. Perhaps notably, this book includes evidence-based lessons from our patients themselves.

Book Review:

Following significant developments in pediatric emergency medicine, evacuation of patients and critical care facilities, the scope of these skills and resources in many areas of the developed world is expanding. Even countries like India, where this manual originates, state-of-the-art medical facilities do exist. Yet basic emergency response and resuscitation skills and procedures still play second fiddle to the whiz bang of modern technologies in ICUs. Most specifically, the fight for life and successful clinical results is often fought and, most frequently, overlooked in the emergency departments or "casualty" sections of local hospitals away from the large metropolises. 

The Pediatric Emergency Medicine Course (PEMC) publisher and editors as well as the accompanying course manual are looking to meet a growing need. PEMC is geared towards educating workers at hospitals with insufficient services in emergency departments. A textbook like this is a helpful and much-needed practical guide for identifying and treating the seriously sick or disabled infant presented in extremis at first. The PEMC manual is a detailed reference guide with 12 pages covering a broad variety of subjects from serious disease ABCD to envenomation, trauma, toxicity, and environmental damage. The text is clear and full of sections which are clinically focused. Call out boxes attract attention to growing traps and surgical pearls. Many chapters include a "protocol" or algorithm to assist the reader in addressing the concepts of core management. Every chapter ends with illustrated "key points" and "basic mistakes."

 The most interesting and noteworthy feature of this manual is the impressive use of color images to clearly illustrate to the reader the points covered in the document. Each chapter is interspersed vividly with photographs of actual emergency-care patients. The Pediatric Assessment Triangle has been updated to make it as an assessment method even more practical and stable. If there's one critique I 'd raise at this otherwise outstanding textbook, it's the lack of antimicrobial therapy focus and the need to implement it. This problem is especially critical when the manual approaches emergency rooms in countries where life-threatening diseases are the most common source of extremis patients. 

This manual should be regarded as an invaluable guide and tool for physicians who care for critically ill children, particularly in developing countries. The basic principles and method of the manual can be readily translated and implemented across boundaries in action into any resource-limited environment, not just for the Indian subcontinent. This manual is genuinely a work of love and devotion on the part of the author, Dr. Santhanam, and her colleagues. 

Most of those physicians practice in a pediatric emergency room in Chennai , India, which has about 750,000 patients each year. They have transformed their insight and wealth of expertise acquired from this clinical environment into a well-executed, richly illustrated and simply excellent practical textbook that will support an worldwide group of parents in delivering just-in-time treatment to seriously sick and disabled children upon presentation to an emergency department. It will be extremely helpful and inspiring to see scientifically based texts such as this one and the Critical Care Aid Pediatric Fundamentals Manual being readily accessible and embraced as "go-to" guides in accident and emergency rooms throughout developed world.
