Description

You've read your textbook and your course notes. Now you need to apply your knowledge to real life clinical situations.

The problem-solving approach of Core Clinical Cases guides you to think of the patient as a whole, rather than as a sequence of unconnected symptoms. With its emphasis on everyday practice strongly linked to underlying theory, the series integrates your knowledge with the realities of managing clinical problems, and provides a basis for developing sound analytical and confident decision-making skills.

The core areas of undergraduate study are covered in a logical sequence of learning activities: the same questions are asked of each clinical case, followed by detailed explanatory answers. Related OSCE counselling cases, with related questions and answers, also feature in each section.

Key concepts and important information are highlighted, and the reader-friendly layout reflects exactly the type of question you will encounter, making these volumes the perfect revision aid for all types of case-based examination.

The Paediatrics volume, fully revised and updated in this third edition, focuses on the following topics:

* Growth problems * Developmental delay * Failure to thrive * Acute severe illness * Acute and chronic fever * Respiratory problems * Fits, faints and funny turns * Headache * Diarrhoea and vomiting * Abdominal pain * Jaundice * Rashes * Poisoning * Emotional and behavioural problems

Volumes in the Core Clinical Cases series remain absolutely invaluable in the run up to clinical, written or OSCE examinations, and ideal course companions for all undergraduate medical students at various stages in their clinical training.
