Algorithms in Pediatrics 1st Edition 2017


• The concise and user-friendly book uses a unique algorithm-based approach to various pediatric problems 
• Every chapter is supplemented by algorithms which address problems affecting neonates, children, and adolescents 
• Each algorithms utilizes a concise, step-by-step approach based upon clues from the history, physical examination, and laboratory studies 
• The book has been divided into various sections covering all board pediatric specialities and sub-specialities such as neonatology, cardiology, haematology, neurology, pulmonology, immunization, gastroenterology, endocrinology, and ophthalmology 
• Each section has chapters covering common problems seen in everyday clinical practice with brief introduction followed by clinical evaluation, diagnosis, treatment, and management along with the algorithm 
• Each chapter is also supplemented by clinical pearls highlighting important aspects related to management and key points at the end summarizing the discussion 
• Written by experts having extensive research and clinical experience.

In summary, a must read book with information that is useful in everyday clinical practice for pediatricians, physicians, postgraduate students, and nurse practitioners.

Algorithms in Pediatrics have gone through all these laborious processes and have come out as an exclusive book for pediatricians, giving instant guidelines for treatment, bringing uniformity in management, and training minds for protocolized thinking. With each protocol, the book provides concise, precise, and up-to-date information which shall help
standardize care in pediatric practice. When a practitioner is confronted with a clinical problem, he can rarely turn to a textbook for help. What he needs at that time is not a recounting of a long list of differential diagnosis, but practical guidelines as to how to arrive at a particular diagnosis and how to proceed further.
This book on algorithms intends to enable the pediatrician to recognize many disorders in a simplified manner and give practical suggestions in their management, a learning experience in a structured manner.To put it in the words of Henry David Thoreau, “Our lives are frittered away by detail; simplify, simplify”.Practicing pediatricians are often faced with clinical problems for which they have been rather inadequately trained during their medical curriculum. Textbooks published from the medically advanced countries do not focus enough attention on the prevailing problems and circumstances in the developing countries such as India.


The algorithms in this book have been formed keeping in mind the situations prevailing in India, especially the constraints under which the clinicians here have to practice. The main emphasis has been to provide clear-cut guidelines as to how to make a diagnosis on clinical grounds with minimal investigations and to choose the most rational therapy.Although, prepared specifically to meet the needs of practicing doctors or those who intend to practice in near future,
even pediatric residents would find the book extremely useful while preparing for their viva voce at the diploma or MD exams. The book covers most of those aspects which are practically never taught in the curriculum but are nevertheless expected to be known by pediatric postgraduates. It will also assist the students, house officers, and clinicians in the
evaluation of common pediatric signs and symptoms in clinical practice.With the help of history, focused examination, and minimum investigations, pediatricians in office practice can reach a
working diagnosis and lay down immediate priorities in management. There is rarely a single acceptable approach to any given problem, and not all diagnoses can fit neatly into an algorithm.
Even though the protocols cannot be considered all-inclusive, the goal is to facilitate a logical and efficient stepwise approach to reasonable differential diagnoses for the common clinical problems. The algorithmic format provides a rapid and concise stepwise approach to a diagnosis. Moreover, it would train the brain to approach a problem.
The explosion of knowledge in pediatrics is phenomenal and fast. If the medical advances and good clinical practice get coupled with effective advocacy, our increasing knowledge will benefit child care in our country.I am sure that the algorithms will enhance the capabilities of pediatricians, guiding them towards optimal utilization of available investigative and therapeutic resources.
