Sample content of the static block - primary column bottom.

Over the last 2 decades, medical information for the undergraduates has exponentially increased. All specialties have seen a mind-blowing increase in content and knowledge. The young medico is inundated with overwhelming information. What is important and what is not? What is needed for clinical management?

• Many students find it a challenge to understand English. This book, tries to bridge the gap between concepts and understanding using a simple language, attractive cartoons and a colorful layout.

• It focuses on helping the young student the "why and how?"

• An added attraction is the history panel at the top of every chapter. It provides interesting facts about those who innovated and discovered major milestones in medical history.

• The first book to include a chapter on Pediatric Resuscitation and Emergency Medicine.

• A color atlas on how to perform neurological examination of an infant.

• More than 650 clinical photographs.

• An attempt has been made towards making learning pediatrics a passion.



The focus would be to make it simple, attractive with an emphasis on understanding the relationship between basic science with clinical medicine. Pretty cartoons were included to make complex facts, easy to understand. History panels were designed to provide the young medico a reminder of our past. A chapter on Emergency Medicine was added. Infectious diseases were pictorially represented with time lines. An atlas of neurological examination of an infant was added. The national programs were presented with an emphasis on the understanding on life cycles of vectors. Potentially dull topics, such as fluid and electrolytes, acid-base balance and diabetes ketoacidosis, were made immensely attractive. All topics were edited with the intention of making every aspect of pediatrics a passion!
