In this book on pediatrics Davison has worked out an interesting system of cross-indexing symptoms, diseases, treatment and preventive measures. He has omitted no detail of any importance. Although there are many to whom such a method of presentation will not appeal, all may have occasion to appreciate its value as a reference guide. The general index is also very complete.

The chapter headings are:

  1. Symptoms and Signs of Disease in Children

  2. Diseases, Differential Diagnosis and Treatment

  3. Prevention Measures and Child Care

  4. Administration of Fluid and Blood to Infants

  5. General Suggestions for the Feeding of Normal Infants and Children

  6. Drugs and Prescriptions Frequently Used in Pediatrics

  7. Laboratory Methods.
