This book is part of an encyclopedic medical book series, but can be acquired separately. It covers the therapeutics in respect to nutrition and growth and gives the latest in all medical and surgical therapeutics for the modern pediatrician.
Not only are drugs given, but hundreds of medical pediatric procedures and methods of healing are described in detail.
This book shows us again that though the antibiotics of the last ten years are a necessity, a great many pediatric conditions can be treated with a much simpler approach.
If it comes to prescription writing, this book offers an immense number of valuable formulas, with correct dosage in the decimal system. The book is excellently indexed. It is a fine contribution to pediatrics and is highly recommended.
