Berman’s Pediatric Decision Making

JAMA. 2012;307(6):617-618. doi:10.1001/jama.2012.104

The comprehensive and newly revised fifth edition of Berman's Pediatric Decision Making incorporates recent developments in several important clinical topics and provides updated management guidelines in a restructured and lucid style. The most commendable aspect of the book is its algorithmic approach to diagnosis, risk stratification, and management options for various presenting complaints and specific diagnoses. The format is eloquent and user-friendly, offering a simple schematic representation of a multitude of commonly encountered clinical conditions. The online availability of the full text makes it an exceptionally effective tool in the armamentarium of busy family physicians, pediatricians, nurse practitioners, residents, and medical students.
