This is a revised and enlarged edition of the original book by the same authors. It is of eminently practical value to anybody dealing with children, not alone the pediatrician, but the general practitioner as well. Starting with history taking and physical examination, there are excellent chapters on infant feeding, acid-base metabolism, the preschool and the adolescent child and dietaries and various recipes, and also special diets for special conditions. Intelligence tests are described, as well as various diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. An entire chapter is devoted to a consideration of the parenteral administration of fluids, and one to special procedures, including the use and application of the oxygen tent and the treatment of various diseases. The giving of various preventive serums is also discussed. Another chapter is on difficulties in diagnosis and should prove especially interesting to the general practitioner. Finally, there is a short chapter on laboratory methods.
