Childhood Symptoms: Every Parent's Guide to Childhood Illnesses
Childhood Symptoms Every Parent's Guide to Childhood Illnesses Author:Edward R. Brace An indispensable book for every parent, with more than 500 alphabetically arranged entries that help identify what a child may be suffering from. — Parents are always deeply concerned when a child develops signs and symptoms of a potentially serious medical problem. What's wrong? What can it mean? Should I take the child to the doctor right away?... more » "Childhood Symptoms" attempts to anticipate the types of questions a parent might like to ask the child's doctor and then provides clear answers to those questions.
The basic goal of "Childood Symptoms" is to explain to parents and other concerned adults the significance of virtually all the signs and symptoms of diseases, disorders, and developmental problems that can affect infants, children, and adolescents. Entries are presented in alphabetical order to enhance quick access to essential information. In addition, an extensive system of cross-references, indicated by a term in SMALL CAPITAL LETTERS within the text of an entry or at the end of an entry, helps direct the reader from a specific symptom to those conditions in which that symptom may be important diagnostic evidence for the physician. The reader obtains a fully integrated discussion of specific symptoms and their most likely underlying cause.
The information on pediatric symptoms and diseases contained in the book has been compiled from a variety of sources and is subject to differences of opinion and interpretation. This book is not intended to replace medical advice, and any questions on symptoms, general or specific, should be addressed to a physician.« less
