This text offers a unique format for delivering information about a wide range of pediatric emergencies. Instead of the usual textbook layout, the book contains a group of tear-out pages that can be posted in a common area to share information with all members of the health care team. Eye catching graphics and simple explanations make the content easy to read and absorb during a short break in a busy shift. In addition, the author provides mnemonics, such as “the ABCs” for pediatric asthma and “the rule of 9’s” to evaluate the extent of a burn injury. Most of the posters end with a “moral of the story,” a key take-home point about the condition discussed. This book would be useful in pediatric settings to provide all members of a health care team with up-to-date information about emergency situations.
