Product information Paediatric Emergency Medication Book: India

Keeping kids safe when every second counts…

Paediatric Emergency Medication Book: India provides a practical, pragmatic guide to one of the most stressful clinical encounters, that is, the resuscitation of a critically ill infant or child. Medication safety during paediatric resuscitation is vitally important. Time pressures of emergency treatment can lead to errors in drug calculation, drawing up, dilution, or administration. Such errors can be catastrophic, potentially leading to worsening shock, cardiac arrest, or even death.

This book, based on a successful model developed at Monash Children’s Hospital, Australia, and building on years of clinical experience in one of the busiest paediatric emergency departments in the world (Institute of Child Health, Chennai), is designed to improve safety during the resuscitation of critically ill children.

Key features:

  • Pre-calculated, weight-based doses in resuscitation situations (cardiac arrest, intubation, seizures, shock, electrolyte abnormalities, and anaphylaxis)
  • Age-appropriate endotracheal tube size and positioning
  • Established Advanced Paediatric Life Support (APLS) and Paediatric Resuscitation and Emergency Medicine (PREM) guidelines are presented for a number of critical conditions, including asthma, dengue, snake bite, seizures, septic shock, and respiratory distress.
  • Information is provided in a user-friendly and colour-coded layout. Tables and highlighting provide easy access to medication doses, appropriate dilution, infusions rates, and volumes to be administered.
  • The book is spiral-bound, durable, and specifically designed for use in clinical settings such as on a resuscitation trolley, in theatre, in the emergency department, or intensive care.

This resource is endorsed by the Tamil Nadu Accident and Emergency Care Initiative (TAEI) and PREM initiative (National Health Mission–Tamil Nadu), Society of Emergency Medicine India (SEMI), and Society of Trauma and Emergency Paediatrics (STEP)–India.

What is an e-book?

An e-book is an electronic edition of a printed book that is available as a file. The content does not differ from the printed edition of the book. Thieme offers electronic books in PDF and EPUB formats. For both formats, you need software to display the documents on your reading device. This software is not part of the e-book download.

What is the PDF format?
Adobe PDF format (Portable Document Format) is a standard format in MAC/PC area. Free programs for reading a PDF are available for all common operating systems (e.g. Windows, Mac OS, Linux) and for almost all e-book readers such as e-book readers, tablets or smartphones.

What is the EPUB format?
EPUB (electronic publication) is a standard format for e-books that enables dynamic adaptation of the text to the size of the display device. It is particularly well suited for displaying e-books on tablet PCs, smartphones, and e-book readers.
EPUBs can also be easily displayed on MACs/PCs via the free ADE (Adobe Digital Editions) software, for example.

Is an Internet connection required to read an e-book?
An Internet connection is required only to download the e-book to the reader. Once the download is complete, you can view and read the e-book without an Internet connection.

Are e-books copy-protected?
E-books from Thieme Publishing Group are provided with DRM (Digital Rights Management) protection from Vitalsource

On how many devices can I read the e-book?
You can read an e-book on up to six different (mobile) devices. These devices must be authorized with the same Adobe ID.

Can I exchange/return an e-book?
E-books are products that are not suitable for return due to their nature. Just like downloads of other electronic files (movies, music or software), e-books are excluded from the right of withdrawal. A return or exchange is therefore not possible.
