The American Academy of Pediatrics Guide to Your Child's Symptoms : The Official, Complete Home Refe

Resource Type

Book - Parent


"At the heart of the AAP's Guide to Your Child's Symptoms is an A-to-Z directory of more than one hundred of the most common childhood symptoms, presented in clearly illustrated, easy-to-follow charts designed to enable a parent to quickly identify a symptom, learn its possible cause, and determine how best to proceed, whether it's taking action at home or calling the pediatrician immediately. The book's purpose is to help parents distinguish minor everyday problems from more serious conditions, and then to suggest a reasonable course of action based on the most current and rigorously reviewed medical information available. It covers the symptoms of infants, young children, and adolescents. The book also includes an illustrated first-aid manual, a guide to food safety, and an extensive index." -From the Publisher
