Eureka: Paediatrics is an innovative book for medical students that fully integrates core science, clinical medicine and surgery.

The book benefits from an engaging and authoritative text, written by specialists in the field, and has several key features to help you really understand the subject:

  • Chapter starter questions – to get you thinking about the topic before you start reading
  • Break out boxes which contain essential key knowledge
  • Clinical cases to help you understand the material in a clinical context
  • Unique graphic narratives which are especially useful for visual learners
  • End of chapter answers to the starter questions
  • A final self-assessment chapter of Single Best Answers to really help test and reinforce your knowledge

The First Principles chapter clearly explains key concepts and processes such as normal growth and development, nutrition, puberty and adolescence.

The Clinical Essentials chapter provides an overview of the symptoms and signs of childhood disease, relevant history and examination techniques, investigations and management options.

A series of disease-based chapters give concise descriptions of all major neonatal, perinatal and paediatric disorders by body system, each chapter introduced by engaging clinical cases that feature unique graphic narratives.

The Emergencies chapter covers the principles of immediate care in situations such as anaphylaxis and severe asthma.

An Integrated Care chapter discusses strategies for the management of chronic conditions and other issues such as developmental delay across primary and other care settings.

Finally, the Self-Assessment chapter comprises 80 multiple choice questions in clinical Single Best Answer format, to thoroughly test your understanding of the subject.

5 Star Reviews:

"This book certainly does not disappoint! This is a very well written book – very succinct and filled with extremely useful flowcharts and tables."  Amazon reviewer

"Great comprehensive Paeds book for medical students and junior doctors alike. The book is organised into sections (e.g. GI / Resp / Cardiovascular) which makes it easy to look things up. Each chapter starts with a few cases which go over a typical presentation, diagnosis and then management which is very helpful, and also a few questions to test yourself, with answers provided at the end of the chapter." Amazon reviewer

"Another great guide book from Eureka, with highly distilled information to deliver key clinical information and underlying science in an efficient and user friendly format. I was surprised with the extensive content of this book, covering the spectrum of paediatric presentations including an extremely useful paediatric emergencies section in preparation for hitting the wards as a junior doctor."
