This updated and extended edition of the SickKids Handbook takes the reader through the entire field of pediatric thrombosis and hemostasis. An introductory section concisely explains the complex pathophysiology of thrombosis and hemostasis. The chapters that follow include practical, evidence-based information on the diagnosis and management of inherited and acquired bleeding disorders and thrombotic events of the venous, arterial, cardiac and central nervous systems that affect children. Special features include practical clinical algorithms and appendices that cite normal laboratory reference ranges, as well as recommended dosages of blood products and major hemostatic agents. A stand-alone chapter is dedicated to developmental hemostasis and bleeding in the neonate. A chapter on antithrombotic therapy in children gives succinct information on the old and new anticoagulants, antiplatelet drugs and thrombolytic agents. Written and reviewed by international experts in the field, this handbook is intended for health care professionals involved in the assessment and care of children with inherited and acquired bleeding and clotting disorders, including general and specialist pediatricians (in particular intensivists, neonatologists, cardiologists/cardiac surgeons, rheumatologists and nephrologists), hematologists/oncologists (pediatric and adult), as well as medical trainees, nurses, nurse practitioners and pharmacists.

This is the only comprehensive collection of algorithms which exclusively addresses hematologic and oncologic problems affecting neonates, children and adolescents. Examining clinical problems which challenge the pediatrician, general practitioner and family practice physician, each algorithm utilizes a concise, step-by-step approach based upon clues from the history, physical examination and laboratory studies. The algorithms addressing differential diagnosis clearly distinguish between the most common etiologies, those that are less frequent, and finally some that are rare but important to recognize. The 51 topics include evaluation of anemia, sickle cell anemia, thalassemia, hemolytic anemia, the bleeding child, thrombocytopenia, and other platelet disorders, hemophilia, leukocyte disorders, leukemias, lymphadenopathy, splenomegaly, approaches to mass lesions in the mediastinum, abdomen, pelvis, bones and soft tissues as well as approaches to potential emergencies such as tumor lysis and superior vena cava syndromes. The oncology topics emphasize diagnostic approach and management of complications, and not the details of chemotherapy. All algorithms are presented with a page of explanatory notes and a list of selected reading. Pediatricians, family physicians and general practitioners will find this book very helpful in managing problems in their practices. Trainees in pediatric hematology will find it a useful tool in developing approaches to solve the problems they will encounter, and pediatric hematologists/oncologists oncologists will find it useful as a teaching tool.

An “astounding and miraculous ” (Madeline Levine) medical memoir by one of our nation’s leading pediatric surgeons-- the visionary head of Children’s National Anyone who has seen a child recover from a wound or a broken bone knows that kids are made to heal. Their bodies are more resilient, more adaptive, and far more able to withstand acute stress than adults’. In this inspiring memoir, Dr. Kurt Newman draws from his long experience as a pediatric surgeon working at one of our nation’s top children’s hospitals to make the case that children are more than miniature adults. Through the story of his own career and of the brave kids he has treated over the years—and their equally brave and tenacious parents—he reveals the revolution that is taking place in pediatric medicine. When he decided to become a pediatric surgeon, the field was in its infancy, struggling for esteem. Now, nearly forty years later, it is at the forefront of exhilarating new discoveries in everything from cancer research to mental health care. But few parents know how to access the best care for their children. Far too many find themselves frustrated and afraid. Dr. Newman wrote this book to help guide parents—not just of sick kids but of all kids —and to share his knowledge of what children need to thrive. A deeply human story with a spectacular cast of young heroes and heroines, Healing Children will convince you that we still have a lot to learn from our kids.
