Pediatric Physical Examination is an excellent book for those who are just learning the pediatric exam but it’s also a perfect refresher for seasoned pediatricians.
This is a complete and thorough journey through each and every system of the pediatric physical examination. Lots of photographs and illustrations will make you comfortable with the pediatric physical exam. Colored tables and pediatric pearls for important information to stand out. For infants and young children it emphesizes the less-invasive to more-invasive approach instead of the head-to-toe approach used in older children and adult exam.
One of the pearls for example that I really liked is the pull the tragus instead of the ear pinna for straightening the auditory canal, really useful trick that I tried on my patients and it works.
Highly recommended specially for medical students and pediatric residents. I think this book should be the recommended curriculum book in each med school.
