This week we have two featured books from the current New Acquisitions List. The first featured book is Pediatric Practice: Gastroenterology edited by Warren Bishop featuring contributions by UAMS Faculty members Dr. Judith O'Connor and Dr. Jose Romero, both from the Department of Pediatrics.
Part of the Pediatric Practice series, Pediatric Practice: Gastroenterology is a unique source of clinically relevant information on the diagnosis and treatment of children with gastrointestinal symptoms and disorders. The care of the patient forms the core of this full-color resource, which also provides perspectives on epidemiology, pathophysiology, and diagnosis that every pediatrician, pediatric resident, gastroenterologist, and pediatric nurse needs to know.
Expert authors in each subject area provide detailed, yet concise overviews of important disorders of the esophagus, stomach, intestine, pancreas, and liver. You will also find discussion of common symptoms, their differential diagnosis, and how they should be evaluated and treated along with an introduction to the use of diagnostic modalities such as radiology, nuclear medicine, and edoscopy. A listing of relevant, recent articles appears at the end of each chapter allowing you to expand your exploration of a given topic.
