Pediatrics, as well as other medical disciplines, has been constantly changing, a process reflecting the constant emergence of new theoretical information and practical experience. This discipline, however, differs from other medical specializations in many respects. One of the main distinguishing features is the growth and development of children. During childhood, the "normal” data of most laboratory tests constantly change alongside vital functions. It is particularly this volatility that makes pediatrics a very difficult and challenging discipline.
The second edition of Pediatrics Basics presents essential information on etiology, pathophysiology, symptomatology, diagnostics, therapy and prevention of children’s diseases as required by modern pediatrics. In this edition, several chapters have been revised, and others rewritten to include new information in order to meet the demands of evidence based medicine.
