In this book on pediatrics Davison has worked out an interesting system of cross-indexing symptoms, diseases, treatment and preventive measures. He has omitted no detail of any importance. Although there are many to whom such a method of presentation will not appeal, all may have occasion to appreciate its value as a reference guide. The general index is also very complete.
The chapter headings are:
Symptoms and Signs of Disease in Children
Diseases, Differential Diagnosis and Treatment
Prevention Measures and Child Care
Administration of Fluid and Blood to Infants
General Suggestions for the Feeding of Normal Infants and Children
Drugs and Prescriptions Frequently Used in Pediatrics
