Pediatric Emergency Medicine: Just the Facts, 2nd Edition, is a distillation of the material provided in Pediatric Emergency Medicine, 3rd Edition, which was published in 2009. Just the Facts has been developed as a resource for pediatric emergency physicians, general emergency physicians, pediatricians, and others who regularly provide pediatric emergency care or who only occasionally are called upon to care for sick or injured children. Following the same topical organization as the larger text, this work provides the essential information needed in the emergency care of children in a readily accessible manner. In order to do this, we have omitted much information that is of a supporting or enhancing nature. The current work is not intended to be comprehensive but is designed to be a quick reference, an overview for the first-time user, or a refresher course for the experienced clinician. By virtue of its smaller size, the work is more affordable and more portable than its larger companion. We have included new multiple choice questions with each chapter to facilitate the use of the material as a self-test and as a review for those preparing for in-training, board certification, or recertification examinations.

We would like to express our gratitude to the chapter authors and to Anne Sydor and Brian Kearns at McGraw-Hill for their wonderful support and encouragement. Likewise, we would like to express our gratitude to our families, friends, and colleagues who have tolerated our withdrawal from them while we worked to produce this work.
