Coovadia Paediatrics Pdf: A Comprehensive Textbook for Health Professionals

Coovadia Paediatrics Pdf is a digital version of the well-known and trusted textbook Coovadia's Paediatrics and Child Health, which is now in its eighth edition. The book is a comprehensive introduction to paediatrics and child health, with an emphasis on a primary care approach from a southern African perspective. It covers the clinical diagnosis, treatment and management of specific child health conditions and diseases, as well as the social and ethical aspects of paediatric care. The book is aimed primarily at undergraduate medical students, but also at nurses, community health workers and other health professionals who work with children in developing countries.

The book is divided into nine parts, each focusing on a different aspect of paediatric practice. The first part provides an overview of the principles and practice of paediatrics, including history taking, physical examination, growth and development, nutrition, immunization and common problems. The second part deals with neonatal care, including perinatal problems, resuscitation, low birth weight and congenital anomalies. The third part covers infections and immunological disorders, such as tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS, malaria, meningitis and rheumatic fever. The fourth part discusses disorders of the respiratory system, such as asthma, pneumonia, cystic fibrosis and bronchiolitis. The fifth part covers disorders of the gastrointestinal system, such as diarrhoea, vomiting, malnutrition and liver disease. The sixth part deals with disorders of the nervous system, such as epilepsy, cerebral palsy, head injury and developmental delay. The seventh part covers disorders of the endocrine system, such as diabetes mellitus, thyroid disorders and growth hormone deficiency. The eighth part discusses disorders of the renal system, such as urinary tract infections, nephrotic syndrome and renal failure. The ninth part covers miscellaneous topics, such as dermatology, ophthalmology, otolaryngology, orthopaedics, oncology and palliative care.

The book adopts a problem-based approach that facilitates a full evaluation of the sick child from a holistic perspective. It also incorporates evidence-based guidelines and protocols from local and international sources. The book features tables that summarise factual information such as signs and symptoms for quick reference; information boxes that list or highlight information or provide additional points; figures with illustrations, mind maps or flow charts; X-rays and other images; case studies that illustrate common scenarios; key points that highlight important concepts; learning objectives that outline the main outcomes; self-assessment questions that test understanding; and references that provide further reading.
