Pediatric Cardiology and Pulmonology PDF – A Practically Painless Review
0.6 MB PDF
Keeping all of the relevant information at your fingertips in a field as broad as pediatrics is both an important task and quite a lot to manage. Add to that the busy schedule most physicians and physicians-to-be carry of practice or studies, family life, and personal obligations, and it can be daunting. Whether you would like to keep your knowledge base up to date for your practice, are preparing for the general pediatric board examination or recertification, or are just doing your best to be well prepared for a ward rotation, Practically Painless Pediatrics can be a valuable asset.
Practically Painless Pediatrics brings together the information from several major pediatric board review study guides, and more review conferences than any one physician would ever have time to personally attend, for you to review at your own pace. It’s important, especially if there isn’t a lot of uninterrupted study time available, to find materials that make the study process as efficient and flexible as possible. What makes this book quite unusual among medical study guides is its design using “bite-sized” chunks of information that can be quickly read and processed. Most information is presented in a question-and-answer (Q & A) format that improves attention and focus and ultimately learning. Critically important for most in medicine, it also enhances the speed with which the information can be learned.
Because the majority of information is in question-and-answer (Q & A) format, it is also much easier to use the information in a few minutes of downtime at the hospital or the office. You don’t need to get deeply into the material to understand what you are reading. Each question and answer is brief – not paragraphs long as is often the case in medical review books – which means that the material can be moved through rapidly, keeping the focus on the most critical information.
At the same time, the items have been written to ensure that they contain the necessary information. Very often, the information provided in review books raises as many questions as it answers. This interferes with the study process, because the learner either has to look up the additional information (time loss) or skip the information entirely – therefore not really understanding and learning it. This book keeps answers self-contained, meaning that any needed information is provided either directly in the answer or immediately following it – all without lengthy text.
