Nelson Textbook of Pediatrics-2 Volume Set-21st Edition

Brief Introduction

The 21st edition of Nelson Textbook of Pediatrics continues its tradition of being an essential resource for general pediatric providers and pediatric subspecialists as they diagnose and treat infants, children, and adolescents throughout the world. The 21st edition has been thoroughly revised, updated, and edited to keep up with the huge advances in clinical care derived from basic, clinical, and population-based research. The promise that translational medicine will improve the lives of children has become a daily reality for most but not all children. Knowledge of human development, behavior, and diseases from the molecular to sociologic levels has led to greater understanding of health and illness in children and substantial improvements in health quality for those who have access to health care. These exciting scientific advances also provide hope to effectively address prevention and treatment of new and emerging diseases threatening children and their families.

Excerpts

Nutrition for infants, children, and adolescents should maintain current weight and support normal growth and development. Growth during infancy is rapid, critical for neurocognitive development, and has the highest energy and nutrient requirements relative to body size than any other period of growth. It is followed by growth during childhood, when 60% of total growth occurs, and finally by puberty. Nutrition and growth during the 1st 3 yr of life predict adult stature and some health outcomes. The major risk period for growth stunting (impaired linear growth) is between 4 and 24 mo of age. Therefore, it is critical to identify nutrient deficiencies promptly and to address them aggressively early in life, because missing them can impart lasting adverse effects on later growth and development. Dietary intake should provide energy requirements as well as the essential macronutrient and micronutrient needs for sustaining the function of multiple vital processes. Nutrient deficiencies can limit growth, impair immune function, affect neurodevelopment, and increase morbidity and mortality. Worldwide, malnutrition and undernutrition are the leading causes of acquired immunodeficiency, and a major factor underlying morbidity and mortality in children <5 yr of age.
