The following are study notes for Otago Medical School, Diploma of Child Health (DCH), Royal Australasian College of Physician (RACP) and College of Intensive Care Medicine (CICM) exams. They are not a peer reviewed reference - I collated them from many sources to gather together the thousand and one things I was trying to remember. I accept no responsibility for mistakes - go find them.
I suggest saving them and viewing them in Adobe Reader - go to the Bookmarks pane for a drill-down index. All the table of contents page numbers and cross references are hyper-lined - but these hyperlinks don't work in Google Docs.
There is no charge for my labours - but I would encourage you to show your appreciation (if any!) by making a donation to those in even more dire straights than you. Go to World Vision and help.
