Description At A Glance

Considered to be most comprehensive and easy-to-use source of continuously updated evidence-based medical information. Use the high quality, reliable and trusted information to make decisions based on evidence for and against the effectiveness and appropriateness of treatments.

High quality, reliable, evidence-based information for healthcare professionals.

The Cochrane Reviews enables all those involved with healthcare decisions to keep up to date with all the latest evidence in their field of interest – a challenge which becomes harder each year as the volume of evidence increases.

The Cochrane Reviews solves this problem and is the best single source of reliable evidence about the effects of health care.

Cochrane reviews are based on the best available information about healthcare interventions. They explore the evidence for and against the effectiveness and appropriateness of treatments (medications, surgery, education, etc) in specific circumstances.

Those who prepare the reviews are mostly health care professionals who volunteer to work in one of the many Collaborative Review Groups, with editorial teams overseeing the preparation and maintenance of the reviews, as well as application of the rigorous quality standards for which Cochrane Reviews have become known.

  • Cochrane reviews have become known internationally as sources of high quality, reliable health information.
  • A structured format helps the reader to find his/her way around the review easily.
  • Multinational editorial teams try to ensure that a review is applicable in different parts of the world.
  • The Cochrane Reviews is published four times a year.

Your Voice

By David Stockwell, M.D.
The eMedicine Pediatrics PDA version is an identical copy of the chapters offered on their popular website. Skyscape has taken the content and delivered a much more useable product.As it may seem just from the number of chapters and the subheadings for each topic within the chapters. This is an amazingly robust resource. Imagine the full content of the pediatrics section of eMedicine on your handheld (which is exactly what this is) and you can begin to see its power. As on the website, there are also helpful websites that can be helpful for your patients on each topic.

One very helpful addition to the Skyscape version is the listing of medications in the index. Tapping on the medication name will either take you to the associated topic or present a list of associated topics that the medications are used for treatment. While the info on each medication is not as robust as the individual topics it is disease specific and certainly helpful enough.It is so complete that you will eventually find your target. Other than this snag it is very easy navigation and much improved over the MobiPocket version. This is the most robust pediatric resource available and worth the price.

The bottom line is that this is a great resource competitively priced and easy to use. It is as complete a pediatric reference available for the handheld today.
