This site was written during the mid to late 1990s, when I was a medical student and pediatric resident. After that, I updated some parts of it when I was a fellow in pediatric hematology and oncology. Some parts of the site went out of date almost the moment I wrote them, like the vaccination schedule and emergency resuscitation guidelines. Other parts have aged more gracefully. Medicine and best practices change over time, but web sites often do not keep up. Pay attention to the "Last Modification" date at the bottom of most pages; if it looks out of date, make sure you check more recent material to be sure that the old information is still accurate.
The reader of this website is advised to independently check any information related to patient care. The user is responsible for application of this information to specific patients in light of clinical judgement. The author is not responsible for typographical errors. The author disclaims any warranties regarding the quality, accuracy or suitability of any product for any purpose. A number of protocols have been automated on this site (for instance, calculation of IvIg infusion parameters). These calculations should be verified by the user prior to implementation. The results of these calculations should be not be considered to be treatment recommendations. In legal terms, I am not holding myself out as an expert on any of the material on the site.
In short, I would really appreciate not being sued.
The website has a decidedly web one-point-oh look and feel, which reflects not only the technology of the time it was written, but the intention to make the site fit on portable devices (like the trusty old palm pilot III). If anyone finds the site useful and would be willing to update it, you are welcome to do so. If you let me know about it, I could redirect links to updated pages.
