Check out this new free PEM iBook

PEM (Pediatric Emergency Medicine) Guides was spearheaded by Dr. Michael Mojica as a point of care resource in the pediatric emergency departments at Bellevue Hospital Center and NYU Langone Medical Center. The focus is in essential diagnostic, treatment and disposition decisions and though not a definitive resource it does have concise and easily accessible information for a wide number of conditions in the Pediatric Emergency Department. And, besides, the price is right, and it will continue to be updated unlike those books printed on paper.
