Identifying Milk Allergy in Children

You can't know everything about everything, but medical professionals need to come close. True, they get years of training, both classroom and on-the-job. Their knowledge and skills nevertheless need to be continually refreshed, lest they miss a crucial bit of information at a critical time.

I found a quick refresher page on Advance for Nurses, "providing news and clinical and professional information for LPNs/LVNs." Kim Mudd, research nurse/program coordinator, pediatric allergy/immunology, Johns Hopkins Hospital, Baltimore [named the best hospital in America by U. S. News and World Reports, BTW], wrote a test case on Milk Allergy in Children.

Though aimed at professionals and footnoted up the wazoo, the article is far more readable than a medical journal article. Mudd compresses tons of facts on the subject into a small space, making the article an excellent reference to bookmark and come back to for the facts.
