GeneralPediatrics.com has added 21 new links since our last newsletter.

For Professionals:

1. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists has new guidelines for emergency contraception.

2. The American College of Emergency Physicians has information about procedural sedation and analgesia. Although this is written for the emergency room, it is helpful for physicians in an office setting too.
