Description

Clinical Cases in Emergency Medicine: A Physiological Approach was compiled from real emergency cases from the Hobart Hospital Accident and Emergency wards. The authors have selected key emergency cases and presented the diagnosis and management of each condition with timelines to demonstrate the pressured element of working in emergency medicine. Enhanced with exam questions, photos, clinical vignettes, ECGs, X-rays and literature searches, the book is aimed at helping students make the transition to the clinical environment. It features real emergency room cases and how they were managed. It includes self assessment multiple choice and exam questions. It is aimed at pre clinical medical students in undergraduate and postgraduate courses.
