Product description

This excellent value pack contains the bestselling 8th edition of the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine and Emergencies in Clinical Medicine. The Handbook features extensive artwork, a new history and examination chapter and substantial new content. The Emergencies In...book perfectly complements the Handbook by providing a practical, accessible guide to emergency situations. The Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine is a guiding star for all medical students, junior doctors and trainees. The culmination of more than 20 years' clinical experience, and containing the knowledge and insight gained by more than 15 authors, the new eighth edition continues to be the definitive pocket-sized guide to today's clinical medicine. Packed with clear, clinical management advice which is practical to implement at the bed-side, the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine is written in a clear and didactic style. With witty, esoteric asides linking medicine to everything from the classics to popular culture, all the material is presented in a way that is instantly memorable and even easier to put into practice. The world's best-loved medical handbook now features more extensive artwork, a new history and examination chapter, simplified references and substantial new content. Emergencies in Clinical Medicine is an easy-to-use guide to the management of common medical emergencies. Emergencies nearly always present first to the junior doctor, either as a result of direct observation on the ward, or a phone call from nursing staff when on call. The key to their management is timely recognition and intervention. This book gives the junior doctor and senior medical student the confidence to do this. The text covers emergencies from both a problem-based and disease-based approach, with the book being divided into two sections - presentations and diseases. Cross-referencing between these two sections enables quick reference under pressure, with clear, step-by-step instructions and advice on when and who to call for help.
