Two titles from the bestselling Oxford Handbook and Emergencies in...series are available together in this great value pack. The Oxford Handbook of Clinical Surgery has been thoroughly revised to include brand new chapters on Paediatric Orthopaedics and Common Surgical Procedures, as well as new presentations, illustrations, and new anatomy and emergency indexes to aid quick reference. It is an invaluable tool for junior surgical trainees, medical students, nursing, paramedical, and rehabilitation staff. The handbook covers the assessment and preparation of the patient, anaesthesia and critical care, inflammation, wound healing and infection, and the key components of general surgical practice, as well as chapters on other surgical specialties, including plastic, paediatric, and orthopaedic surgery. There are step-by-step descriptions of common operative surgical techniques, practical hints and procedures, and information on signs, symptoms and rarities. Emergency presentations are clearly identified for rapid reference and investigations and management plans are set out in a clear and easy-to-follow way.
Surgically relevant anatomy and physiology has been expanded for each area, quick reference symbols ensure the reader is guided to key facts, and there is an increased focus on evidence-based practice with key references throughout. A cut above the rest, this is the essential guide to clinical surgery and the surgical specialities. Emergencies in Clinical Surgery aims to make the life of junior surgeons easier through providing a quick-reference, practical guide to common emergency surgical problems and trauma. It is written in an easily accessible, concise style, and is in a pocket-sized format that means that readers are able to refer to it on the ward, or on the way down to the Emergency Department. The use of icons indicating the degree of urgency for each condition helps to focus the mind of the reader and aid in the identification of true emergencies. Part 1 deals with three different approaches to the sick surgical patient, as well as communication and how to prepare the patient for emergency surgery, endoscopy, or interventional radiology. Part 2 is concerned with the assessment and management of trauma emergencies, the acute abdomen, and ward emergencies.
Conditions are cross-referenced to more detailed topics in Part 3 ('Disease-based emergency surgery'). This contains a fuller description of individual diseases with comments on initial and further investigations and management. Specific early complications after surgery, endoscopy, and interventional radiology are also dealt with. Finally, Part 4 describes how to perform common procedures, along with their indications, contraindications, and post-procedure care.show more
