Oxford Assess and Progress: Emergency Medicine was wonderful in helping me through my acute medical attachment and was a brilliant aid in revision for final exams. The mix of SBAs and EMQs was very useful in testing my knowledge and are the same style of those used in finals. Having detailed answers and feedback really helped me consolidate the more difficult topics. With each question assigned a 'star rating' I know it will be useful in my future career when hopefully I shall be able to get more of the difficult questions right! Caroline Rance, Student, University of Southampton, School of Medicine The 1st edition of the Oxford Handbook of Emergency Medicine (published 1999) has become the "Bible" of Emergency care for many practitioners working in this field - Doctors, Nurses, Paramedics etc... I used it throughout my Specialist Registrar training as both an "on the spot" diagnostic tool but also as a reference aid for my FRCS and FFAEM. There's a lot more in it than you think! The second edition has built on and consolidated all that was good in the 1st edition but added some new sections and expanded others. It includes up to date information and references... I would not only recommend but also INSIST that all practitioners... in emergency care read and used this handbook. It would also be useful to Doctors in almost all specialties including General Practice, General Surgery and General Medicine. Medical Defence Union
