    DescriptionTwo titles from the bestselling Oxford Handbook and Emergencies in...series are available together in this great value pack. The Oxford Handbook of Gastroenterology and Hepatology comprises a unique A-Z compendium of the specialty, and a dedicated section detailing 30 of the most common problems in GI medicine, which can be used as a quick reference. A new section on clinical practice and diagnostics provides valuable new guidance on diagnostic procedures and reduces the time needed to search for each individual procedure and its associated complications. Further enhanced sections include emergencies, and commonly used drugs used in gastroenterology and hepatology, with emphasis on practice tips and common complications. Reflecting current approaches in training and curricula, the handbook has been arranged to reflect a clinical problems-based approach. Navigability has been enhanced, with a comprehensive index as well as an anatomical index being added to the existing A-Z format to ensure the right information will always be at your fingertips. The result of this new approach is a handbook which is practical, easy-to-use, and informative. It is an essential guide to the management of common conditions and is invaluable to all those involved in the care of patients with gastrointestinal disease. An easily accessible guide to diagnosing and managing critical situations, Emergencies in Gastroenterology and Hepatology aids doctors in dealing with acutely sick patients quickly and effectively. The book provides practical advice on how to make difficult decisions in an emergency situation. Areas covered include life and death emergencies, as well as the broad problems faced by on-call Gastroenterologists and Hepatologists on a daily basis. The focus throughout is on immediate management, but the book also includes reference to long term follow up for certain problems. Each chapter has an associated algorithm, which summarises the contents of the chapter, providing an aide memoir for the reader and facilitating learning, as well as being a quick reference tool. Bullet-point information for speed and clarity combined with the integral cross-referencing system, further enables quick access to the necessary information.
