Description

Lecture Notes: Emergency Medicine covers all the core aspects of accident and emergency work. It concentrates on the essentials with "immediate action" first and then subsequent treatments. It has been written for students and trainees in accident and emergency medicine by two outstanding physicians. It also provides an invaluable source of information and instruction for anyone, in particular primary care doctors and nurses, who needs to know how to diagnose and manage the early stages of acute medical problems. This edition has been updated to cover the latest resuscitation guidelines. The text has been well reviewed in its previous two editions: As a starting text for understanding of vital aspects for emergency medicine, it is simple to read, logically presented and provides relevant background to any given medical crisis...Greatly useful as a clinical reference." The Gubernaculum, Melbourne University's Medical Society Newsletter "...covers the topics well in a detailed manner, with pertinent and informative diagrams and examples."
MAD, The Student Magazine for Medics & Dentists at Bart's and the London "This book will appeal not only to junior staff in accident and emergency medicine but also students, nurses, and anyone with a casual interest that exceeds the knowledge of first aid." British Medical Journal "The authors have succeeded admirably in their task...invaluable for doctors staffing accident and emergency departments...a ready source of reliable information."

Review quote

"A comprehensive and clearly laid out text. It covers every aspect of emergency medicine from sprained 5th metatarsals to penetrating trauma." Northwing, Sheffield Medical Students' Magazine "This is a good book to use as a supplementary text in general or as the core text for a placement in trauma and emergency medicine. Useful facts are highlighted readily and essential information is presented well." Medical Student, Oxford University "Up-to-date and clinically relevant, this book gets you thinking like an A&E Doctor. It covers everything from Wanderer's foot to acute coronary syndromes. An essential book to any medic about to start working in A&E." Medical Student, St. Georges Medical School "This is one of the best textbooks on the market for Emergency Medicine. It has a clear logical approach to the topics and is thoroughly readable. The book contains all the latest information on how to diagnose and manage acute medical problems. Any medical student or foundation doctor can not afford to be without this book." Medical Student, Keele University
