Review quote

The Fourth Edition of the Oxford Handbook of Emergerncy Medicine is proof that good things come in small packages. This compact little powerhouse more than lives up to expectations established by earlier editions. It offers sound clinical guidance in an easily accessible format and would be a handy edition to the pockets of emergency medidince clinicians. * Journal of the American Medical Association *
