Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
I warmly recommend this book for the senior house officer's pockets, as well as for the bookshelves of Accident & Emergency departments.
Journal of the Royal College of Physicians of Lond

Its small size, quality binding, excellent index and well laid-out content will appeal to its target - residents, interns and senior medical students.""
Emergency Medicine

A reliable small text such as this can provide reassurance in moments of uncertainty. In summary, this book can be recommended to junior doctors as a concise and practical guide to the work of an A&E department.
Journal of Accident and Emergency

The book is comprehensive and concise. The section on adminstrative and legal considerations is excellent. All junior doctors should read this chapter before starting work in an Accident and Emergency (A&E) department.
British Journal of Anaesthesia.

I find this book a reliable text and will be of enormous help to junior doctors practising accident and emergency medicine for the first time. It is a concise and practical guide.
Postgraduate Medical Journal

Brown's book should be an essential part of the A&E 'shop-floor' library.
