Overview

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.

This edition has been updated to cover the latest resuscitation guidelines.
