Overview

This core text covers all aspects of accident and emergency medicine. It concentrates on the essentials with "immediate action" first and then subsequent treatments. Crafted by two outstanding physicians, it has been written for students and trainees in accident and emergency medicine. Additionally, it will be invaluable as an information and instruction source for the lay person, as well as primary-care doctors and nurses, who need to know how to diagnose and manage the early stages of acute medical problems such as asthma or a broken bone.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jon C. Olsen, M.D., F.A.C.E.P.(University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: This second edition textbook is a brief review of disease and injuries that commonly present to the emergency department (ED). The first edition was published in 1985 by a different author. The current authors practice in the U.K.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide medical students and young doctors with the basic knowledge to deal with crises in the ED. These worthy objectives are, for the most part, met.
Audience: The book is written for medical students and junior practitioners. It is an introductory text to the practice of emergency medicine and is not comprehensive enough for the specialist in emergency medicine. The authors are professors of emergency medicine in the U.K.
Features: In 22 chapters, the authors cover traumatic and medical emergencies, and pediatric, psychiatric, and medico-legal aspects of emergency medicine. Topics are broken down by assessment, diagnosis, and treatment with boxes highlighting key points. The few illustrations are black-and-white drawings. No radiographs are included. The assessment/management in the U.K. differs from the practice in the U.S. in parts of the text (e.g., recommending liberal use of plain skull films over CT in blunt head trauma, no mention of angioplasty for MI, etc.) No references are listed.
Assessment: Medical students rotating in the ED would be well served to read this text on their emergency medicine rotation. Practitioners beyond this level of training are better served with a more comprehensive text. This updated edition is a much-needed update over the first edition. Future editions should include radiographs and references.
