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:
