  • Details

An easy-to-use guide to the management of common medical emergencies, this book is an essential for all junior doctors or clinical students.

Emergencies nearly always present first to the junior doctor, either as a result of direct observation on the ward, or a phone call from nursing staff when on call. The key to their management is timely recognition and intervention. This book gives the junior doctor and senior medical student the confidence to do this. The text covers emergencies from both a problem-based and disease-based approach, with the book being divided into two sections - presentations and diseases.

Features:
* A concise guide to the practical management of core medical emergencies
* Uses a series of four icons to distinguish clearly the degree of urgency in which the emergency must be treated
* Provides guidance on initial management of serious medical problems and when to seek help
