  • generous use of colour, warning boxes, icons, clinical tips and practical advice to help the reader find information at a glance
  • numerous illustrations help explain more difficult concepts
  • detailed guidance on when to treat, how to treat, when to refer or when minor trauma is indicative of a more serious diagnosis.
