Accident and Emergency: Diagnosis and Management

Accident and Emergency: Diagnosis and Management

by Anthony F . T . Brown (Author)


This hugely popular book justifiably remains one of the best-selling single-author "Accident and Emergency" handbook in print. Its strength lies in the consistently clear, didactic approach giving immediate access to uncluttered information - ideal for heat-of-the moment decisions by the bedside. No other text sticks to the point quite like this one. This new edition covers every emergency from the major life-threatening event to the more frequent minor complaint. The essentials of diagnosis and management are described concisely and clearly, including exact drug dosages, relevant practical procedures, patient disposition (and its urgency) to inpatient care, outpatients or community care and common pitfalls for the unwary. The fourth edition has been extensively revised and updated to include many new topics and guidelines at the forefront of developments in acute care. Written primarily for senior house officers in the Accident and Emergency Department, it is packed with thorough, practical advice. It will also prove invaluable to general practitioners, emergency and critical care nurses, paramedics and senior medical students.
