The fifth edition of this international best-selling emergency medicine handbook has been completely updated and expanded to include the latest evidence-based guidelines in both emergency and acute medicine. The text follows a standard, clear and well set-out approach designed to maximize the practical delivery of care at the bedside. New additions to this edition range from the 2005 CPR Guidelines, febrile neutropenia and acute renal failure to information on handling SARS, bird 'flu and chemical and biological threats, amongst many others. On-the-spot decision making with a constant stream of undifferentiated patients requires a special kind of doctor – one who is up to the challenge and prepared to act, not just think. This new edition will prove an indispensable resource full of succinct, invaluable and appropriate information for the intern, SHO or junior registrar, whether called upon to act in the relative quiet of the night or during the hectic challenge of a weekend afternoon. The same high standards of care are expected with no margin for error; let this book take you to the benchmark, and make you a source of invaluable knowledge for others.
