About the Authors
  • The field of emergency medicine is one of the most rapidly growing areas of the medical profession. The present book is a comprehensive text on this important specialty for resident and attending physicians. In sixty-three chapters, the book aims to cover the field completely--from the scene of the accident to specialist referral and from head to toe. The informative papers are organized into three complementary sections: accident assessment and general principles of emergency medicine; trauma conditions; and surgical and obstetric emergencies. This highly illustrated volume combines the insights of emergency physicians with the detailed knowledge of specialists.

    • A unique combination of the detailed knowledge of the specialist with the practical day to day management insight of the emergency physician
    • Definitive and internationally applicable
    • Highly illustrated and detailing a wide range of practical procedures
    • Suitable for trainees preparing for the FRCS exam and the soon to be established FAEM examination
