This new volume in the established and well-respected series of Self-Assessment Color Reviews covers all aspects of adult emergency medicine. Some 250 cases are presented randomly to reflect real-life practice.
Each case consists of one or more questions, illustrated by stimulating visual material including clinical photographs, imaging and electrocardiograms. Answers and full discussion then follow covering differential and definitive diagnoses, management and subtle insights to provide optimal care and prevent complications.
The book appeals to a wide readership, ranging from trainees to practitioners in emergency medicine or primary care, for examination revision and continuing education.
"This is a good text for anyone with an interest in emergency medicine. It provides the reader with a different way to further his/her knowledge and test his/her ability to make spot diagnoses and construct management plans. … would be an interesting addition to any emergency medic's library."
—Simon Laing, Heart of England Foundation Trust, in British Journal of Hospital Medicine
