Description

Reviews

'This is the latest offering in the series of highly successful Oxford handbooks in emergency medicine. It continues in the same vein as its predecessors providing concise, practical information in an easily readable format...The book will be most useful to the junior doctor as a pocket reference in the first one to two months of a busy accident and emergency post. It will occupy and excellent niche for those wanting a little more detail than the standard accident and emergency texts:it is highly recommended.' T B Hasson, Trauma 1999:1:85
