Product Description


"This is a great book for people who like solid answers to practical questions. Unlike some revision books this one is actually useful to doctors and not just medical students wanting to pass finals. It tackles common presentations, not rare conditions and is interesting to read." ( The Murmer , August 2009)

From the Author

Traditionally, medical text books have tended to be structured around clinical diagnoses. Chapters entitled: 'Myocardial Infarction', 'Pneumonia', 'Peptic ulceration', etc, may incorporate detailed descriptions of each condition's epidemiology, physiology and clinical features. Sadly 'real' clinical medicine is not this simple - patients present with a problem, rather than a diagnosis; the latter is often only reached after careful assessment and investigation. 'Acute Medicine - Clinical Cases Uncovered' tackles this challenge by starting with the patient's initial complaint and working through to the diagnosis via a series of clinical questions. Each chapter tackles a different problem, and I have selected these to reflect the common scenarios which students, junior doctors and nurses could expect to encounter on the Acute Medical Unit.

Having worked as a consultant in Acute Medicine for over 10 years I have seen patients with many hundreds of different diagnoses. Fortunately the problems with which they presented to hospital can be categorised into a much smaller number of groups. The 22 cases selected for inclusion should encompass the presenting complaint of more than 80% of the medical patients admitted as emergencies.

I hope that readers will find this a useful book. Although originally aimed at clinical medical students, I understand that nurses, junior doctors and allied healthcare professionals working in the field of acute medicine have all found it useful. The Acute Medical Unit can be an intimidating environment for students, but is also a rich resouce for learning. I feel that this is the sort of text book which I would like to have owned as a student going onto the wards for the first time, and hope that it will help to make the first encounters with 'real clinical medicine' less daunting!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent teaching book 14 Mar 2009
This is an excellent book for both nurses and trainee doctors looking to advance their practice describing the practical side of care and the theory behind it. Its clear outline makes it very accessible and the cases are all too familiar to anyone who has worked in Acute Medicine.

The book allows insight into patients' conditions and initiates an interest that should lead the reader onto further reading. Its section on ABCDE is thorough and I have used it to assist me in teaching nurses about assessment and how it is an invaluable tool. Also I think that because the book has something for nurses and "baby medics" it allows each group to gain an understanding of the role they play and the specific workload that each should be tasked with and altogether aids multi-disciplinary teamwork.

I have recommended this book to many people now as it truly is a joy to read and unlike most textbooks you can take it to bed without falling asleep. Overall Chris Roseveare has produced a text of excellent quality, full of information and accessible to all and a vital handbook to anyone working within Acute Medicine

It covers the most important elements of the most common cases seen in Acute Medicine. A great starting point.....and probably finishing point too if Acute Medicine is not your long term career goal.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book 20 Sep 2011
By Aki
I like this and the other CCU books as it puts your clinical knowledge to practice with different scenarios and cases. It won't substitute a good basic text but it helps to widen your thinking and pespective
