I bought this book as soon as it was published. What a disapointment. On first opening the book it is full of disclaimers saying it is aware of updates coming into practise in 2010 and this book doesnt include them therefore the reader should check resus council websites etc....What, so err what is the point of buying the book?? This book came out in 2012! Yet is out of date as it does not include the updates from 2010, come on that is surely not acceptable!

My second problem with this book. Imagine the scene, I go to a patient with DKA, umm I wonder if my new book mentions DKA...errr no and only a tiny few lines on hyper/hypo. I find the detail massively lacking, yet it covers nuclear incidents mass incidents etc...err the last time I went to a nuclear incident was when? The information you really need isnt here. I seriously considered cutting out about a third of the book with a stanley knife as it just isnt relevant. I then realised I may as well just bin the book.

I get the impression all they have done with this book is try to make a fast buck by shortening the larger emergency care book.....just not good enough and a total waste of money.

Great book to use as quick reference for Paramedics particularly, and other pre-hospital and out of hospital clinicians. All the information is evidence based and with the latest related procedures in the UK. It has a systematic approach with a quick organisation and easy to find step by step paramedic procedures. All topics are visited.

This is a book I can 100% recommend, you will not regret buying it.

I recently purchased this book and have been impressed with its content and portability. The authors are clearly highly experienced within the pre-hospital care fraternity and have added some useful updates for the career focused paramedic. Unfortunately, there are some recent guidelines not printed in the initial publication, such as UK Resuscitation Council Guidelines, but I understand this has to be accepted due to the frequency of clinical updates?! Overall, I have found this book to be good value and a useful addition to my pre-hospital care literature.

Whilst working as a pre-hospital para-professional, I have found the addition of this book into my kit bag to be invaluable. It is small and light enough to fit into a leg pocket on my uniform, next to the ever-present JRCALC guidelines, but does contain a wealth of information.

I appreciate the lack of current guidelines could be a problem for some, however the authors have taken their larger 'textbook' and provided a concise version, enabling a paramedic to refer to it if necessary. Just to have it to read whilst on a stand-by point is worth the outlay.
