This review is from: Pocket Tutor Understanding ABGs & Lung Function Tests (Pocket Tutor Series) (Paperback)
This pocket-sized guide from JP Medical's Pocket Tutor series may only be 192 pages long, but it is packed with useful information.

Almost the first half of the book is concerned with physiology, lung function and exercise tests, with very little text concerning ABGs. Given the title, that might be taken as overlooking ABGs. However, the reality is that ABG interpretation simply needs less explanation. The second half of the book is divided into lung diseases, circulatory dysfunction, neuromuscular disorders, metabolic, endocrine and renal dysfunction, and other disorders.

The information is clearly and succinctly laid out, making good use of tables, diagrams, numerical examples and clinical insight/scenario boxes.

Like all of the books I have seen from this new and rapidly-expanding series, it works best if used as an introductory text or revision aid. Rather than replacing the Oxford Handbooks series, the Pocket Tutor series is a useful adjunct, probably best suited to use by clinical medical students and foundation doctors.
