The Oxford Handbooks used to be the go-to resource on the shop floor as a quick reference guide. Websites such as Medscape and Up to Date have probably ended that but these are still good resources for exam preparation. Most of the MCEM/ FCEM curriculum is included here.

It has some great sections and some weaker ones. It includes some surprising statements such as "ketamine is rarely used in hospital practice for adults" and IV sedation should only be used in "truly exceptional circumstances" for the violent, agitated patient in the ED.

I would recommend this as an MCEM resource, particularly in conjunction with online SAQ's and the excellent Secrets of Emergency Medicine book.

Emergency Medicine Essential. This book is packed full of useful information cramped into such a nice size book . The thin paper reminds me of bible paper which is thin but sturdy. It has a nice waterproof cover and just about any info an ED doc needs to get through a shift and more.

All ED docs need one of this.

Every junior doctor going into EM needs to buy, and READ, this. It has pretty much everything you need to know, although with any textbook, the guidelines may be out of date, so use the general text to guide you as to what you need to know about history, examination and clinical presentations, then check the up-to-date guidance on management of specific conditions. Has got me through MCEM and FCEM.

Good compendium but, similarly to the others of the same collection, not the adequate to tag along in a day at the ER.
They're pretty okay and the information is amazing, however it's a little book that fits a more calm environment, ideal to clear some doubts and talk it out with colleagues and stuff.

Just started in A&E (as an F2). This is a really useful go-to for the things that you almost remember but can't recall the details for management of.
A re-assuring, easy to access companion that fits perfectly into scrubs trouser back pocket. Would certainly recommend to anyone in a similar position.

Good, compact knowledge. Good on diagnostics - a bit scarce on "so what you do now is this..." - Bought this from amazon marketplace - but I received the "South Asia" edition as opposed to the UK version, but it seems like it's not missing anything.

Typical Oxford Handbook to-hand tips for the A&E dept. GREAT for musculockeletal. But has a lot of gaps. So it's perfect if it has what you're looking for, but frustrating when it doesn't. Needs less waffle, more facts/tips for quick emergency dept decision making.

A practical and compact guide to clinical practice in A&E medicine. Logical layout supports paramedic clinical decision-making and is a useful aide-memoire in practice.
