Product description

Review

The book's text is, in 2 words, organized and concise. (JAMA, Vol 298, No. 14,)

This book (which is also available for your PDA) is a no-nonsense guide to acute presentations and guides you succinctly through the presentation of, causes of and (most importantly) a stepwise plan of action for common acute scenarios. (Medic World)

The Oxford Handbook of Acute Medicine is a good introduction about the day-to-day issues of hospital-based medicine. It is thorough, well-written, timely, and suited for budding physicians and those at the beginning of their careers. this will be a book about practicalities. It is not intended to be a dusty tome that one consults when one has the luxury of time. Rather, they intend for it to become dog-eared from frequent use. (Respiratory Care, Vol 50, No 9)

This pocket-sized book contains an absolute wealth of information on acute medical problems and is very comprehensive in the breadth of its coverage. (Hospital Doctor)

The Oxford Handbook series have done it again, another great book to add to this ever growing collection . . . I would have thought junior medical staff would benefit most from this book but GPs and their registrars would also appreciate some of the wisdom. Even more senior medical staff would also want to own a copy and best of all is the price. This book truly represents superb value for money and even if this book gets a bit dog eared after a few months use, or worse gets lost or pinched (surely not), it will not break the bank to get another one . . . Certainly this book ranks up there with a BNF, a stethoscope, and a bleep that junior medical staff need to go about their daily duties. As for other practitioners both hospital and non hospital based, this is also a very useful book to keep them up to date with what goes on in acute medicine. (Dr Harry Brown on the Univadis website)
