Format: Paperback
Am currently using this book as part of my own rotation in A&E, and have found it very useful. The condensation of key topics into two page summaries means that you can see all the important facts easily and quickly, in a concise format. The topics are centred around symptoms, eg "shortness of breath" rather than "pneumonia", which is much more helpful in an A&E scenario. Highly recommended.

Format: Paperback
Nice and concise, with enough information to help you along your first A&E rotation but without too much detail to bore or overwhelm. I wish I had known about this before my first A&E job. If you are apprehensive about your upcoming A&E job as a junior doctor and want something light to read that will actually be useful, this is it.

This book provides an invaluable guide to approaching the common A&E presentations. Its format is particularly well suited to the A&E environmental, where time is frequently of the essence. It is a book that all medical students and junior doctors approaching their A&E rotations should strongly consider purchasing.

Format: Paperback
This is a good basic, practical guide for anyone who wants a quick refence to the many common presenting complaints in the emergency department. It's diagrams, 'diagnoses not to miss' and short succinct sections present vital information in an easy to read and remember format. For people short on time, this is a quick and easy tool to help you, the practitioner, (and hopefully your patients) survive your early career in emergency medicine.

The size of the book is not conducive to keeping in a pocket, so it's more suitable as pre-reading prior to working in emergency care, or as a revision guide. I also found the order of contents a bit strange, with it being neither in alphabetical order or in a logical systems or severity order (it's a minor point).

Overall, a useful resource for anyone interested in the essentials of emergency care, whatever the professional background.

I received this title whilst a medical student to review for the publisher and complete this review now as a junior doctor.

The at a Glance series of titles from Wiley publishers is perhaps one of the leading medical revision titles available in the medical market. This title on Adult Emergency Medicine starts with chapters that go through the essentials of emergency medicine in the A&E setting such as the team that are involved, common medications that are used and the ABCDE approach. Throughout the remainder of the title it then goes through a range of different presentations to the A&E department, discussing how you would triage each of these, possible diagnoses and the immediate management required in the acute setting.

The disadvantage that I feel this title has is that it has no true self-assessment questions, I would love in any new edition to see a companion website with this title that has self-assessment questions in the form of clinical scenarios that would test the reader on the appropriate triage, possible diagnoses and potential management of the patient.

In conclusion if you are looking for a title that gives you a good overview of the common presentations to the accident and emergency department and how to initially manage them then this title should be strongly considered.

Format: Paperback
This book delivers a very useful broad overview of the common and important presentations to the ED and interesting perspectives on the practical conduct of pre-hospital medicine and trauma. For ED SHOs short of time before and ED rotation this could serve as an approachable starting point beforehand, containing very useful red flag conditions for each presentation, and to understand the psyche of the emergency physician. It is not all encompassing but it is not intended to be, but can provide a good skeleton of facts on which to build from experience. The chapter on eyes is noted and appreciated.

Got hold of a copy just before my A&E rotation. It's got the perfect amount of detail for what you need to know around the emergency department, and outlines + diagrams/charts of how to manage all conceivable scenarios. The key facts that you'll need quick access to are laid out very clearly for reference, but there's also plenty of detail in each section. Perfect size to fit in your ward bag too!

Highly recommend this book - I personally find it much easier to use than the Oxford Handbook which is smaller, but more dense.
