Customer Review

on 13 January 2007
It is unfortunate that the resuscitation algorithm inside the front cover is not based on the current Resuscitation Council guidelines - I did initially wonder what I had spent my hard earned pennies on!

Although I have not had time to fully digest the information contained in this book it appears (apart from the algorithm above) to reflect changes made in the JRCALC guidelines (a publication that must warrant a mention in the suggested reading section on page 64), although the paediatric non-shockable rhythm algorithm on page 529 indicates the use of adrenaline via the ET route - not recommended in JRCALC.

Each chapter contains information that is relevant and informative and which should aid in the diagnosis/management of many medical and traumatic conditions - I can imagine myself delving into it's pages on a regular basis, either for information or for verification of diagnosis and/or treatment.

Easily distinguishable as one of the Oxford handbook series this book should become a firm favourite with for EMT, Paramedic and ECP personnel and other persons involved in the provision of care in the pre-hospital environment - though if you work to JRCALC or Resuscitation Council guidelines be sure to cross check drugs and protocols are valid.
