FORMAT : ORIGINAL PDF /PRINT REPLICA.Written for medical, nursing, paramedics and students, this easily readable book focuses on providing the reader with a practical introduction to the depth and breadth of emergency medical practice. Each chapter provides a succinct account of the clinical information most relevant to the topic and includes key learning points, clinical guidelines, drug doses, infusion protocols and clinical tools relevant for the management of the acutely ill or injured patient. Topics include resuscitation of the critically ill patient, airway and ventilation, major and minor trauma, paediatric and adult medical and surgical emergencies, mental health emergencies, obstetrics, eye and ENT emergencies, toxicology and environmental emergencies.
The ninth edition explores many of the exciting developments in acute care including the growing experience with bedside ultrasound, the wider use of humidified high flow nasal prong (cannula) therapy (HFNP) and the increasing awareness of the role of human factors in resuscitation. New chapters have been added on topics as diverse as clinical simulation, zero point survey, urogenital and neonatal emergencies, approaches to ED overcrowding and Access block and of course an entire new section on the topic of COVID-19.
Written by an Emergency Physician and a Rural Generalist and supported by a multidisciplinary team of peer reviewers, the book is designed as both an introduction to emergency medical practice and an invaluable resource for the delivery of care at the bedside. The book is closely integrated with the cased based and clinical eLearning resources developed on the LearnEM website (www.learnem.com.au) allowing the reader to further develop and consolidate their skills in Emergency Medicine.
