Here's quick access to evidence-based recommendations for the diagnosis and management of 41 acute medical conditions. For each condition, there is a four-page guide with brief, bulleted text that outlines symptoms, investigation, therapy, and more. Recommendations are made based on a systematic review of available evidence using approved EBM methods. The weight of each recommendation is graded using the letters A through D, with no additional EBM jargon or statistics. This pocketbook allows readers to reap the benefits of evidence-based research without all the hard work!

  • Reflects the best available evidence, culled from searches and appraisals that were carried out according to approved EBM criteria.
