100 Medical Emergencies for Finals
Radcliffe Publishing, 2006 - Emergency medicine - 120 pages
Failure to demonstrate confidence in the safe management of common medical emergencies is one of the major anxieties facing final-year medical students. Recent changes to the responsibilities of junior doctors also mean that they can be exposed to a wide range of emergency situations before they are fully prepared. This book arms students with the knowledge needed to convince examiners that they are safe to practise as doctors, and provides house officers with up-to-date, evidence-based advice on emergency situations across all the specialities.
