This thoroughly updated Fourth Edition is a must for residents and practitioners who need a practical, clear, and readable guide to emergency medicine procedures.

"Axioms" and "Cautions" highlighted by large headings appear throughout the book and more than 400 easy-to-follow diagrams demonstrate key techniques. This edition describes the latest procedural advances and includes much-needed guidelines on newer problems involving implantable defibrillators, indwelling devices, and percutaneous feeding tubes.

A Brandon-Hill recommended title.
