About this book

With the introduction of new post-graduate Medical training in the UK, virtually all doctors will be exposed to some form of surgical training prior to specialization. Many of these doctors will have little exposure to surgical emergencies in medical school. Thus, they may unnecessarily refer to a senior doctor when not needed, or catastrophically neglect a patient needing urgent surgical opinion.

 

Surgical Emergencies in Clinical Practice is a compact resource which allows any clinician, without previous surgical knowledge, to be able to make an accurate diagnosis and have a treatment plan for the whole spectrum of surgical emergencies. The essential steps of initial management of all surgical emergencies is outlined in a manner that can be used on a day-to-day basis for clinical management.

 

Written by experts in the field, Surgical Emergencies in Clinical Practice is a valuable tool for all junior doctors and medical students in the UK, Europe, Asia and North America. It will also be of interest to nurse practitioners, general practitioners and allied health professionals managing these patients.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This handbook describes essential interventions for urgent problems seen by practitioners in surgical disciplines. … Medical students and first-year trainees in nonsurgical disciplines will benefit from this work originating from teaching programs in the United Kingdom and India. … This is a worthwhile pocket-sized guide for medical students or nonsurgical junior house officers.” (David J. Dries, Doody’s Review Service, November, 2012)
