An invaluable self-assessment tool for emergency medicine trainees in Australasia. Emergency Medicine MCQs is an essential resource for Australasia’s emergency medicine trainees. A practical self-assessment tool, the book assists trainees as they expand and refine their knowledge of emergency medicine, and will ultimately help them pass the Australasian Emergency Medicine Fellowship examination (FACEM). The multiple-choice questions in Emergency Medicine MCQs cover both the core and non-core areas in the Australasian Emergency Medicine Fellowship. Using this text, trainees can revise alone or with their peers to identify the areas in which they need further development. The curriculum is divided into three main areas where trainees require expert level of knowledge, high level of knowledge and general level of knowledge. It covers important clinical problems encountered in everyday emergency medicine practice – from cardiovascular emergencies through to obstetric and gynaecology emergencies, disaster management and toxicology. As well as being ideal for emergency medicine trainees qualifying through AECM, the book is a useful resource for GPs taking the GEM qualification through ACEM and JMOs ‘on call’. Plus, this emergency medicine text is accompanied by an app – a separate product containing 180 randomised multiple-choice questions on all the topics within the book.

Publisher: St. Martin's Press
On Call begins with a newly-minted doctor checking in for her first day of residency--wearing the long white coat of an MD and being called "Doctor" for the first time. Having studied at Yale and Dartmouth, Dr. Emily Transue arrives in Seattle to start her internship in Internal Medicine just after graduating from medical school. This series of loosely interconnected scenes from the author's medical training concludes her residency three years later. During her first week as a student on the medical wards, Dr. Transue watched someone come into the emergency room in cardiac arrest and die. Nothing like this had ever happened to her before-it was a long way from books and labs. So she began to record her experiences as she gained confidence putting her book knowledge to work. The stories focus on the patients Dr. Transue encountered in the hospital, ER and clinic; some are funny and others tragic. They range in scope from brief interactions in the clinic to prolonged relationships during hospitalization. There is a man newly diagnosed with lung cancer who is lyrical about his life on a sunny island far away, and a woman, just released from a breathing machine after nearly dying, who sits up and demands a cup of coffee. Though the book has a great deal of medical content, the focus is more on the stories of the patients' lives and illnesses and the relationships that developed between the patients and the author, and the way both parties grew in the course of these experiences. Along the way, the book describes the life of a resident physician and reflects on the way the medical system treats both its patients and doctors. On Call provides a window into the experience of patients at critical junctures in life and into the author's own experience as a new member of the medical profession.
Providing a practical, accessible guide to all emergency situations encountered by junior doctors, this book aims to give them the confidence to recognise these and manage them.
Author: Piers Page
Publisher: Oxford University Press
This book is an easy-to-use guide to the management of common medical emergencies. Emergencies nearly always present first to the junior doctor, either as a result of direct observation on the ward, or a phone call from nursing staff when on call. The key to their management is timely recognition and intervention. This book gives the junior doctor and senior medical student the confidence to do this. The text covers emergencies from both a problem-based and disease-based approach, with the book being divided into two sections - presentations and diseases. Cross-referencing between these two sections enables quick reference under pressure, with clear, step-by-step instructions and advice on when and who to call for help.

Publisher: Elsevier Health Sciences
This book provides a structured approach to the initial assessment, resuscitation, differential diagnosis and short-term management of common on-call problems. It also provides an overall guide to hospital practice and acute clinical skills. It is designed to help junior doctors and senior medical students acquire a logical, practical and efficient approach, which is essential for problem-based learning and acute management. Clinical problem-solving is an essential skill for the doctor on call. Traditionally, the diagnosis and management of a patient’s problems are approached with an ordered, structured and sequential system (e.g. history-taking, physical examination, and review of available investigations) before formulating the provisional and differential diagnoses and the management plan. In an emergency, doctors proceed concurrently with resuscitation, history, examination, investigation and definitive treatment. Stabilisation of the airway, breathing, circulation and neurological disability must occur in the first few minutes to avoid death and disability. A ‘complete history and physical examination’ can take 60 minutes or more to complete. However, while on call this is not possible, as unnecessary time spent on a patient with a relatively minor complaint may deny adequate treatment time to patients who may require resuscitation. This book provides a focused approach to many clinical problems in order to increase efficiency and improve time management. Latest 2010 ACLS guidelines Practical problem based format – individual patient problems carefully analysed to allow the doctor to make correct assessment and not miss important diagnoses All terms, definitions and clinical information reviewed and rewritten to match local health system practice Student Consult title Completely revised throughout and updated with the latest 2010 resuscitation and antibiotic guidelines

Author: Richard Graham
Publisher: Oxford University Press, USA
This essential handbook provides indispensable guidance for all those seeking or reporting investigations in radiology which arises in an emergency setting. It summarises the major problems faced on-call and provides advice on the most suitable radiological tests to request as well as suggesting an appropriate timescale for imaging. From a radiologist's perspective, it lists in concise format the protocol for each test and outlines the expected findings. Emergency radiology is a crucial component of emergency care as a whole. It is rare for a patient to undergo emergency surgery or treatment without prior imaging. Radiology is the new gate-keeper in clinical practice with an emergency CT scan of the head being performed in most UK hospitals every day. Radiology can confirm a diagnosis, sending a patient down a pathway of established therapy; confirm normality, leading to patient discharge; detect an unsuspected abnormality, suggesting an alternative action altogether; or be non-contributory. This concise, portable handbook supports emergency-setting radiology and helps the reader in this vital field.

Emergency medicine is practised in a fast moving, ever-changing environment. The individuals who work in emergency departments are required to think even faster and adapt even more frequently.The skills needed to perform at this level go far beyond the extensive medical training they all receive. The art of listening is equally important in the practice of any medicine, but doubly so in the emergency department. Every piece of information, every personal experience, every second opinion and every voice in the room may mean the difference between immediate and delayed action, sometimes even life and death.The tales recounted here illustrate how the tiniest detail can unlock a medical mystery, calm a child, comfort a loved one, or save a life.
