Emergency physicians care for patients with any condition that may be encountered in an emergency department. This requires that they know about a vast number of emergencies, some common and many rare. Physicians who have trained in any of the subspecialties – cardiology, neurology, OBGYN and many others – have narrowed their fields of study, allowing their patients to benefi t accordingly. The Oxford University Press Emergencies series has combined the very best of these two knowledge bases, and the result is the unique product you are now holding. Each handbook is authored by an emergency physician and a sub-specialist, allowing the reader instant access to years of expertise in a rapid access patient-centered format. Together with evidence-based recommendations, you will have access to their tricks of the trade, and the combined expertise and approaches of a sub-specialist and an emergency physician.
