“Review from previous edition: Having recently purchased the new Oxford Handbook of Accident and Emergency Medicine, I would like to say that it is an excellent update. As a Specialist Registrar . . . I am involved in training all new AandE doctors and will recommend this book highly.” –Dr Reshad Khodabocus, St James’s Hospital, Leeds, July 2005

“The 1st edition (published 1999) has become the “Bible” of Emergency care for many practitioners working in this field – Doctors, Nurses, Paramedics etc… I used it throughout my Specialist Registrar training as both an “on the spot” diagnostic tool but also as a reference aid for my FRCS and FFAEM. There’s a lot more in it than you think! The second edition has built on and consolidated all that was good in the 1st edition but added some new sections and expanded others. It includes up to date information and references… I would not only recommend but also INSIST that all practitioners… in emergency care read and used this handbook. It would also be useful to Doctors in almost all specialties including General Practice, General Surgery and General Medicine.” –-Medical Defence Union
