In this era of evidence-based medicine, one of the biggest challenges confronting acute medicine clinicians is keeping abreast with the rapidly changing recommendations that guide clinical practice. Oxford Desk Reference: Acute Medicine allows easy access to evidence-based materials on commonly encountered acute medical problems to ensure the optimum management of the acutely unwell patient. Collating all the research-based guidelines and protocols in one easily accessible place and presenting it in a uniform style, this practical book is hugely advantageous for a busy clinician as it is not always easy to access research-based guidelines and protocols when needed in the clinic.
The book is designed so that each subject forms a self-contained topic in its own right. This makes the information simple to find, read, and absorb, so that the book can be consulted in the clinic or ward setting for information on the optimum management of a particular condition.
Edited by three experts in acute medicine, this book should never be far from the acute medicine clinician's side.
