This book features guidance on the response to emergency situations and the treatment of patients during the time up to hospital admission. This 'golden hour' is a vital time and treatment received during it has a profound effect on eventual outcome. Information is presented in a highly visual notes format for ease of use.
"Here at long last is a clear and definitive text home grown, which will be much valued by all our colleagues, not only doctors engaged in immediate care."British Medical Journal summary I like this book very much. It is reasonably priced and fact per pound exceedingly good value. I would suggest it is the most important book to read in preparation for the Diploma in Immediate Medical Care and a wise investment for the surgery (and car) of the practising immediate care doctor."Journal of the British Association of Immediate Care
