Emergencies in Clinical Medicine

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
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 app 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 app 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.
• A concise guide to the practical management of core medical emergencies
• Uses a series of four icons to distinguish clearly the degree of urgency in which the emergency must be treated
• Provides guidance on initial management of serious medical problems and when to seek help
