  3. 3. 3For more information on all our books, please visit Pre-hospital Obstetric Emergency Training Advanced Life Support Group Manchester, UK The Pre-hospital Obstetric Emergency Training (POET) programme provides an introduction to the obstetric patient and the anatomical and physiological changes that occur during pregnancy (including interpretation of patient-held records and rapid assessment of the obstetric patient). It includes clear definitions and describes risk factors, diagnosis and pre-hospital management of significant problems that occur in both early and late pregnancy and the immediate postnatal period. These are all situations that the pre- hospital practitioner may attend. This text and the accompanying integrated on-line and ‘hands on’ course will help practitioners identify and manage a range of time-critical obstetric emergencies specifically in the pre-hospital setting, and provides a structured examination and assessment technique as an aid to determining what treatment should be provided before transport, as well as when and how urgently transport should be initiated. POET is of relevance to paramedics, ambulance staff, doctors, and nurses working in the emergency pre-hospital setting and to midwives facilitating home births. It will also be of considerable value to medical and nursing practitioners working in Emergency Departments and unscheduled care settings where immediate access to skilled obstetric assistance is not available. 2009 | 9781405184755 | 224 pages | £29.99/$59.95/€37.90 Pocket Guide to Teaching for Medical Instructors 2nd Edition Advanced Life Support Group Manchester, UK This new edition of the bestselling Pocket Guide to Teaching for Medical Instructors provides an updated guide for instructors teaching on life support courses.

Wyer University of Alberta; McGill University; Michigan State University; Emory University; Roosevelt Hospital Center, New York; Columbia University Emergency physicians assess and manage a wide variety of problems from patients presenting with a diversity of severities, ranging from mild to severe and life-threatening. They are expected to maintain their competency and expertise in areas where there is rapid knowledge change. Evidence-based Emergency Medicine is the first book of its kind in emergency medicine to tackle the problems practicing physicians encounter in the emergency setting using an evidence-based approach. It summarizes the published evidence available for the diagnosis and treatment of common emergency health care problems in adults. Each chapter contextualizes a topic area using a clinical vignette and generates a series of key clinically important diagnostic and treatment questions. By completing detailed reviews of diagnostic and treatment research, using evidence from systematic reviews, RCTs, and prospective observational studies, the authors provide conclusions and practical recommendations. Focusing primarily on diagnosis in areas where evidence for treatment is well accepted (e.g. DVTs), and treatment in other diseases where diagnosis is not complex (e.g. asthma), this text is written by leading emergency physicians at the forefront of evidence-based medicine. Evidence-based Emergency Medicine is ideal for emergency physicians and trainees, emergency department staff, and family physicians specialising in the acute care of medical and injured patients. 2008 | 9781405161435 | 680 pages | £165.99/$289.00/€205.00 Critical Decisions in Emergency and Acute Care Electro- cardiography William J. Brady & Jonathon D. Truwit University of Virginia; University of Virginia This scenario-based text provides answers to urgent and emergent questions in acute, emergency, and critical care situations focusing on the electrocardiogram in patient care management. The text is arranged in traditional topics areas such as ACS, dysrhythmia, etc yet each chapter is essentially a question with several cases illustrating the clinical dilemma — the chapter itself is a specific answer to the question. This is a unique format among textbooks with an ECG focus. The clinical scenarios cover the issues involved in detecting and managing major cardiovascular conditions. Focused, structured discussion then solves these problems in a clinically relevant, rapid, and easy to read fashion. This novel approach to ECG instruction is ideal for practicing critical care and emergency physicians, specialist nurses, cardiologists, as well as students and trainees with a special interest in the ECG. 2009 | 9781405159067 | 488 pages | £59.99/$99.95/€72.90 Emergency Medical Cat.indd 13 4/20/10 6:50:26 PM

Brady University of Maryland; University of Virginia With over 200 traces to test your knowledge, this book is a first class learning tool for emergency physicians.

  17. 17. 17For more information on all our books, please visit Practical Teaching in Emergency Medicine Robert L. Rogers, Amal Mattu, Michael Winters & Joseph Martinez All University of Maryland School of Medicine Inherent to the teaching and practice of emergency medicine are specific challenges not found in other specialties - the unknowns of the emergency department, the need to identify life- and limb-threatening conditions, the pressure to solve problems and find solutions quickly, and the orchestration of clinical specialists and ancillary services. Because of these unique demands, books written by clinicians from other disciplines, that extrapolate their information from other specialties, arent always suitable references for teachers of emergency medicine. This book is different — it shows how to incorporate effective teaching strategies into the unique teaching atmosphere of the emergency department, how to effectively lecture, lead small groups, give feedback, foster life-long faculty development skills, and much more - it is written by emergency medicine physicians for emergency medicine physicians. Practical Teaching in Emergency Medicine gets to the essential core of how to best teach the art of practicing emergency medicine and provides the blueprint to become a better teacher, providing guidance on how to accomplish skilful teaching in busy emergency departments. It provides emergency physicians and trainees with the necessary tools to effectively and efficiently transmit information to learners in the often times chaotic emergency department environment. 2009 | 9781405176224 | 264 pages | £32.99/$52.95/€39.90 Invasive Medical Skills: A Multimedia Approach Mark Stoneham & Jonathan Westbrook Both John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford and Oxford University First Prize in the Electronic Media category at the British Medical Association Book Awards 2008 Allay your anxieties about performing complex practical procedures under pressure and increase your confidence and competence with Invasive Medical Skills: A Multimedia Approach.
