An established guide to the management of the acutely ill patient, this handbook has been revised throughout for the third edition. It relates pathophysiology to clinical features to help make the diagnosis quickly and identify priorities for treatment. It also provides step-by-step management advice when specialist help is being awaited. Summary boxes detail key points in the management of common medical emergencies and there is a new chapter on differential diagnosis of common presentations. Details of specialist treatments are also included.
