Acute Medicine offers an accessible and concise guide to the practical management of all acute medical problems likely to be encountered in the emergency department, ambulatory care centre, acute medical unit or on the wards. Reflecting the maturation of acute medicine as a separate specialty, the book is divided into common presentations, specific problems and procedures. New to the fifth edition is a chapter on bed-side ultrasonography; throughout, emphasis is placed on patient safety, and the use of flow diagrams, tables and figures ensures that key information is quickly accessible. Thoroughly revised by experts in the subject, and updated to reflect current approaches to diagnosis and management, Acute Medicine is an excellent companion for the trainee as well as an aide-mémoire for the more experienced physician.

Undergraduate and postgraduate teaching increasingly favours a symptom-based approach to diagnosis. Unlike many other textbooks in acute medicine, this book reflects this shift in emphasis, presenting a logical and structured approach to the diagnosis and initial management of acutely unwell adults. It discusses the relevant pathophysiology of each clinical presentation, and provides a comprehensive table of differential diagnoses, highlighting common causes. The book's description of generic emergency management emphasises important diagnoses, and explains relevant history, examination findings and investigations involved in assessment or diagnosis. Senior medical students and junior doctors in their first four years after qualifying will find this an invaluable aid to honing their clinical practice. The logical systems of diagnostic thought will serve them throughout their careers. No book can replace hard work on the ward and in clinics but books can speed up the acquisition of skills by fostering sound basic principles and developing the right instincts. Diagnosis in Acute Medicine is particularly helpful in this regard. I strongly recommend it.A " - From the Foreword by Ian Pavord

This book contains a variety of medical case studies from actual patients presenting to the emergency department. It includes not only typical cases that present to the ED but also less common, yet very important cases that one can't afford to miss. Each chapter begins with a case – or set of cases with typical and atypical aspects – of the disease in question. This is followed by high-value learning points on the condition with introductory/background points, physiology and pathophysiology of the disease, how to make the diagnosis, and finally how to initiate treatment. The cases provide expert discussion with tips and tricks, personal experience with management of each of the cases, and a follow-up description of the outcome of the cases to provide the reader with closure. To supplement each case study, all 67 chapters include a pattern recognition component that identifies the key diagnostic features of the disease discussed. The chapters conclude with a summary of the diagnostic and treatment details of each condition. Using a concise, easy-to-read, bulleted format, the book helps readers to learn, evaluate, adopt new practices, right now (LEARN). Emergency Medicine Case Studies - LEARNing Rounds: Learn, Evaluate, Adopt, Right Now is an essential resource for a variety of emergency medicine clinicians including experienced physicians, residents, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, and medical students rotating in the emergency department. Finally, this book can be used as a basis for small group discussions, especially in emergency medicine training programs.
