'... good value. This Cambridge book has much to interest surgical trainees who will find it a useful source of advice and education; it should be on hand for all A and E medical and nursing staff on a 24-hour basis.' British Journal of Surgery 'There is no other British textbook of A & E medicine which combines the breadth of subjects with such depth of detail ... It will certainly act as a reference source for middle grade and senior A & E staff who have to teach others and for those taking their A & E Fellowship or Faculty Exit examination. It shoud find a place in most A & E departments and hospital libraries and many A & E consultants will wish to purchase their own copy.' Journal of the Royal College of Physicians of London 'Both for daily use and for study, this excellent book should be accessible to all in the UK who treat critically ill and injured patients.'
