The first edition of the Guide to the Essentials in Emergency Medicine, co-edited by two prominent emergency physicians, Associate Professors Shirley Ooi and Peter Manning, with a combined total of 64 years of Emergency Medicine practice between them, was first published in Singapore in 2004.

This book focuses on the practical management of the most life-threatening and common conditions encountered by emergency physicians. It is designed to offer a balanced viewpoint advocating the tenets of evidence-based medicine.

This second edition preserves several of its predecessor s hallmark features. - Easy-to-read format: clinical descriptions are presented succinctly and problems are introduced with the same symptom-based approach in Section One. - Popular sections such as Caveats, covering the pitfalls likely to be encountered in medical practice, and Special Tips for GPs are retained.

New features of this second edition include: - Twenty new chapters - Thorough revision of the text for more content coverage, easier reading, and reflection of the latest evidence - Reorganisation of Section Two into specific systems for ease of reading and revision for exams - Inclusion of coloured photographs - Addition of further illustrations, ECGs, plain radiographs, CT scans and ultrasound images

Key Study Features: - A quick reference for medical officers (residents) serving their Emergency Medicine rotations, emergency department nurses and ancillary staff. - Valuable foundational reading for basic and advanced Emergency Medicine trainees preparing for their postgraduate examination. - Practical, focused and concise presentations of common conditions encountered by medical students during their rotations in the Emergency Department. - An indispensable guide to treating multidisciplinary emergencies for house officers and medical officers serving their rotations other than Emergency Medicine.

Key Content Features: - Special Tips for GPs provides a helpful section for general practitioners, paramedics and pre-hospital care personnel during the first 30 minutes of multidisciplinary emergencies. - Symptom-based approach is eminently readable, current, succinct and systematic.
