In order to get more accurate results, our search has the following Google-Type search functionality:
If you use '+' in front of a word, then that word will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry +Potter will return results with the word 'Potter'.
If you use '-' in front of a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry -Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
If you use 'AND' between two words, then both of those words will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry AND Potter will return results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'OR' between two words, then bth of those words may or may not be present in the search results.
ex: Harry OR Potter will return results with just 'Harry', results with just 'Potter' and results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'NOT' before a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry NOT Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
Placing '""' around words will perform a phrase search. The search results will contain those words in that order.
ex: "Harry Potter" will return any results with 'Harry Potter' in them, but not 'Potter Harry'.
Using '*' in a word will perform a wildcard search. The '*' signifies any number of characters. Searches can not start with a wildcard.
ex: Pot*er will return results with words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er'. In this case, 'Potter' will be a match.
This book provides a structured approach to the initial assessment, resuscitation, differential diagnosis and short-term management of common on-call problems. It also provides an overall guide to hospital practice and acute clinical skills. It is designed to help junior doctors and senior medical students acquire a logical, practical and efficient approach, which is essential for problem-based learning and acute management. Clinical problem-solving is an essential skill for the doctor on call. Traditionally, the diagnosis and management of a patient's problems are approached with an ordered, structured and sequential system (e.g. history-taking, physical examination, and review of available investigations) before formulating the provisional and differential diagnoses and the management plan. In an emergency, doctors proceed concurrently with resuscitation, history, examination, investigation and definitive treatment. Stabilisation of the airway, breathing, circulation and neurological disability must occur in the first few minutes to avoid death and disability. A 'complete history and physical examination' can take 60 minutes or more to complete. However, while on call this is not possible, as unnecessary time spent on a patient with a relatively minor complaint may deny adequate treatment time to patients who may require resuscitation. This book provides a focused approach to many clinical problems in order to increase efficiency and improve time management.
