Essentials of Immediate Medical Care Summary


Essentials of Immediate Medical Care by C.John Eaton

This book gives guidance on the response to emergency situations and the treatment of patients during the time up to hospital admission. This 'golden hour' is a vital time, and treatment received during it has a profound effect on eventual outcome. The information in the book is presented in a highly visual notes format for ease of use. "Essentials of Immediate Carebook" has its origins in courses run by the author for the British Association of Immediate Care (BASICS), although for this edition, it has also been made more appealing to paramedics. Clear guidance for coping with emergency situations is not readily available in one place, except for this book.

Essentials of Immediate Medical Care Reviews


"Here at long last is a clear and definitive text home grown, which will be much valued by all our colleagues, not only doctors engaged in immediate care." --British Medical Journal "In summary I like this book very much. It is reasonably priced and 'fact per pound' exceedingly good value. I would suggest it is the most important book to read in preparation for the Diploma in Immediate Medical Care and a wise investment for the surgery (and car) of the practising immediate care doctor." --Journal of the British Association of Immediate Care
