"Acute medicine is a part of the CCU series from Wiley which are a useful set of titles that allow the reader to encounter a range of acute medical conditions, 22 presentations that give the reader a reasonable overview. The start of the title is particularly useful as it goes over the ABCDE of acute triage of patients which is an essential skill to understand as a medical student approaching your finals and certainly as a doctor. Following this for the medical student the title usefully recaps history & examination skills for medicine before discussing important investigations and finally prior to the cases giving a lengthy easy to understand discourse on the ECG and how to interpret it.
After the cases there is a self assessment section that tests the reader on the knowledge that they should have based on what the title has covered. Having used this book in part to revise for my finals, I found the difficulty & style of these questions to be similar to and a good reflection of what was encountered within the finals examinations.
The disadvantage of this title I suppose is the small number of cases it has, although these cases cover a broad range of medical conditions/presentations that you could expect to encounter in the hospital there aren′t that many. Other series such as the 100 cases series (by their title) cover a significantly greater number of clinical conditions/presentations, though not in as much detail, this may be more desirable to some.
In conclusion this series of titles is well worth considering using for preparing for your finals examinations and others as an undergraduate medical student. It may however be worth you considering borrowing the title from your medical school or other library first and if you feel it is worth adding to your personal library, then doing so." (Medical Student, Lancaster University)
"This is a great book for people who like solid answers to practical questions. Unlike some revision books this one is actually useful to doctors and not just medical students wanting to pass finals. It tackles common presentations, not rare conditions and is interesting to read." (The Murmer, August 2009)From the Author:
Traditionally, medical text books have tended to be structured around clinical diagnoses. Chapters entitled: 'Myocardial Infarction', 'Pneumonia', 'Peptic ulceration', etc, may incorporate detailed descriptions of each condition's epidemiology, physiology and clinical features. Sadly 'real' clinical medicine is not this simple - patients present with a problem, rather than a diagnosis; the latter is often only reached after careful assessment and investigation. 'Acute Medicine - Clinical Cases Uncovered' tackles this challenge by starting with the patient's initial complaint and working through to the diagnosis via a series of clinical questions. Each chapter tackles a different problem, and I have selected these to reflect the common scenarios which students, junior doctors and nurses could expect to encounter on the Acute Medical Unit.
Having worked as a consultant in Acute Medicine for over 10 years I have seen patients with many hundreds of different diagnoses. Fortunately the problems with which they presented to hospital can be categorised into a much smaller number of groups. The 22 cases selected for inclusion should encompass the presenting complaint of more than 80% of the medical patients admitted as emergencies.
I hope that readers will find this a useful book. Although originally aimed at clinical medical students, I understand that nurses, junior doctors and allied healthcare professionals working in the field of acute medicine have all found it useful. The Acute Medical Unit can be an intimidating environment for students, but is also a rich resouce for learning. I feel that this is the sort of text book which I would like to have owned as a student going onto the wards for the first time, and hope that it will help to make the first encounters with 'real clinical medicine' less daunting!
