The card set is a convenient, portable study tool for gross anatomy courses, exam preparation, clinical anatomy review during clerkships, and dental and allied health students. Organized and color-coded using the regional approach of Clinically Oriented Anatomy, the cards feature descriptions of structures, concise versions of the text's clinical "Blue Boxes," and correlating images. Realistic anatomic renderings, radiographs, and diagrams of common medical situations complement this clinically oriented material. Information on muscle attachments, innervations, and main actions are also included. New to this edition: 16 introductory cards that give an overview of the major systems; new and improved artwork from the 7th edition of Clinically Oriented Anatomy; additional diagrams, illustrations, and clinical photos; and a hole punch and metal key ring for easy organization and studying on the go. 

The Arrhythmic Patient in the Emergency Department 2016: A Practical Guide for Cardiologists and Emergency Physicians

This book is a practical guide to the differential diagnosis and treatment of patients presenting in the Emergency Department with syncope or arrhythmias, including bradyarrhythmias, atrial fibrillation, narrow and wide QRS tachycardias. In addition, clear advice is provided on the management of patients with cardiac devices and possible dysfunction, electrical storm, or a requirement for urgent surgery. For each topic, a literature review of epidemiology, physiopathology, differential diagnosis, and treatment is conducted. Furthermore, practical suggestions are offered for short-term management, e.g., regarding the decision on when and where to hospitalize the patient; these proposals do not replace but rather summarize or integrate the current guidelines. The book is designed both for emergency physicians and cardiologists, who will be the first to evaluate and treat patients with arrhythmias or potentially arrhythmic problems in the emergency setting. It will also be a useful textbook for students and residents in Cardiology and Emergency Medicine. 

Pre-Hospital Anesthesia Handbook

Pre-Hospital Anaesthesia is one of the most demanding interventions that can be made in the field. The exact incidence of failed intubation is difficult to quantify, but it is clear that it is higher than in hospital. Equally it is certain that anyone undertaking it should have clear instruction in the technique and a thorough understanding of all it entails. This handbook details the procedures, drugs and algorithms used by the crews of the Great North Air Ambulance who have been providing this life saving intervention since 2004. It draws on huge experience in the field and provides a spring board for any practitioner who wishes to take it on.
