Two titles from the bestselling Oxford Medical Handbooks series are now available together in this great value pack. The third edition of the best-selling Oxford Handbook of Acute Medicine is an up-to-date, practical and comprehensive guide to the management of the acutely ill patient. This edition has been revised throughout to include the most up-to-date guidelines and treatment management plans. A new junior author ensures that the content remains relevant and accessible to all medics approaching acute medicine for the first time. This edition includes a new chapter which focuses on common presentations, and quick reference boxes throughout highlight top priorities in the management of each condition. The section on practical procedures has also been expanded to include core competencies for the Foundation Programme. With brand new figures and clinical tips from the experienced authors, the third edition of the Oxford Handbook of Acute Medicine remains the must-have resource for all those dealing with acute illness. The Oxford Handbook for the Foundation Programme returns for a fourth edition with clear and thorough clinical guidance and honest advice to help you excel in your first two years as a doctor. This edition has been fully updated in line with the latest guidelines from NICE, Resuscitation Council UK, and the British Thoracic Society among others. This book gives you practical, step-by-step guidance on everything from neurological to gastroenterological presentations. Emergency presentations are highlighted in red and indexed on the inside front cover to give you fast access to the information you need. This edition also includes a fully revised chapter on pharmacopeia with references to the British National Formulary, as well as chapters on practical procedures and interpreting results. The Oxford Handbook for the Foundation Programme is also a unique resource for things they don't teach you at medical school about being a doctor and life on the wards. The authors have drawn on their own experiences and careful research to help you understand issues ranging from your pay and pension, stress and workplace relations, paperwork, and career development. This is an excellent resource for Foundation Programme trainees and medical students preparing themselves for life as a doctor. With this pocket-sized guide at your side you'll never be alone on the wards again.

Review from previous edition 'The real gems in this book are in the clinical presentations section, where management is arranged according to presenting complaint rather than by condition...a book...pitched at the right level for a junior doctor.' * British Journal of Hospital Medicine, March 2009 *
'I would whole-heartedly recommend this book to any new doctorsdeals with all the situations I have encountered so far as a FY1.realistic and focussedIt's a fantastic resource. Every new junior doctor should have a copy. And, as I have found, for some things their seniors will want to look at it too.' * BMA Book Awards, September 2012 *
