Two titles from the bestselling Oxford Medical Handbooks series are now available in this great value pack. The bestselling Oxford Handbook of Clinical Surgery has been thoroughly revised for the fourth edition to include brand new chapters on paediatric orthopaedics and common surgical procedures, as well as new presentations, illustrations, and new anatomy and emergency indexes to aid quick reference. It is an invaluable tool for junior surgical trainees, medical students, nursing, paramedical, and rehabilitation staff. The handbook covers the assessment and preparation of the patient, anaesthesia and critical care, inflammation, wound healing and infection, and the key components of general surgical practice, as well as chapters on other surgical specialties, including plastic, paediatric, and orthopaedic surgery. There are step-by-step descriptions of common operative surgical techniques, practical hints and procedures, and information on signs, symptoms and rarities. Emergency presentations are clearly identified for rapid reference and investigations and management plans are set out in a clear and easy-to-follow way. Surgically relevant anatomy and physiology has been expanded for each area, quick reference symbols ensure the reader is guided to key facts, and there is an increased focus on evidence-based practice with key references throughout. A cut above the rest, this is the essential guide to clinical surgery and the surgical specialities. The first edition of the Oxford Handbook of Orthopaedics and Trauma offers junior doctors, medical students, and all those with an interest in the field the practical and up-to-date information needed for clinical practice. It presents the essentials of orthopaedics and trauma in a concise and user-friendly style for use with patients, in the operating room, and in tutorials. As well as covering the basic principles and conditions of both adult and paediatric orthopaedics and trauma, it also contains a comprehensive overview of anatomy and surgery. Helpful illustrations and diagrams guide the reader, aiding the understanding of movements and anatomical relationships, which are of particular importance in establishing a diagnosis. Information is extensively referenced with further reading materials, providing a structured basis in for all levels of training. Emergency topics are highlighted for quick access and the appendix provides information on common drugs in orthopaedics and trauma, as well as fracture diagrams. The book is clearly laid out, and written in an easily readable note-based style. Blank pages are included for the reader, so that notes, observations, and local protocols can be included, thereby individualising the Handbook. Written by trainees and qualified surgeons, the Oxford Handbook of Orthopaedics and Trauma is an accessible and informative tool for all junior doctors and students in the field.
