Editorial Reviews


"The book follow the principles of problem-based learning widely used in medical schools. The design is inviting and the layout easy to use... The book seems particularly suitable for medical students preparing for their finals, but it also has has important things to teach FY1s on the ward and the acute take, FY2s about to start a job in emergency...it seems to succeed at its stated aim of teaching problem-solving in many acute medical scenarios in an approachable fashion."

June 2013, British Journal of Hospital Medicine

From the Back Cover

The latest addition to the Kumar & Clark family, this thoroughly updated new edition covers more than 200 cases presenting with acute symptoms in the hospital, everything from shingles and breathlessness to chest pain, acute coronary syndromes, poisoning, renal failure and stroke. The authors give clear and concise advice on immediate and further management, management of complications, differential diagnoses, history-taking, tips and pitfalls, alerts, investigations, and prioritization.

From customer reviews of the previous edition (Acute Clinical Medicine): The information in this text is concise, relevant and reliable & evidence-based whenever possible. The depth of knowledge goes beyond that expected of clinical medical students and so this book will be of use during the Foundation Course and maybe even specialist training years. & As a ward-based reference it is excellent, containing all the acute situations one is likely to encounter whilst on a medical attachment. Information is outlined in a concise and readable manner but the detail is more than sufficient to impart the key information one needs to know. Key points are regularly reinforced using ¡§Remember!¡¨ textboxes to highlight their importance. & The use of case histories in each section is a good method of highlighting the key points yet also develops understanding and learning when reference is made to a clinical case.. There is good use made of quality diagrams, tables and photographs throughout the text.
