Accidents and Emergencies in Children Press Reviews

This medium-sized book is ideal for a departmental reference book. It is well presented with clear headings in bold type and a good index, and is extremely easy to use ... an excellent book for junior nurses and doctors working in the A & E department ... A well thought out and highly recommended book. * Sue Pearce, Accident and Emergency Nursing, Vol. 2, No. 2, April 1994 * This is a welcome and long-awaited publication on a specialist subject which has hitherto not been represented by a dedicated book. The overall impression is of a very thorough and well-planned book with no serious errors or omissions ... Highly recommended reading for all GP trainees and SHOs about to embark on their Accident and Emergency Department attachments: it is inexpensive and good value. * Journal of the Royal Naval Medical Service, 1993; 79 *
