Synopsis

Musculo-skeletal Problems in Emergency Medicine by Jim (Consultant in A&E Medicine, Northern General Hospital, Sheffield) Wardrope, Bryan (Consultant Orthopaedic Physici English

Musculo-skeletal problems underlie many of the cases seen by doctors working in accident and emergency departments. It is estimated that over 4 million patients per annum will attend an A & E department in England and Wales with such a condition. Although many of these problems may be considered less serious, when compared to others seen in A & E departments, a misdiagnosis could have far reaching and even fatal consequences. It is also the area where statistically A & E doctors are most likely to make an error of diagnosis. Musculo-skeletal problems in emergency medicine provides guidelines on the history taking and examination of patients with musculo-skeletal problems. The book starts by explaining the pathology of musculo-skeletal injuries, describing the wide range of non-traumatic musculo-skeletal problems that present to an A & E department. Each section of the body is then dealt with in detail, with advice given on the management of Uspecific patient presentations. Throughout, emphasis is placed on the diagnosis of traumatic and non-traumatic injuries, and detailed guidance provided on their initial investigation, management, and ongoing referral. The book is fully illustrated and includes 'key points' at the start of each chapter.

Reviews

'This is a well-written, easy reference guide for starters in accident and emergency surgery and for the young orthopaedic trainee...an interesting book with a straightforward purpose...I think that this book should be recommended for junior doctors embarking on a career in accident and emergency medicine or in orthopaedics, for senior medical students, and allied professionals caring for patients who may present acutely with muskuloskeletal conditions.' * Nicola Maffulli, The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh 1998. * This is an excellent book....clear guidance under specific headings. No nonsense and no waffle. * Marion Richardson, University of Hertfordshire. *'
