The Emergency Medicine Manual provides the latest information about the practice of emergency medicine, with particular relevance to Australia and New Zealand. It covers all the major areas of acute care medicine as well as providing relevant information about chronic conditions that may influence acute care. Extensively used by ACEM specialists and trainees, the breadth of its content also makes it a valuable resource for general practitioners, international medical graduates, medical students, nurses who practice in critical care areas and paramedics. Information is presented in a ready reference format that enables the reader to find what they are looking for in the minimum amount of time.

Although particularly relevant to practitioners in Australia and New Zealand, the manual is used in many other countries such as the UK, Ireland, Hong Kong, Canada, the U.S.A., Saudi Arabia and South Africa.
