The Oxford Clinical Imaging Guides are specifically designed to help doctors master imaging techniques. Each guide explains the principles and practice of using imaging in an easy-to-read, highly-illustrated, and authoritative manner. Point of Care Ultrasound for Emergency Medicine and Resuscitation is the definitive guide to using this indispensable clinical tool quickly, safely, and accurately to diagnose patients in emergency, acute, and critical care settings. With a practical focus on how to perform ultrasound and interpret images, this book demonstrates how the reader can use ultrasound safely in patient management to diagnose and manage shock, acute presentations, or the acute phases of key conditions. Extensively illustrated, this resource also comes with online access to 160 ultrasound clips and over 130 annotated ultrasound images. Written by expert educators, this book is mapped to the curriculum for the International Federation for Emergency Medicine to teach emergency and acute medics exactly what they need to know. This guide is highly relevant for the syllabi of Emergency Medicine colleges and associations in the USA, Canada, UK, Australasia and South Africa.
