Elsevier to publish a second edition of Marshall & Ruedy?s On Call: Principles and Protocols
Junior doctors and senior medical students in Australasia are set to benefit from a new local edition of essential clinical guide Marshall & Ruedy?s On Call: Principles and Protocols.
Sydney, 27th April 2011
Elsevier Australia has announced it will publish a new edition of Marshall & Ruedy?s On Call: Principles and Protocols ? an important medical textbook specifically for the Australasian market.
The new edition features a plethora of new and updated content, including the latest 2010 Australasian guidelines for Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) and the most recent resuscitation and antibiotic guidelines. All terms, drugs scales, conversion factors, definitions and clinical information has been reviewed and rewritten to match Australasian health system practice.
There will be no more ?stupid questions? with this definitive guide, which provides immediate access to vital step-by-step information for managing on call situations. The ultimate resource for new doctors left alone soon after training, Marshall & Ruedy?s On Call aims to be an overall guide to hospital practice and acute clinical skills, while helping improve efficiency and time management skills within an on call environment.
The first local edition of Marshall & Ruedy?s On Call: Principles and Protocols was published in 2007, following the success of the US version, now in its fifth edition. It was regarded in the peer-reviewed Journal of Military and Veteran?s Health as ?one of the leading reference manuals in Australasia for those who are embarking on their medical careers involving ?on call??.
Written by specialists practicing and teaching in Australia, the second edition retains the practical problem-based format of the first. Individual patient problems are carefully analysed to allow the doctor to make correct assessment and not miss important diagnoses in a stressful and often time-poor situation.
Marshall & Ruedy?s On Call, 2nd Edition: Principles and Protocols takes a structured approach to the initial assessment, resuscitation, differential diagnosis and short-term management of common on-call medical problems, ranging from respiratory issues to gastrointestinal complaints to cardiac arrest.
It is an answer book for what to do and how to do it quickly, and one that belongs in all new doctors? briefcases.
Elsevier Australia also offers full online access and numerous interactive extras with the purchase of Marshall & Ruedy?s On Call, 2nd Edition: Principles and Protocols.
