Written by emergency medicine specialists in Hong Kong, this book consists of 70 real cases encountered in an emergency department. Short history, clinical pictures, ECGs, X-rays, CT scans and ultrasound images are included and clinical questions are set from the emergency medicine perspective. Detailed answers are provided with references.

The book is intended for medical personnel working in emergency departments. Senior EM specialists would also find the cases and discussion refreshing and pertinent for updating their existing knowledge. Most of the cases are written according to the required standard of precision for international fellowship examinations.

“Senior trainees would find this a useful preparation for any data interpretation component of an exit examination in emergency medicine, and consultants will find it an interesting and stimulating means of challenging their own knowledge and range of topics.” —Dr Alastair McGowan, OBE, Immediate Past President of the College of Emergency Medicine, UK

“The strengths of this book are in its relevance, practicality, brevity, relevance to examinations, frequent illustrations, provocative question-and-answer style, and in communicating key points. This is an extremely interesting text which stimulates me to read more and to investigate the subjects further.” —Professor Timothy Rainer, Director of Accident and Emergency Academic Unit in the Chinese University of Hong Kong
