Professor Tony Brown, Discipline of Anaesthesiology and Critical Care at the Royal Brisbane Clinical School in the Department of Emergency Medicine had two new books published in October.
The first was ‘Marshall and Ruedy’s On Call Principles and Protocols’, 2nd edition (Elsevier), which is used as a course text by Year 4 students in the SOM.
“This book is designed as a practical guide to clinical reasoning and shows how to work through differential diagnoses and manage patients with an array of presenting problems from chest pain to abdominal pain, and shortness of breath to hypotension or altered mental status,” explains Professor Tony Brown.
The second was ‘Emergency Medicine Diagnosis and Management’, 6th edition (Hodder Arnold), which is a didactic vade mecum to the Emergency Department that has truly stood the test of time, having originally been published in 1986 when Prof Brown was a registrar working in London!
Both books are now supported by extensive additional online material such as ECGs, x-rays, clinical images, videos, discussions and quizzes. This is all available for free hosted on one of the world’s top medical blog sites Life in the fastlane run by the co-author of both books, Mike Cadogan.
“It is always a thrill to finally see a new edition in print, and the additional online material really value-adds to both books, which hopefully will make the life of the senior medical student and then junior doctor less daunting and more rewarding,” says Professor Brown.
