This book is well known to users on both sides of the Atlantic. It is a practical presentation, with contributions from men experienced and well respected in their fields in Great Britain. It is the type of volume that is devoid of unnecessary words but is sufficiently complete to please the student and practitioner. The subjects include discussions of the emergency bag, hazards of medical procedures, emergencies in blood diseases, emergencies during anesthesia, miscellaneous emergencies, and medicolegal problems. Practical procedures pertaining to vaccines and serums, hemophilia, and other medical problems are also dealt with. Some of the discussions are suited only to those practicing in England, but, in general, the medical information has universal applicability. The book is well prepared, the type is clear, and the pages are easy to read.
