Many patients come to the Accident and Emergency department in pain or with conditions requiring local or general anaesthesia. Close co-operation between the staff of the Anaesthesia and Accident and Emergency departments is vital if anaesthesia and analgesia are to be dealt with efficiently and safely. This new edition of Anaesthesia and Analgesia in Emergency Medicine has been extensively revised throughout, especially with regard to resuscitation techniques. It provides a concise guide to anaesthesia and pain relief in Emergency Medicine. Throughout, the emphasis is on the practical management of problems, giving clear instructions about the treatment of common conditions.
