This online resource is a case-based guide to challenging areas in emergency medicine, and covers the core and sub-specialty areas, in particular the often grey areas of intensive care and paediatric emergency medicine. Complex cases are comprehensively examined from a multidisciplinary perspective with detailed consideration given to management options and the contemporary evidence base behind these decisions. An effective revision aid for MCEM and FCEM and a reference during workplace-based assessments, Challenging Concepts in Emergency Medicine highlights critical information through the use of boxed features: 'Learning points', 'Clinical tips', 'Evidence base', and 'Future advances'. Each chapter has been reviewed by a national or international expert in the field and they have provided an 'Expert commentary', giving a unique insight into how today's opinion leaders confront and deal with the very same management challenges that all clinicians can potentially face on a daily basis.
