This pocket revision guide will be a must for all medical students preparing for a major exam in clinical medicine or needing a rapid reminder during a clinical attachment. Rapid Medicine is the first of a brand new series of short books, covering key facts in a simple and memorable fashion, using a mnemonic to aid recall. It covers over 200 common medical conditions that students will encounter on the wards, in clinics and in their exams. It acts as a rapid refresher, and is intended to be a concise no-nonsense book covering just the basic relevant facts. Arranged in A-Z format, each topic will be covered using the same headings - Definition, Aetiology, Associations/Risk Factors, Epidemiology, History, Examination, Pathology, Investigations, Management, Complications, Prognosis and Differential Diagnosis.

This book has two main purposes: formative case analysis and self-assessment of medicine in old age. It presents clinicians with a series of cases on which to base discussion of the investigation and management of patients. It also provides the trainee, or established doctor, with a medium to help prepare for post-graduate examinations and clinical practice. The authors have chosen 109 cases, a total of 250 questions/answers, illustrated by color photographs, diagrams, and tables. The cases cover the main modes of presentation of acute illness in old age, such as fall, confusion, incontinence, weight loss and immobility, with examples from all the major systems. These illustrate the complexity of diagnosis and treatment of medical illness in frail older people and the need to think widely and laterally when caring for such patients. The questions are mostly in best-of-five format to reflect the current style of multiple choice questions used in examination, though some are open questions as the basis for tutorials. Many of the clinical stems have been expanded to improve the educational function of the book and to test more rigorously the reader’s deductive thinking.

The cases are a blend of the more common and especially interesting conditions, and cover clinical presentation, etiology/pathogenesis, investigation, diagnosis and differential diagnosis, management options, prognosis and husbandry advice to the client. The case-based approach offers the freedom to deal succinctly with multifactorial and multisystemic conditions. Cases are cross-referenced, cite key references and there is a detailed index. The Rapid Review is designed to appeal to veterinary practitioners dealing with an ever-wider variety of animals, to veterinary instructors and students, technicians, nurses and assistants, and to other animal health professionals in practice and training.

For a busy clinician in the Emergency Department, the ability to spot a lethal cardiac condition is critical. Rapid Interpretation of ECGs in Emergency Medicine fills a gap in ECG training in an easy-to-use, highly visual format. ECG patterns, gathered from patient records and from the files of physicians at the Harvard-affiliated hospitals, represent the range of pathologies that hospitalists, internal medicine physicians, family medicine physicians, and emergency medicine physicians must recognize. The format of Rapid Interpretation of ECGs in Emergency Medicine is to first show an ECG in its native state to give you the chance to recognize and interpret salient features. The page can then be flipped to look at the same ECG with abnormal patterns enlarged, highlighted in color, and described in brief text. The ECGs are presented with and without annotations so you can test your diagnostic skills.

Emerging infectious disease threats that may not have available treatments or vaccines can directly affect the security of the world's health since these diseases also know no boundaries and will easily cross borders. Sustaining public and private investment in the development of medical countermeasures (MCMs) before an emerging infectious disease becomes a public health emergency in the United States has been extremely challenging. Interest and momentum peak during a crisis and wane between events, and there is little interest in disease threats outside the United States until they impact people stateside. On March 26 and 27, 2015, the Institute of Medicine convened a workshop in Washington, DC to discuss how to achieve rapid and nimble MCM capability for new and emerging threats. Public- and private-sector stakeholders examined recent efforts to prepare for and respond to outbreaks of Ebola Virus Disease, pandemic influenza, and coronaviruses from policy, budget, and operational standpoints. Participants discussed the need for rapid access to MCM to ensure national security and considered strategies and business models that could enhance stakeholder interest and investment in sustainable response capabilities. This report summarizes the presentations and discussions from this workshop.
