AFEM 2nd Edition – (Oxford description)
The AFEM Handbook of Acute and Emergency Care 2e provides a field reference for emergency care providers in Africa, which addresses the African regional disease burden and recommends diagnostic and management pathways. The text is designed to be used by all levels of providers for the care of acutely ill or injured patients and covers the full scope of emergency and acute care. It addresses both out-of-hospital and in-hospital interventions and provides diagnostic and management strategies for the most common emergency care problems faced by providers in sub-Saharan Africa.

Uniquely, the text offers care providers management strategies based on available resources: it guides care providers through a rapid systematic and integrated approach to patient stabilisation and resuscitation, stratified to three resource levels: minimal, moderate and full resources.

The primary target market includes emergency medicine practitioners (medical doctors and emergency care technicians). In addition, it is aimed at MBChB students and National Diploma students taking modules in Emergency Medicine or Emergency care, and students enrolled in certificate courses in Emergency care at provincial colleges.
