Key skills that will be learnt or refined by using the book are: the identification of records; the ability to quickly see whether they are complete, sorting them and homing in on what is relevant. In addition, the book aims to assist practitioners cross-referencing the records to check that certain activities have been completed by the medical and nursing teams. Medical areas are covered with basic anatomy and physiology, common complaints, symptoms, investigations and tests and explanation of treatments and sample medical records.

Experienced practitioners can quickly review particular topics to ensure that all areas have been understood, and check medical terminology and translation of medical words and symbols. Some coverage of drugs and their effects is included. Illustrations are provided when applicable. Medical Areas covered are: cardiac; gynaecology; obstetrics; orthopaedic; paediatrics; neurology; and general surgery.
