It is now 21 years since I had the honour of writing the foreword to the first edition of Practice Tips. Since then, the wisdom and practical skills of John Murtagh have spread throughout the medical world through his writings.
This sixth edition incorporates several new features, including the management of emergencies, the interpretation of ECGs, more injection techniques and the management of burns, scalds and smoke inhalation.
I have no doubt that this new edition of Practice Tips will find a place on the bookshelves of many practitioners in general practice and in emergency departments.
