Sarawak Handbook of Medical Emergencies, 3rd edition

This handbook features a few difference compared to its predecessor (2nd edition). Among the few noted differences were:

  1. There are additions and updates of the chapters whenever possible.
  2. New updated values according to international/ local consensus & guidelines
  3. Legitimate and larger fonts, making it more comfortable to the eyes.
  4. Glossy paper quality, making it seems nicer (although you might have trouble highlighting the book)
  5. Better presentations for the charts and tables.
  6. An index at the back of the book, making referencing easier. 
  7. Last but not least, the cover is different.

This handbook can be purchased from the bookshop below at RM42 as of date (10th May 2011) at:

oh really? Mind updating us on the price in Kamal? As I've yet to go to Kamal to have a look, I'm not sure of the actual price sold In Kamal.

Plus, I'm staying around 10km away from Kamal, which I think should not be a problem. :P
