This is a website about acute medicine. It describes the care of most acute medical emergencies. Acute medicine concerns the first 24-48h of a patients admission with an acute medical problem. The website is primarily designed for junior hospital doctors (and medical students) working in an acute medicine unit (AMU) - ie acute medicine, emergency medicine and medical take. But family practioners, nurses and others may find it useful too. It is written by a group of UK consultants, with the help of junior doctors and nurses. All practice and enjoy acute care. It is an on-going project
